Just got through spending a while with Bruce (Tour2ma) as he passed through Knoxville. He was supposed to come by the house last night but couldn't get his butt out of Houston fast enough so he stayed in Chattanooga last night (with my directions to some relatively cheap accommodations). My office is a couple hundred yards from I-40 so he pulled off and we grabbed a cup of coffee and visited for a few. I finally got my Seatrain CD (promised at the SC Polkfest) and a bonus Hamilton Loomis CD. Listened to a few tracks in the car before he had to hit the road. He's off to Roanoke to pick up some obscure gear he found on e-bay. I tried to get him to go by Uptown Audio (A wonderful high-end audio store) there in town...but it was all NEW stuff and has little interest to him.
You guys in the NE beware...he is headed up I-81 as I type. There are lots of stops on the itinerary as I understand. Dorokusai and BlueMDpicker (and others) were mentioned as possible targets...you've been warned. :D
