Default Trip Report! Buck going out to Seattle to hang with Marc and Ed.

So I’m waiting here in ATL for a flight out to Seattle today (which is delayed of course) to hang with Marc (2 Fast Driving) and Ed (for the love of Music) and my wife of course!. She scheduled a dental continuating education course in Seattle last year so I thought I would go out for a couple of days if Marc and Ed were available and check out their systems. I’m gonna meet Marc and Ed this afternoon at Marc’s place and then my wife and I are going to get together with everyone at Ed’s tomorrow evening, should be a fun time checking out the Wilson Alexias not setup in a hotel room! I’ll post pictures of all of us when I get a minute, so be sure and check back. Looks like I’m gonna have a couple of sunny days out there which is always welcome news in Seattle, not to mention Atlanta is already starting to close schools for our anticipated 1/4” of snow we may or may not get here tomorrow. Unreal.

- Buck

Dang pacific time zone, was up at 6 AM this morning! I made it yesterday finally after a 2.5 hour delay in Atlanta due to our plane having a broken windshield. I guess they couldn't just call the Safelite glass people so they had to get us another ride. I drove straight to Marc's place outside of Seattle and met Ed over there. We a had a great time catching up and listening to about 3 hours worth of tunes. We did some interesting comparisons between vinyl, CD and a bunch of high quality FLAC vinyl rips I brought from home. Anyway, I'll post a couple of pictures today from last night so check back.

Buck, classic ATL weather call since all the school systems around here announced yesterday afternoon they'd shut down today - a bit of rain here this morning but by the time the buses should have been coming home this afternoon it was sunny, dry and about 40 degrees. Enjoy the weather, tunes, gear and good company!

Yeah, our girls were out of school today.......don't get me started. I know we have a hard time with winter weather but c'mon.

I just got back from Ed's house checking out his Wilson Alexias - D'agostino system, excellent stuff. Check back for pics.
