Just woke up this morning and had a terrible dream :

My nightmare was about the meet :-O

In my dream, I showed up and there were some people already there....Of course I really don't know people by face, so I was standing on the back porch kind of mulling around with others...No radio's in sight :thumbsdown:

I went inside and there were a few people on the floor watching TV, a few on the couch, a few in the kitchen eating potato chips. NO RADIOS :nonono: They were all watching some children's show.

Finally, someone says "(such n such) is here and he has a _______ (<----fill in a fake named radio here) with him"

We all ran to go see it and as he was handing it over the wall into the yard some butter fingers let it hit the ground and BANG it shattered :annoyed: :sadno: :sad:

We walked back into the house SUPER depressed. Of course my wife is there primed and ready to kick me while I'm down (ad the voice of the wife from the Honeymooners here)

"So, we had to drive 400 miles to look at one broken radio huh"
"You can't take me on a decent vacation but we can come to see this huh"
"Gonna be lots of radios you've never seen before huh"

After that I walked back into the house where people were still watching the kids TV show and :weed: with a few other guys who were pouting :sad: : I then took my place on the couch |-)

So, with all that said....I'm begging you guys....PLEASE :-O Don't let this horrible nightmare come true :sadno: :sadno:

BRING RADIOS WITH YOU

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
I want to:

:dj-party: :dj-party:
:dj: :dj: :dj:
:stereo: :stereo: :stereo:
:gathering: :gathering: :gathering:

I'll be bringing a 1-piece box with SEVEN speakers.........my rarest box......

And then my second-rarest box......a 1-piece with only 2 speakers, that somehow manages to sound better than most of my 2-way or 3-way boxes......

I think a good way to maximize the variety of the boomboxes we have and keep the duplicates to a minimum we should post the boomboxes we plan on bringing...this will help those traveling to save some space as well... :-D ..I will start with the boomers I have:

JVC M90, M70, Kaboom - Sanyo 920, M9994k, C7 - Sony FH7, FH207 - Prosonic 9962 - Lasonic TRC 931 - Rising 20/20 - GE Blockbuster, 6035 - Aiwa 660 - Wards 3996 - Panasonic DT 680 - Sharp GF800...lets get as much variety as we can!!

A wish list is a good idea, if anybody else wants to see a certain box post it so those that have one can see about bringing it.

I'm already bringing the Korean version of the C-100F but I can bring a 5350, 7700 or Big Ben if nobody else is. Bringing all of those boxes is going to push my space to keep them safe for the drive so I'd rather not bring them all if anybody has one or two of those boxes.

I have a Studio 1, but 2 of the 6 speakers aren't working.......bad crossover maybe.......Yet it's STILL my best-sounding box :lol:
