    Had a blast hanging out with Robin & Martijn in Houston. Toured NASA courtesy of Blake (BD_DESIGNS) and hung out @ Keith's (gandalfnet) house and enjoyed some crawfish and Moonshine.

    Robin and Martin are currently with long time Pinsider pinball-is-great on a Louisiana nature tour. We are hoping they do not get lost in the swamp!!!

    Next stop for them tonight is ... New Orleans, where they claim they plan to rest up!!!

    Hahahahahaa

    #104 3 years ago

    I know right!!! Pav and I have been chuckling about that idea since yesterday.

    #105 3 years ago

    Yeah, NOLA is famous for getting rest. LOLOLOL But y'all will need to find rest soon. Wish I could see y'all. Enjoy the states!

    #106 3 years ago

    Talk about the wrong stuff on the flight deck...

    #107 3 years ago

    Hey Robin,

    It's gonna take days for you to paddle all the way down to New Orleans!

    excellent gator hunting boat

    Quoted from labnip:

    you mean for the gator to hunt Robin?

    I told him to feed the gators marshmallows. Lets see if he comes back with both hands.

    Pinside Pop Quiz, 29-Mar-2016

    Which of these statements does not accurately describe the below picture:
    A.) Robin is hoping the 6 ft long alligator on the bank will self-moderate his actions.
    B.) Martijn is wondering how he ended up in this predicament being in a canoe in a south Louisiana swamp face-to-face with a gator.
    C.) Pinball-is-great is more worried about the 11 ft gator that is now submerged in the water and we didn't know where he was at.
    D.) Little did we know that the big gator told the other gator to stay up on the bank to distract us, while he sneaks up from the side.
    E.) The gator on the bank saw Pinside on the front of Robin's shirt, and decided that since gators "lurk" and don't "troll", that Robin was not planning to deactivate or ban him.
    .

    .
    Answer: B, Martijn knows exactly how he got into this mess.

    #112 3 years ago

    The answer is actually F.) This picture would make a great alternative backglass for a Bally Nip-It.

    #115 3 years ago

    Answer is most likely G) With Robin and Martijn currently digesting in an alligator's stomach, Pinside is no longer a family-friendly site.

    #116 3 years ago
    Quoted from beelzeboob:

    Answer is most likely G) With Robin and Martijn currently digesting in an alligator's stomach, Pinside is no longer a family-friendly site.

    Would Pinside then be considered pet friendly?

    Giant Alligators need hugs too!

    We will tell his wife and kids that he fought as a lion, but they were in the majority.

    TigerLaw, have you taken them to Bourban Street yet or done a airboat ride?

    #119 3 years ago
    Quoted from zr11990:

    TigerLaw, have you taken them to Bourban Street yet or done a airboat ride?

    We did take them to Bourbon. They prefer Frenchman Street, better music and what not. Been a really fun trip, we hit up PinChurch tonight and had a great time.

    #120 3 years ago

    I wish I could have been there. They and you and your wife are really good people

    Thanks for having us over. Very cool game room! PavBall wants a TOTAN now. LOL

    #124 3 years ago

    Looks like y'all have done a great job taking care of Robin & Martijn over there in Louisiana! Hope everyone has had a fun visit all-around!

    TigerLaw, you and Pav need to come pay us Houston gang a visit sometime soon! No need to wait until the Houston show!! Oh, and I've always got a spot reserved for y'all if you ever want a NASA tour!

    #125 3 years ago

    Now that is what I would call an EPIC visit to the USA!!!

    The NASA tour is a must! Quite possibly the best experience of the entire "Texas" portion of the trip!

    Heck yea, we had a blast all week. Pav and I will plan a trip to Houston sometime in the next couple months, because you are right HAAG is waaaay to far away!

    Bring it!! We've got a guest room with y'alls name on it. Would be warm enough for pool weather by then. I'll tell Jacqui to be nice.

    I have one that I would consider selling at $8500. It has been restored and has a beautiful CCd PF. If I am to get a TBL something has gotta go

    Back home in the Netherlands!

    Texas and Louisiana were great. Thanks to our hosts Xerico and TigerLaw for the great two weeks, you guys rock!

    Also many thanks to everyone who opened up their gamerooms for us along the route. Absolutely impressive stuff we've seen and played! Well maintained games, pins modded to the teeth and hospitality with a capital H.

    And finally thank to all those who came by the Pinside booth at TPF to tell us how they enjoy Pinside (and for those who had cool feature suggestions). Gotta take some time to digest it all.

    I might post all the trip photos somewhere online, but have to zift through them first to censor out the worst.

    #139 3 years ago

    Awesome, Robin.
    Now get some much needed rest.

    #140 3 years ago

    Great having you both in the States. Please come back soon.

    LOL, post the one of PavBall trying to hop out of the video. That one is hysterical.
