The Borderland Sparky pool... how long will he resist!!

The first rule of Borderland is that you don't talk about Borderland... LOL

How long do you think Sparky will last before buying another pinball?

24hrs, tops. He is gonna star on an episode of Hoarders.

The Borderland Sparky pool... how long will he resist!!

So... it seems that the boys in the Borderland group don't seem to believe that I can hold on from buying a pinball for the rest of the year. LOL... SO... I thought I would make a pool!!!

Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen!!! LOL

...I never confirmed that I was going. ;)

I am still on the fence about it. My last trip there 2 years ago was epic. I had the big van and it was a great time. Right down to the suicidal turkey in Ontario. LOL But now, I have no vehicle to my name. And going to Allentown with my company vehicle would not be too ethical. So I am less tempted by the experience again.
