Ok, I am not trying to hijack the thread, it's just the one I've been reading a lot in lately, but I do have a question for everyone here.
I seem to be the only person I know (outside this forum) that loves home theater; I don't have any friends or family who have the same passion we all share. I know very little about HT, but compared to the people I am around, I seem to be more of the guru on HT
I've checked the forum and it appears there are threads of local meetings, but it still doesn't seem like these meetings are near where I live (Spokane, WA). I would love to get some friends who I could go to their house for once and enjoy a theater like experience and be able to talk to someone in person who knows as much or more on HT as I do.
So, does anyone here know if there is a thread on this forum where members can post roughly where about they live and if there are small group meetings? Obviously most of us have extremely high values in HT equipment and we may not want to give out personal information on our whereabouts, but I can't be alone in saying that I wish I had some friends that lived near me that I could call and talk to or go help them with their hookups or vice versa. Not even my wife has a passion for home theater and to her all this stuff is just "speakers" and "tv's" and "a waste of money".
Anyone in this same lonely boat as I am in?
