    Loaded and ready. This dst is crazy. Getting light at 8AM. Hard to say early start when the buttcrack of dawn is noon. Lol Ceptorman, I’ll be down there noon/ish. You gonna be around? Will call when I get close.

    Hi all We got the Scalas into this little w/o destroying the car or speakers. We were smart and made a table level to the cargo area, so we could get them lined up. No wiggle room and would only go in perfectly straight. Murphy loves a plan and only minimumly interfered. Now, to get them home. Hope all in the storm affected are OK. Obviously, we didn’t make the beach. Too bad for everyone. Leaving out tomorrow. Going to try to take 3days instead of30hours. That about killed me.

    Hunker down @Tarheel stay safe we're winging it... but looks like the NC leg of the trip may get terminated. Particularly the beach. I'm about ready to get under way. May not get passed LasCruces. I am invited to dine and overnight. Not much of a first day on the road. Not that I don't have 3 days... but damn... 600 miles a day ain't getting anywhere. It's only 30hrs driving time. It gonna take a shoe horn to get the Scalas in this car w/o tearing stuff up. They will fit. With an inch or two to spare. I thought about packing a bag . Dashed that. Grocery bags.. No room for anything hard or of size. No i-phone... y'all will be spared of me for a little.

    blame that on "Dr" Spock judicious discipline breeds respect there is also a certain amt of blatant consumerism in the mix. We wore hand me downs and didn't need an i-phone

    I blame it on needing two incomes to raise a family.

    My wife is a teacher. What I see happening down here. The curriculum changes every other year... looking for instant gratification. Never giving any system a chance to work. They prolly all work ... given a chance. The teachers are told what, when and how... My wife got dinged for teaching the kids to read an analog clock and has to justify taking the kids to learn how to swim. What I see, is pressure from state and federal. And all the money they provide... 1/3 goes to showing where [precisely] the other 2/3 went. they are grooming the kids to rely on computers for learning/teaching I feel kids should be kept away from computers until they are 14 years old. I will stop my rant right there... I feel a big 'un coming on

    Our trip to the beach may come to "Are you open?... if so, we are coming" the area would seem to be in the Bull'sEye of the "cone of uncertainty" [error]

    they are in Elkhart IN... well, Bristol Sitting at my sister's. If the storm hits where and as hard as they predict... the party may be in Indiana. We'll have a nice stereo to listen to... lol

    JohnJ I enjoy a dark Heineken at room temp. Talked to sis #2 in IN... Getting sis #3 to IN is on the table. Partying down in Indiana is not something you hear of. I almost said "often".... but, it is Indiana. lol We will have fun no matter where. The last time we were together was at our mom's funeral. People were waiving our behavior off due to that. Nah. You can't take us anywhere. We know how to behave. Just choose not to. At our age [that's our excuse now] we don't care.

    after Iniki, we had to use the beach shower to bathe. Flushing the toilet with water from the swimming pool at the apt complex. ...if you wanted something to drink... most likely a warm Bud.. Ewww American beer does not taste good warm.

    My luck, we will have a 2nd row seat... The beach is across the street... The place we got is 6 or 7 inches higher. lol there is a reason they discount at this time of year. If it was up to me, we would have had the get together in HI. Yeah... a chance of weather. Less than the southeast quadrant of the mainland. The ocean is much nicer.. mo' bettah I am anxious to hear these speakers. It's been near 7 months. I have a couple hobbies. One is gardening and growing 5 gallon houseplants from those $1 walmart starts. I [can] have quite a bit of patience. We had a SWAT situation a block away [if it happens in town, it's a block away]. Someone is in sheep dip. Armored car, UH-60...20 vehicles or more. This started at 4AM with a bunch of travelers getting chased into town. I heard the dogs and was out shining my flashlight around... Wife called me 5 min after she left the house to tell me something was going on. BorderPatrol... Parked on 3 sides of a house. Then I saw an agent on horseback cruising the block... I figured kinda ... it took a twist. The group gathered at a place that was a suspected meth lab. glad to see the lab go down. and the "travel agency"... another form of border pirates. that was the excitement today. When - -it happens we get a show. Last SWAT thing involved Crackhead Ray. Ya know this is a dimass story... He stole a tractor. Bashed a house and then stole guns and food. This is a small community. Everyone knows everyone... Crackhead Ray didn't figure that into the plan... we suspect he had help with the plan... lol

    Map? I can just about do the trip to IN in my sleep. I used to run from Nogales to Alsip IL every 8 days. I have to kill some time en route or I will get to my sister's at an odd hour... 2 or 3AM. "Oh, come on in Bill" ... uh no this is the one with the conceal carry permit. Bill, when you headed back to Indy? I'll be in Elkhart Wed. I think. Depends on how long I visit in LC. I have a lot more flexibility on the return.

    I have a plan for how/where to put them... and for an alternate building, too. And then we get furniture. lol this room is long and narrow or wide and shallow. 25 X 12. Am gonna try them on the long wall, about 4 feet from the corners.... or they will be getting banged by doors. The alternate is a near field application, in the doghouse/man cave
