    Wanted all to know so they can make/break plans. :)
    I recall there were several others interested last time who couldn't be there.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Thank you very much guys. Been buried in work and life. :#

    Did meet two weeks ago with a nice group in Birmingham from the Aging Alabama Audiophiles facebook (private) group. :-)
    One of them is going to Axpona this year. His new pride and joy is a pair of Tekton Moabs he's invited the GF and I to hear sometime. :*

    OH MY GOSH. I completely forgot about this. I've been out of the loop on audio and this is what I get. ;)

    I even managed to convince my parents to let me drive down myself in November. Ugh.

    I'll do some reading on what all was there, and will do my best to be there next year. :)

    Did anyone else go?

    Wait a sec, there's only one thing that could have caused this...

    ...Micah's got a GIRLFRIEND!!!!

    Better... I got a car! Sort of. It's my parents, not mine. Very broken Volvo that isn't worth fixing, unfortunately. It has almost 300k miles. :)

    Between saving for a better car and playing guitar, audio hasn't gotten much time, especially since I can't really afford to upgrade any farther. :)
