We made it home

Post by BrianT » Mon Sep 20, 2010 10:41 am

Just to let you all know that we made it home safely, to Ottawa, Canada.

We left Watershed 2 at 9:00am Sunday morning, and arrived home at 4:20am Monday morning.
We only stopped for Gas, Bathroom breaks (both at the same time) and a couple of sandwiches to go.
Total travel time 19hr's 20min's 3850km round trip.

We just want to say how much fun we had at CF10 this year, spending time with a great bunch of people.
Playing some tunes, eating great food and of course having a beverage or two.

Would really like to thank our roomies Tom (beemers) & Tom (Thuffman) could not think of a better pair of guy's to share a cabin with.

Also I would like to thank James, for letting me take the new ALS 6 to my cabin for a night, so I could listen to them on my own.
I will be VERY interested in hearing them again, after James and Bob have updated the crossovers.

We are sorry that we could not get around to say goodbye to everybody, Alex, Wayne, Jerry, Brock, Mike, Angelo Etc. next time guys & gal's.

Looking forward to CF11

Brian & Pat.

It was great to see you and your lovely lady. You have collected a fantastic rig that is not only gorgeous but sounds great also.
Glad to hear your safely home.

Glade you and Pat made it home safe! I had some of that coffee! Wow good stuff so you better bring me a can next year if I can wait that long! LOL Thanks again! Eddie!
Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

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

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!

The both of you ROCK!!! Glad to hear you made it home alright. I'd like to thank you for taking the time and the effort to bring such precious gear to the 'fest. It was enjoyed by many folks who would otherwise never get a chance to hear such a system, especially the TT. 34 lb. platter? My word.....

It was a pleasure seeing you both again. Take care 'till the next episode my friends......

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
