No details have been worked out yet. Last year we carpooled and it worked out great. Met at a park and ride and smooth sailing across 94. I drove my spacious truck. We could put 5 in there but it would get snug. We will all talk and finalize plans closer to the big day.

We can work something out. I have a large sedan so we could always do two cars. It might make sense for a couple people to meet at my house or whatever.

@erniejade - tagged you here so you follow along since you made "the list".... I was only HALF joking when I said you should bring your DJ rig to setup on @eng-399 driveway . Powered 18's..... yes please

@AudioThesis - Skip not sure if you wanted to make the trip up again since you did Axpona, but figured I'd make you aware if nothing else. Russ and Ryan may be in attendance and I'm seeing if I can make it work with my schedule as well.

I had the unfortunate experience of parking next to the Mega Bus one night at the Indiana Michigan City rest area (which is actually really nice). The doors were open and folks were piling out. The stench rolling down the stairs of the bus could almost be seen like a green fog. The quality of the folks meandering their way to the facilities made me quickly lock my doors and beat a hasty retreat to get ahead of them. No thank you.

Heard good things about Amtrak. Never took it myself. The downside is freight trains have right-of-way, so you get sided for considerable time depending on where you are in the journey. Can make a 5 hour journey an 8 hour one real quick.

If we ever do a larger Chicagoland HT crawl, I'd consider splitting a party bus among the guests. Probably not cost beneficial for a 600 mile round trip however.

My work schedule has me working every other weekend. I anticipate that will change, I just don't know when.

I think a lot of guys use tapatalk I use it 90 percent of the time which is why I haven't been online a lot the last few days besides working a few double shifts at work. Tapatalk is easy to post pictures since it's all on your phone I get lazy sometimes and don't pull my laptop out...

This week I'll be finishing up Rob's 15.5 cubic ft slot ported boxes tunes at 13hz and get to work on my mains. Soon as i hand his box over I'll get a thread going. My three baffles are getting cnc'ed by my buddy Mike C that lives 15 mins away I'm so excited check out his machine in the video below.
