I was recently sent three pictures from Chuck Whitby of Chuck Whitby's World. Even though he has long since lost his Adventure Vision, these pictures define what the "Owner's Pride" page is all about. Don't you wish you could go back and get pictures like these?
Chuck was also kind enough to send in a little Adventure Vision story, so here for your reading pleasure, Chuck Whitby:
"Here's the story (not much of one tho'):
It was Christmas of '84 or '85 (forget which exactly, I was either 3, 4, or 5). My parents, having gotten my brother and I an Intellivision and Atari VCS the previous year, were looking to get us each a new electronic toy seeing how much use the Atari and Intv got. My brother got a Computron (little educational computer) and I received the Adventure Vision.
I remember playing the hell out of it, and one day the joystick just gave out, I remember it just moving about loosely, so I guess guess it disconnected from the board. Since we didn't know how to fix it, or even if it was worth fixing, sadly in the trash it went.
That was the last time I saw or even thought about the Adventure Vision until I started collecting classic games. I knew I had one, and I had pictures, the only thing left was to find them, which I finally did, proving to myself that I did own an Adventure Vision. Now just to find another one. 8*)
And that's my story of the Adventure Vision." - Chuck
Thank you Chuck for sending the pictures,
they are very, very much appreciated.
