Legoboy and Pitfall's Excellent Adventure

I know it's silly, but it is very important to me. James and I have become very good friends over the last few years and when I found out he was coming to the US; well...Our meeting had to happen. In one week, I will be meeting James and his family in Orlando, Florida. I cannot wait.

    The US hopes that by meeting one of our worst, you'll appreciate the rest of us more, @Legoboy . Have fun sniffing ponies and if Flump manages to show, send him my regards.

    Have fun- wish I could join you!

    [My God.  He did it.]

    It is true,  I have become a very good friend to him and yes, he has found out where we are staying and threatening to make an appearance.

    I will have 17 hours in the car to reconsider my decision. Maybe I will fall asleep at the wheel around Knoxville-Ashville and it will make my decision easier.

    I knew all that talk about funding a trip to Florida in the status thread was suspicious...

    If 'sleeping on the floor next to you' means 'make an appearance', then that sounds correct.

    Have a good time!  (For real.)

    I'll be in Orlando at the end of the month, so please clean up after yourselves.

    I'm sure you'll all have lots and all sorts of fun.

    Always quite daunting to meet someone from 'the web' you've got to know pretty well but never actually met. But after my meetings last month, I'm sure it will be all good. Enjoy and good travels!

    I even feel excited about the trip even though I'm not going. Living vicariously I'm guessing ;)

    (And I thought I was dull.)

    @Pitfall69 I don’t know how long you were staying, but @Legoboy I’m sure you’ve planned this while you’re here?:

    Star Wars Celebration 2017 is a fan event being held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando on April 13, 14, 15, and 16. http://www.starwarscelebration.com/

    I used to be a regular on a forum for modified classic cars, got to know a chap quite well and it turned out we were both going to the same race track for a meeting so decided to meet up. Wandered into the paddock and saw a likely looking bloke stood waiting so wandered up and the first words from my mouth were " are you Horney?" His surname was Horn and he used Horney as a forum name....I call him Nick now!

    Enjoy the meet up and be sure to bring lots of Batpods back with you @Legoboy !

    I think my family might have something to say about special Batpod trips.  It's bad enough them having to suffer strangers for a sizeable portion of their trip.  I've assured her that everything will be okay so long as we lock them away at night.

    This is a Full Metal Jacket, Episode I, and Austin Powers reference.  I blew up the meme generator.

    But I'm not a great mime.  I talk too much.



    (By the way, YouTube was quite lacking in Albert Brooks talking mime clips.)

    My bet is that @Legoboy is still awake. Yup, sure enough! Get to sleep!!! :o) Have a safe trip.

    @Pitfall69 Be sure to find a safe place to stop if you feel tired and have a nap. Maybe if you are ready, leave earlier than you intended, leaving extra time for rest or nap stops?

    How many States will you drive through on your road trip?
