    Chris, you brought to mind good memories of my childhood visiting the short-lived Sesame Place theme park in Irving, TX where I grew up. It was only open a few years, but it was featured in a odd Oak Ridge Boys video ( Glad you finally got to experience what you’d been missing all these years.

    It’s good to hear the Fleeples on this podcast and learn a bit about what they’re currently designing. Fleet is still a favorite of our group, and I’m always interested in what they’re creating. I look forward to playing Monster Truck Mayhem at the BGG.CON booth. See you in a few weeks!
