    Okay, y'all, this doesn't happen very often, but it looks like I am going to have the house to myself the weekend of Feb 24-26th, 2006! So, I can't think of anything better to do than to make some noise with by bottom-dwelling buds. :D

    I am up for having people stop by any time from Friday night through Sunday afternoon. Talking to some folks, it seems like Friday night is better for some, while Saturday night is better for others. I can do both. Heck, I live here! :p My house is no castle (and is in fact quite meager, relative to my bass gear collection), and I guarantee it to be very cluttered with kids toys, etc. But, there is ample room for people to crash, and I would welcome people to do so. Especially people who like single malt scotch. ;)

    So, if you can make it, please respond to this thread and let me know. Please also tell me when you hope to be here, and whether or not you will be staying over.

    The password (passphrase, really) to get in is "All hail the mighty Sadowsky SA200, I do not doubt its virtues!" :p

    Hope to see lots of you later this month!

    Tom.

    I'm tentatively in. Trying to work it out with my wife based on some family plans we're also trying to work in this month, which I hope will fall on either this weekend or next, leaving the 24th open. We'll see. If I'm able to come, I'll definitely be bringing my Marilyn, and at least one other bass.

    I'll be there Friday evening for sure. I have a gig Saturday, so probably won't be able to make it then. Can't wait to meet everyone that makes it! Yea verily, I have seen the magic that is the SA200! Tom and I also have another bout of GAS coming simultaneously, but that's for later!

    Ooooo man, I'd love to come. I'd be tentative at best, given all my family stuff, I'm getting my own place & dont know if I'll be able to make it.

    BTW, if my family plans conflict, I might actually take a day off work and come on Friday if I can cram it in that way. FWIW, anyway.

    So we'd take 80/90 to 53 and your place is before we get to Port Clinton?

    I'll try to make it. Friday is probably better for me, too, assuming nothing pops up. Obviously, I don't need to be bringing any amps, but i might drag my modded Marcus Miller (I'll be real interested to see how it stacks up agains cheeze's DJ4, as they'be both got the same vibe going, ash jazz with Aeros.) and maybe my Tacoma, if anyone is interested. I could bring my BBE/QSC rig too, but I think Tom's got the amp thing covered.

    Actually, Pat and I both have DJ4's (I have Pat's old one, and Pat now has Pat's old old one :p). I also have a Thunderchief, but mine is the all-mahogany version, so it could be cool to hear the differences between the two!

    I am just barely south of the Turnpike, and almost right off Rt. 53. Anyone can PM me for directions. It is very easy to find.

    Sounds like a plan. What preamp does your Tacoma have in it? I've got mine strung with some Nylon Tapewounds right now.

    Fishman Prefix. The strings are stock, and appear to be phosphor-bronze.

    I'm a tentative yes as well...Vic would most likely be my ride, so if he goes, I'll be there. I don't have many fun toys, but I'll bring something or other.

    DUDE!!! I'm in too!!!!!
    Jason, buzz me (same with you ken) and we'll swing on down together!!
    My Fodera Garrison will be there as well as a six pack (or 4) of Bass Ale!!!!! (Bass like the fish, not Bass like the guitar-get it?!?!?).

    Tom I'm sure you have an AI Focus 1 (series 3) lying around don't ya?? If not, I could bring it with me. It's a pain, but I'm sure I could find room!!;)

    Awesome! Yes, it will be nice to get to finally meet you, Mike, but pardon me for being equally excited about the Bass Ale! :D

    Actually, I do not own an AI amp/head, so if you could bring one, that would be killer! Be sure to lift with the legs, though, and not the back! Oh wait, I thought I was talking to Ken there for a moment. :bag: :p
