Like most, I didn't get into pins until I was older and played a Getaway that was at a local bowling alley and allowed smoking which was great for a 18+ year old. Played there for about 5 years regularly until I got more involved with girls, etc. Years later March of 2011 I was bored and was thinking about the old days and pins. Started research: Came home with a Getaway May of 2011. Now up to 4 and slowly growing now that I got my basement done.
I did get some vids afterwards, but pins are my main passion. I do see how and why vids are the pinball gateway drug.
