This is a few weeks after the fact, but we had a GREAT time and we wanted to share it with you all anyway. We both wanted to write a TR, so rather than filling up DC with two separate long-winded TRs, we attempted to write one VERY long-winded TR together. (I apologize for the length… that’s pretty much entirely my fault.) My comments are in purple, Baloo’s are in green. Hope you like it!! And that it doesn’t get too confusing with two narrators. :wacko:
Cast: PJ & Baloo!
(aka: Jill & Brian)
Day 1 - Saturday
We woke up ridiculously early. After calling Disney for directions (I don’t recommend this - Disney didn’t seem to know where they were located), we were off!! Thankfully, Brian reminded me to get gas this time. Last time we got halfway there and I realized that my little gas light was on, and had been for quite a while. Jill was freaking out and was actually as pale as I was then. I had no bloody idea what to say or do. …so I just looked out the window. Always a good choice of action. We somehow made it to a gas station - crisis averted - but that’s another trip, why am I talking about that?? Moving on, moving on…
This time we were well prepared so we drove all the way there without a major catastrophe. Our plan was to sing Disney songs all the way but we were waaaaaaaay too tired, so we let the cds do all the work. We got to POR and we were all excited because we still had plenty of time to get to AK and get on the safari before it got too late. But of course, with Brian’s wonderful Irish luck, we got the girl who was “earning her ears”, who Brian affectionately titled “The Rookie.” There was this heavily freckled CM (affectionately titled “Freckles”) who registered like three families while we still waited with “The Rookie”. It was painful… Fiiiiinally, we got our keys and a number to call to find out if our room was ready later… so YAY OFF TO AK!! :biggrin:
