Or are just not bringing your wifes'? :-k I am hoping I have room for my 5 amps somewhere in the trunk. (75, two 55X's, a 45 (birthday present just bought for my son that is being refreshed at Rolland's) and an 806 (another recent purchase)

That just about sums it up for me. Oh yeah, maybe room for an MP3 I can carry in my pocket. :rolleyes:
We are renting a 15 passenger van and taking out all but one row of seats.
Some cool Carver stuff!

My intentions are to bring:

Tube Amps
C-16
Plats
something for the front end

I still don't know what days I will have available which makes it damn difficult to plan.

just got a "steal" on a Blaupunkt Velocity 2GO 6.

If I come in my old truck, I will bring that. The truck is old, so if I have to come on my bike, I am sure you guys will invite me over to share your stuff.

IF I am able to make it down, I will be bringing my 600~2, the SD/a 490t and my Yamaha PX-3 turntable. I may try to bring my Polk LSi-15's as well, but only if I can hear them played on some tubes!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

I was thinking about making a kegwoofer but that would be more for the bottom end.

I am still thinking about what speakers to bring! Don't know if I want to bring the Walsh 5 MK3's with me this year or some thing else!

I'm hoping to bring down.

VPI Classic Turntable (if it ever shows up, been on order for 5 weeks)
Sunfire Classic Control Centre with phono section.
Pair Bob's 180 Mono Block Amps, with Shuguang Treasure Black bottle Tubes
And just for thuffman03 a pair of B&W 703 speakers

Looks like I am going to have fun at the US/Canada border.
