I firstly have to apologize for my lack of posts, both on the blog and on the podcast. I think it would be an understatement for me to simply say that life has gotten busy. Between a 5 month old who is now teething, and a 3 year old who has patiently waited for daddy to complete her new swing set, there has been little free time to write and record a new podcast. So I’m trying something new. Instead of my daily 5AM trip to the gym, this week I’m going to try and record an episode and hopefully be able to edit it down during breaks, in order to get it out sooner rather then later. So if I sound a little groggy still, that’s the reason. So let’s get to the reason we’re all listening.
Today’s memory will be one that was requested quite a while ago, and by a few people. Today, we’re going to take a ride on Living With The Land. I have received requests from Dan, Shayne, and Daniel to relive this memory. To make it up to all of you for the delay, I’m going to actually include two memories in one.
Memory one will be from November 2003, and is in Stereo only. Now if you think about it, in 2003 they were still being narrated by a live Cast Member. It’s a rainy day, and my family and I are enjoying a day at the Parks. We’ve been waiting for a while in the queue, and this is where we’ll join the memory. We’re standing in the loading area, and another boat is just pulling away, then it’ll be our turn. You’ll hear my dad, brother and sister all laughing because my dad and I are pretty cramped in the front seat with a couple other people. Anyways, the boat pulls away and the ride begins.
Memory two is from May 2007 and is in Binaural. The recording again begins as we’re waiting to board. It’s flower and garden festival time at Epcot, and Traci and I are waiting to board with her parents. It’s early in the morning, and you’ll hear us discussing what we want to do or see in Epcot today as we look over the brochures. Soon, our Cast Memberless boat arrives, we board into our row and we’re off.
