"To Do" list

Our adventures weren't all unorganized mayhem. Remember, film was a little pricey back in the day and what could have easily been done by a digital camera had to be done with some form of order to save money on film. Chief and I had ongoing lists of things we thought were important to preserve.
The night after every adventure we'd have our pics developed at the Walgreen's one hour photo across the street from Universal. So, we'd drop off the rolls, go home and drink beer, and then go back and collect our hard copy analog shots. The next day we would go to our shitty jobs and spend hours looking for other details we wanted pics of. Our list (an early version below) would change as we deleted the shots we'd covered from the text file.

This version is from pretty early on and features many set pieces and figures that didn't involve being behind the scenes. They were all just a simple jump from our ride vehicle.






It's fun to look back and see that we did a kick ass job of taking care of this laundry list of future goodness:)

  1. Did you guys ever leave a beer in the fridge? That would have been so cool.

  2. Nope. There was a black rubber penis in there. See a post we made in may 2009. Serious:)

  3. I've been looking at this document for a few days now and there's just something about it I really like. Maybe it's the insight that shows you guys weren't just reckless kids screwing around and had this well thought out plan... or maybe it's the parchment-like tattered, blood-stained paper that makes me think it might be a historical artifact on par with the two slabs of the ten commandments. Whatever it is, I really like this list.

  4. I just discovered this site last night... can I say that I hate you guys for making me stay up until 2am?! I read EVERY post all the way back to the beginning. I actually dreamed about Horizons last night. I'm at work right now, but I have a strange feeling I'm not going to get a lot done today if I keep your blog open in a tab. Thanks so much!

  5. Just have to say you guys have an amazing blog! Working at EPCOT currently, I am hard pressed to find anyone who not only remembers one of the best rides to have graced EPCOT but documented the elusive behind-the-scenes inter workings. Thank you for sharing with the rest of us!
