Re: 04.02.07 -- Single Rider Meet Goes to Hell (and also Lost Bar)
Yes, I do exist. And thank you all for welcoming me.
A little background…
I got my first AP when Disney was one of my clients. In those days, DCA was still on the drawing boards, and the main online source of DL info was Al’s “Disneyland Information Guide,” posted weekly to alt.disney.disneyland. (Am I the only one who remembers Usenet before it was ruined by spam?)
I sometimes attended Sunday meets (back when they were a truly unpredictable assortment of people from all over the world), and made some friends there. I moved on to other non-DL-related jobs, but I renewed my AP for years.
However, one by one, my other AP friends moved out of the area. So, I stopped renewing my pass, and I haven’t had one for about five years. Anyway, last month I finally missed DL so much that I decided to spring for an AP again.
It’s nice to discover a group of people who -- like me -- have decided they’re going to have fun at DL even if they *can’t* talk their friends or family into going with them. Hopefully we’ll all make *more* friends in the process.
The highlight of my first day back? Drinking a mint julep in NOS while listening to Dixieland jazz!
