Why have a "Train of Thought" at all?

How about a "Motor Home of Memories" or a "Dog Sled of Day Dreams"?

Best Regards,

Terry,

Maybe you can camp near me, and that way the skeeters will have a clear choice in where to go for a night time meal!

I had a breakthrough today in smoothing the response on my in-wall horns. I would like to show them off, but at 7.5' long transporting might require too much ambition on my part. On the other hand they are already as ugly as they will likely get-so no special packing would be needed.

Howard, I'm afraid that I'm too old to vie for the favor of young female Mosquitoes. They're all yours!

That's too cool!
If you had an old house with "Balloon" Construction, you could really get some bass!

A few questions:

What kinda beer do you all like?


Howard

edited to the not necessarily most pertinent, but as yet unaddressed question:

cold is probably the only thing we could "all" agree on - well, that and no lite beer - oxymoron really

if importing from your side, probably anything Samuel Adams - there are tons of great local craft / micro-brews Jeff , Scott and Cal would be the experts that immediately come to mind

not that I'm trying to imply .....

of course, even for those not driving home nightly, moderation is recommended


with Scott and Cal attending, whom am I trying to kid

and can we make this a T-shirt manditory not optional event - there's a lot to love about those two, but time and place, boys

Wow Chris:
I did not realize the site of two 1/2 naked men laughing and having fun made you feel uncomfortable.
Oh well you will get over it.
Men without shirts will likely show up for sure now. Although we did promise not to try and burn any stone this year.
I am sure we can come up with a new experiment of some sort.
Hey Cal hold my beer, Watch this, it will be really cool.............

I've got my speakers done. MDF finish, but we'll see how they sound

Is anyone bring a sub? I could use bass support on my speakers, but not sure what to do. Thought about bring two large subs and a minidsp. Or a single 8" in a very small sealed box that can be wired up to the high level inputs and use the plate amp to adjust the XO. I'll bring this if anyone else would like it used with any other speakers. I think my big subs would be much to annoying, but really are how my speakers are voiced.

If there's another sub there that can be implemented, that would work too. I'll just run my speaker full range, I just need a little filler below 80hz.

My thoughts exactly.

You'd think he'd embrace that as his age.

Maybe you did. I'm bringing two torches this year. One for each.

What could possibly go wrong?
