Same - love this company and its partner-friendly management. I bought about 1/2 of my EPD shares in 2008-09 on the whooshes down to the $16-21 range. The remainder are converted DEP shares that I bought in the $15s. I sold half of the EPD at $34, to take out my initial investment in both entities. I didn't need the income so I then put the remaining stake in the DRIP and let it ride, where its value has since doubled again.
This one investment has more than made up for a lot of lessons I've learned the hard way. It has cured me of most of my early trading foibles, although I do admit to still being somewhat of a yield chaser, because sometimes they do end up working out... Sometimes.
