    I will be there with most of my 2 channel rig and my friend Joel who is a LSAF virgin and a cable non-believer.

    I believe this is where all the mischief at LSAF starts. Many like to lay it on Russ, but, I'm thinking its the Eddie Haskell like shenanigans of this guy that starts most of it. :)

    In an unfortunate turn of events, I may not be making it during the day on Friday now. Maybe late afternoon but probably not the whole day as I originally planned. :(

    Do you need a ride? I should be getting there at or around the same time. A stop by the liquor store is in order for myself before the hotel.

    BTW, what in the hell is the Hotel's address? We need to know where in the F we are going!!??!!??
