7-3-2010. i got all 50 receivers up and on line today,a few buddies brought in more speakers for sound, ready for the moment......

7-4-2010, 12:35pm, i woke up and went into my living room, and started lighting
up the stacks, 5 total, with 10 receivers in each stack,
12:50pm, all receivers are on and playing, had to tune each receiver to its sweet spot, this was a task that took me and my buddy 4 hours..
4:50pm, since it was the forth of july i decided to have some fun, so i lit the whole stack up and spun the master control,

5:30pm, the first sign of trouble, i felt dust falling on my head from someware.
i soon discoverd i was shaking my trailer apart, literaly, the main seem cracked holding the two sections together.

i really should have stopped here..

6:00 pm,
heat was really becoming an issue, it was 82 degrees outside and raining, with no air conditioning the tempature in my living room soared to 112 f with all of the equipment on and running.

7:15, funny smells coming from the walls, i felt the wall and it was hot, so hot it burned my hand,

7:16 pm, this is when shit started to hit the fan, me, billy and heath were franticly turning everything off and disconecting the gear, the living room started filling with smoke...

7:17 pm, my house was on fire. the voltage was just too much for the old wiring to put up with, the living room wall was burning from the inside.
i ran to get a crowbar, and stumbled over a pair of ar-3ax speakers, and hit the floor. it hurt.

7:18pm, i got the crowbar and ripped up the wall to get to the fire, after a 30 second time that felt like a year, i got the fire out.

by 7:30 the party was over, the electrical system in my house is shot, it arked threw the wall and blew out the main load box, burning all of the switches. lights out.

lucky me i saved my house and my gear, and everyone elses gear.

aside from a destroyed living room, and a spraind foot, a broken camera, and alot of shame, im ok.

sorry guys, no pics yet, have to wait till i get a new camera.
and im using my buddys computer to write this, im sleeping at his house untill i have power again, so sorry for the long wait for part 3..

shock and awe, what a ride!!

"Well ok whatever makes you happy but from your own words apparently thats the only one who is. Atleast all that gear will help your double wide in a tornadobanana.gif "
