    I like it, but I'm guessing the thread won't last long anyway :) We seem to be going through them quite fast.

    "On the Road Again"--Now that would've been a good title for one of our threads. I love these pics of the four of them together. They seem to genuinely enjoy each others company. Hope their friendships last a long time. :)

    I'm guessing Sharna and Max won't have to travel with them when they just have two weekend shows? Bummer if so because I really wanted to have a Sharna and Max sighting at the show in Chicago!

    Maks with a little dancer at the studio they rehearsed at:

    What a thrill it must be for them to meet not only Marlie, but Maks and Sharna too.

    I like the thread title. It's really a dig at Julianne Hough!

    I would think they'd still have to. That would about 8-10 hours of training time which would be lost, especially for the harder weeks when they have more to do.

    Aww...
    That photo makes a lie of the "big, bad Maks" stereotype!

    Um I was hoping we would move away from that title. But OTOH we ARE literally phoning the votes in for them!

    True. I thought previously Max and Sharna had flown back to L.A. for the weekend, but it looks like they're continuing on to Portland with them. :)

    With all the special Disney animation show prep. They might have needed Maks and Sharna back to coordinate the choreography and teach Meryl and Charlie what to expect once they got back.

    I'm really happy that Meryl and Charlie have taken to posting things on social media. It's nice to see little glimpses of their off-ice, off-TV lives.

    Also, I hope you eat more, Charlie. :p

    I wouldn't count on it lasting. Maks seems like he's a bit of an instagram wh*re :p, so I think he's the main motivator behind all this. Once he's gone, I think the updates will go with him.

    Yes, I think so. She tweeted that she was starstruck. :)

    Looking at it again, I think you're right. There was a tweet on Charlie's twitter that said, "at my work right now, starstruck" so I assumed it was a server who took the pic.

    I saw that tweet too. Maybe Charlie took the pic with the server's phone? I don't know.

    It's probably one of the producers or production assistants

    I know it's dependent on the availability of the venues, but it sure would have made more sense to have the shows Albany, Manchester, Portland. They have a four hour plus drive tonight.

    Maybe Meryl & Charlie will take another puddle jumper to Portland instead of the bus. During the glory days of SOI, if there was more than 2 hours between destinations, all the skaters had the option of flying. That's probably not the case anymore, but M&C are incorporating propeller planes and private jets into their transportation. And maybe that's why Maks got a head start to their next destination - he wasn't enthused about that prop plane last week.

    for a second I thought you meant Portland, Oregon and I almost had a heart attack for Meryl and Charlie :lol: Now that would be a long drive!

    These days with TSA I'd guess that a four-hour bus ride is probably faster, and door-to-door unlike the plane flight.

    Private planes aren't subject to TSA. Basically, you just drive up to the plane and get on. And those small planes don't need a big runway, so you can use one of those rinky-dink local airports which are everywhere.

    Sounds interesting, going point-to-point instead of the traditional hub-and-spoke routing system. You can bypass all the riff raff. I don't have a problem with turboprops. They make more sense for short-hauls. Jets burn too much fuel.

    Here are Sharna and Maks enjoying a nice seafood dinner last night:

    Ummmm. I love New England sea food. :)

    It's probably easier for Sharna and Maks to do this hectic schedule having each other to lean on. Makes it more fun too. Similarly, I would think Meryl and Charlie have each other to lean on and commiserate with in terms of their schedule. They can lend each other moral support. Must be harder to do it like Evan and Anna did, on their own.

    I think I like Sharna better like that than all glammed up.

    I don't think Sharna ever takes a bad picture. I was touched by that tweet from a wife whose husband is back from the military. She said her husband is a huge Sharna/Charlie fan and they're attending the SOI show tonight. She's hoping they get to meet them and get an autograph. :)

    I think Sharna looks like a better match to Charlie with less glam. But I don't think production will let her get away with it.

    For most of the dancers I'm guessing Maks is the biggest draw! ;) I have seen him meet a gushing fan--he basically walked right by while I was taking with some SDSU ballroom team people at Ohio-one girl is like "Oh my God, I want to say hi but I'm scared!" I was like "He was really nice to my friend at Yankee who wanted a picture..." He was, too, insisting he take a picture WITH her, hugging her, etc. She went up to him and asked "Are you Maks from Dancing With the Stars?" He was like, "Nah, I just look like him. No, I'm kidding, I'm him." He gave her a hug and took a picture. Really, every interaction I've had, seen, or heard, the whole "bad boy" thing is an act and he's a total marshmallow who loves to meet fans. Yeah, he was kind of..um..intense back when he was competing but he's mellowed. I didn't think quite THIS much, but apparently Meryl just bringing out the lapdog in him completely...it's so cute how she's got him totally whipped.
