    That was a good day....

    I’m not sure. I got such a buzz on Friday night that I felt like c r a p on Saturday. Sort of ruined it for me. :)

    However I was amazed at his TV, and bought a 72” TV when I got back.

    Enjoy, and party on.

    If you were trying to hang with Russ, you got to pace yourself, ain't easy hanging with Lightman. I wish I could come hang with you all but the annual deer camp is in a couple of weeks have fun you all.

    I was just wondering what room/setup had the vinyl in it.

    While the Thorens was indeed there, it never even got hooked up.
    Digital streaming sources just make it too convenient for GTGs like this to cycle through many songs for one listener.
    I know at one point in Skip’s “main” room, I put together a playlist of some pretty obscure stuff in a matter of a minute or so and then kicked back and listened uninterrupted for about 30 minutes.

    It was great to see a few of you guys I already know as well as meeting a few Polkies for the first time. Skip does a great job hosting. Several setups to listen to, lots equipment to drool over (not literally). The brisket was fantastic and Marvin's "laboring in the rain" sausage and hot links were worth his effort in my humble opinion.
