I certainly can use all the help I can get! Particularly on these long distance trips. It would make it alot easier to jockey two vehicles if there were two drivers (one for small trips, the other the large truck) - I had to keep getting taxis in between the two. I lost two days onsite in Baltimore - the first day I got caught up in the closure of all lanes of I-695 due to a fatality accident. I sat in traffic for 5 hours - all I needed was a tool at Harbor Freight in the other end of town. This was a fatality accident so I won't complain further about the lost day, but point being, this is the type of thing that can happen, The second day lost was a result of miscommunication at the college where some of the security staff were unaware of my presence, repeatedly stopping the work and reaching for walkie talkies. It would have been better if one person were onsite to handle these matters while the other goes to fetch things. I had to rent two vehicles, truck and minivan as the side roads around Baltimore can be a nightmare for a 26' box. Lost track of how many taxi rides but this did teach me the roads in the area, to see how the cabbies do it. Thanks also to Jem, Brad, and BarthChris for mentioning that they could have helped if they had known I was in the area. I never stopped to think that everyone who reads these posts are certainly spread all over the globe. I attached a couple of pictures of the console which is now serving as house stereo until I can get the projector assembled. I just connect my laptop to the patchbay and launch Soundcloud. The Hafler amplifier is not that powerful but it sounds fine with the four studio monitors that were fetched from behind the dome. As for the wife, I am blessed with a woman who supports me. Life is good! p.s. check out the ancient 20-bit ADAT. I did not make it home on time, I made it as far as Holbrook, AZ on straight shot from MD and that was just plain nuts.
