Auditory Hallucinations

We are music lovers. Michael is an audiophile. I know people SAY they care about sound quality and are particular about the set up they have for listening to sounds BUT seriously this man is very particular and to make matters worse he can hear a gnat fart at 30 paces. This picture was taken less than a week after we bought the 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8.

Torn down to the wires.

From his old Chevy Cavalier with a backseat of KICKER speakers to a Chrysler New Yorker Fifth Avenue Edition in GOLD with 32 (THIRTY TWO) speakers – he has been into sound since before we met. It isn’t a shock that with every new vehicle there is an immediate audio upgrade.

Which makes me wonder what is coming with the new RV? He is chatting with David at Outside Our Bubble and getting ideas for the new coach and this website. It is fun to hear Michael so excited about this stuff but when he is telling me about all of the new audio/visual ideas I hear Charlie Brown’s teacher going on and on with the soundtrack of “Money” by Pink Floyd.

Ah well — at least I can listen to the new stuff from Brooke Magalis and Booze Monkey in style.



In the Valley … like fer sure

Not going to post too much right now – just letting you know that we are in the Shenandoah Valley and it is beautiful. I have been on both sides of the valley the upper rim — but never to Luray and down in the middle. I want to come back in May when Spring actually arrives. = )

We are staying at a wonderful campground called Country Waye. Gorgeous views!!

Last night we spent a night out listening to local musicians and eating some of the best BBQ I have ever had at Cristina’s Cafe.

The trip up was flawless – except I forgot to turn the water heater back on – so I had a cold shower this a.m. But everything else was wonderful. Now we may never stay put on the weekends. = )

Thanks to the gals at Cristina’s for taking such great care of us, Slide & MJ for everything, Kudos to Christian – the 15 year old guitar wielding prodigy, Ashley for the beautiful voice, J for making it out when he was tired and sore and just really needed SLEEP – you are still my nemesis tho’ MWA, and nice to meet cha Chris. We will have to get back up here more often.

Today – lots more planned – and this time I won’t forget my camera.
