Santa bring you a new drone?  Maybe we can dig up some current footage of the construction site.  I suspect we will see some footage soon although I wouldn't think there was much to look at now, but I could be wrong.
Have a great time, Hurts donuts, Glazed coated with blueberry strusel are worth the stop.  I also think its the cheapest donut there.   Enjoy your day!

No drone.. LOL....

I have talked to a couple of my buddies down there that do the helicopters and requested pictures if they get out and go that way... (nothing yet >:().      LOL

Mmm... I like a good glazed donut, or maybe a maple long john... :)

I have been thinking about booking a room at the Grand Country so we can take the kid to their indoor water park.  Is it work the $130 they want?  Other than that, might get a cheap room with KD or somewhere else.  Aside from those shows, what other indoor things are there to do?  What about that Fritz deal?  Just wanting a cheap trip.

Speaking of hotels with indoor water parks, I forgot about Castle Rock and Welk.  How do their water parks compare to Grand Country?  I have never been to any of them.

Grand country has 36 holes indoor golf by the restaurant inn main building....
the other building has the indoor go-carts,
blacklight gold,
laser tag,
lots of arcade games,
3D "ride" (more like a video game)

everything costs money except you get free water park pass with room rental..

If you stay somewhere else you can pay to get in waterpark, BUT i dont know what that fee is..

Maybe you can check out on what's going on with the remodeling at the Cascades Inn and what's going on with the
destruction of the old Ramada Inn by Dick Clark's American Bandstand Theater?

 Made my trip,  was good to see a couple of my favorite shows in town...  as you all know I am friends with and really like their show, The Haygoods.  It was good to see them all after there winter break..  was able to work in the afternooon show at Grand country, always a good time with that group too...

Pictures..?? >:( >:(

Took several pics, and when I got home I have a "Corrupted" disc message!!  So NO pics..... >:( >:(.

Here is what I saw...
The new pool at The tracks next to Hughes, NO progress..  Bad weather
The New ride at the other Tracks next to Tanger- No noticable progree there.. They are saving the old track for sure as we discussed.
The Wonderworks they have the one Elevator shaft done, working on a second now, not much else.
Still working on the interior of THE Starlite for the new National Enquirers museum, not a lot of progress there.
Ramada Inn--  The Main building is leveled and gone, the other two buildings have been gutted and and look like will come down soon. Wont take long there are 3 or 4 big pieces of equipment, and these guys look like they are being serious about it!!!!  LOL   This is really going to chnage the way that area looks.. Ramada has been there a long time...

Be back in 4 weeks, try to get updated pics then with a "good" disc,,,, ::)

We are headed up tomorrow and are going to the Stampede.  While watching the news for the last week or so about every other commercial is theirs so I finally gave in.  In fact, 2 commercials just played on the TV in the time it took me to post this.  They must be spending a fortune in advertising.

Never been,,   I think you get a "big" 5.00 discount if you have SDC season passes.
