Not my idea of fun, good for them if they like it. I've tried 4 parks in one day and that wasn't much fun because you waste so much time in transit from one park to the next.

This past April was also another 9 am to 11 pm operating day -- I got to Pirates right at 11:01 and still had BTMRR and Splash...so I needed another 30 minutes or so.

I think the fastest official time was 16 hour operating day.
Yeah. I’m gonna have to really look at the rules to make sure I don’t break any.

How about if Brian and I just cheer you in from the sidelines?

I cannot imagine how upset my stomach would be from all that up/down/round.

Depends. Are y’all gonna wear t shirts that say “Team Mindy” in pink glitter?

Years ago, I did an "Iron Butt" trip on my Harley. This reminds me of that...very defined rules, documentation required, brutal day. Though I was kind of proud of it at the time, all I got for all the pain was the opportunity to pay for a patch.

I understand the adrenaline rush, the pushing yourself, the sense of achievement...but I think I've hit the age where the pain isn't worth it. That said, I'll happily enjoy watching others do it.
