    Question for all the PF attendees......hoosier21 brought up a good point that most people probably have their music on a phone or digital device.

    That I hadn't considered. Now, the Carver Amazing rig, the MF A1008 is a DAC with a USB (B) input that I have hooked up to my laptop at some point.........

    The Bozak rig has the Cambridge streamer that has Apple air whatever and I've stream TIDAL from my phone so there is that....

    Rig # 3 though......if someone has a DAC or streaming type thing that they would like to bring that would probably be cool. To be honest, it's just not something I thought too much about as I listen to hard copy formats 99% of the time.

    I do have a decent selection of LP's, CD's and SACD's which you are more than welcome to peruse.......if you are bringing vinyl, also have a VPI vacuum cleaner if you want to clean some of your vinyl....

    If there is interest, I can bring my AURALiC G2 streamer. It has a built in DAC and I do subscribe to Quobuz. I still haven't even hooked it up yet, as my stereo/stereo room is under construction.

    Hotel booked. Crazy ready to tear up Troy's bushes....

    Or listen to music.....and steal TLW away from him.... :)

    One or two or the other.

    If any of y'all see a rather funny looking white boy strapped to a hood driving down I-95 in a Mocha/champagne colored Tahoe? No worries. That's just Trey.....we may not have room for him in the vehicle.

    I figure that we can pick the bugs out of his teeth when we get there....we can make a game out of it.

    Pretty sure that Tom stays at the Staybridge....it's a solid choice. Right off the interstate, less than 10 mins to my house...

    Hi, Caleb. Troy nailed it. That Staybridge is in great shape, is well appointed and recently renovated. Trey and I will be staying there. It's a little bit more than just your average "hotel room" and is very conveniently located to the 'fest.

    So the L200's and the R200's will be here tomorrow......

    Man, I'm REALLY hoping I win the L200's. All the PF raffles and I've never won DICK. This is my year. I ain't getting denied this year.

    Ok so, the raffle.....I'm thinking 20 bucks a shot. I know it's a little steep but we have some pretty darn good prizes and it's for two good causes. So bring some cash. Or TLW does Vinmo and Zillow or whatever that schit is.

    Ok kids....I'm going over the menu right now.

    I'm still on the fence for tomorrow night about doing tenderloins or a prime rib. Probably tenderloin. Perhaps grill some lobster tails as well........

    I'll have the brisket already done for Saturday, will smoke a couple of Boston Butts in the Big Green Egg Friday night, Fried Chicken...and all the sides for lunch on Saturday (about 1ish) and for Saturday night, I'm doing a Lowcountry Boil. Shrimp, smoked sausage, corn and potatoes.....maybe boil some lobster tails in there as well......plus all the side. Red Rice. Potato Salad, Cole Slaw......ALL homemade.

    I'm telling you, it's going to be worth it just for the food.......
