Life since CF15

Post by radioeng2 » Sat Oct 17, 2015 12:01 pm

What a great time we all had at CF15! Time for a thread on life since, while we wait for the next adventure to roll around this coming September. 8)

So I'm imagining life for Martin since..... :shock:











So as you get a bit older, friends get hitched and no matter where it is you have to go right? Well, this means a road trip, Martin style...

Image

But the wedding was great...the party afterwards even better....

Image

It gave Martin a chance to practice the fire extinguisher techniques before next years fest....

Image

But as luck would have it, there was a great concert in a nearby city that could be visited on the same trip....

Image

Man, it was rockin' right up to the encore...

Image

But, rooms in that town weren't too much, so spending the night a little earlier than planned was fine. Good thing Martin thought to bring along some tunes and a mini system....

Image

But it was all fine. Turned out to be a lot of chicks around that town. Though it seems the locals have some different beliefs when it comes to the young ones...Midnight was kinda weird...

Image

But it all turned into a pretty good party by the wee hours...

Image

Everybody got a souvinear to take back....and to help find the way back safely in the pre-dawn morning hours....

Image

Rock on you party animals!! \:D/

Got back to work, paid my taxes, Evil was sentenced, my amp and or preamp blew up.....in other words, same old, same old.

but on the other hand, I had an easy ride home, the house wasn't a wreck, I have work to do and money to earn, and am biding my time for CF2016.

Oh and I made my first omelet myself, had barbecue sauce on my steak, and the poking has continued on a regular basis.

George - somebody said it before - "Life is a beach"! You'll just have to get used to it.


Miserably cold here today, and a couple of flurries; I suppose that's to remind me to get ready to migrate. Down to 26 tonight, they say - Al's air arriving here the usual one day later.

I didn't need any reminders; a glance at the calendar is all that's required. Just a bit more yardwork, a final trip to my amazing chiropractor and a visit to Dave S. next week. Then load the Toyota, winterize the house, and I steer southward, 1475 miles.

James, if you're watching: what's the pool temperature?

In the on going saga of Martin's "Light My Fire" contest for the big show at CarverFest 2016.........we have a NEW candidate for next year's "CF Speakers Burning Down The House" episode...

Just think how a stack of 8 ThOOOOUUSand Watt amps could light the place up!

Yes...next up in our search for the ability to be the fastest to smoke those poor little drivers, we have the Pyle Audio PEXA8000!!! It is a "PROFESSIONAL" amp, we know, cause they tell us so!! And that power is clean and distortion FREEEEEEEE! We know, cause they tell us so!! So glad we don't have to wonder about that!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Pyle-Audio- ... 145wt_1062

It has a built in variable speed fan. I think that's to help circulate the smoke! :shock:

New meaning to "Gentlemen....Fire up your ampifiers"!!!
