Are there hotels in the area? Can we have a few listening sessions? Take a tour? Do some of the naughty things mentioned here? Oh wait. We'll never get invited back and getting arrested in a country other than my own might be bad. Oh, what the hell. The jails must be better than Mexico's!

Speaking of flying in, just where is your nearest airport and how far is it from where you live?

Nearest large airport is Toronto.
If you want to have a "look" at the area go to http://maps.google.com/maps and enter "Dwight Ontario" in the search box. Use the scale at the left to zoom in and out.

On the right hand side of the page hit "satellite" to get aerial mapping and see just how many trees there are .

To the right of "Maps" click on local search and then enter "hotels" that will bring up locations and links.

I'm sure Amie will have a lot better info but at least this gives you some idea of the geography.

If all else fails drive to Burlington Ontario, look for an Altima and I'll drive you there .

Assuming my work schedule allows - I'll be there.

Hmm... have to set up a shuttle service between Pearson Airport and Dwight... maybe something like that '66 Fairlane Wagon... er, wait, never mind.

Geez, can you imagine the "BYO whatever" stuff that would come with everyone from here? All your wacky beer, cheeses, doves/pigeons, what the heck does a guy from Manitoba bring... Morden's Chocolates? Maple Syrup? Mosquitos?

i just map quested the directions from san angelo to dwight.. its only 1900 miles... so you reckon 3800 round trip. our SUV gets 17MPG, and gas will cost around $2.25 a gallon come summertime. so that comes up to just over $500 bucks in gas alone.

as much as i would love to, it just dont seem possible. especially when we have our big family reunion trip to north arkansas, planned for the last week in june.

just make sure someone takes lots of pictures. i know if you get this group of hoodlums together, you are bound to get a pic of something good.....like....

ray re-programming the remotes.
tharkun building a canoe.
mark taking tedious notes to create his 'mother of all axiom party' post.
peter, tom, and bigwill getting drunk by the keg.
bren fixing the lawnmower, installing track lighting, re-caulking the toilet, calibrating the heater flange on your microwave oven, and installing a monitor system in tharkun's new canoe.
ringmir smokin cigars and hitting on all the hot chicks.
ken gets drunk off 2 beers and runs around trying to convince everyone that M40's are the best speakers in the world.
bridgeman packs 'the heat', and shoots every squirrel in the neighborhood.
minirock finally explains his emotional and spiritual connection with princess lea.
spiffnme lets everyone give mr bear a kiss, then retires to the listening room to hear 'purple rain' on the EP600's.
2x6 and Haoleboy take their tube amps down by the lake, and watch the warm light twinkle like shimmering stars.
bray forgets to pack his cameras, which is the only damn reason he is there in the first place.
saturn installs his entire system on his lap-top, but then his wienny dog eats it..
whatfurrer boils up shrimp and crawdads, and brags about his new house in austin.
and johnk mingles thru the crowd explaining the inner workings of every single piece of audio equipment ever made.
ajax tried to make it, but he was too busy setting up his 'new' paradigm system that he won because his name rhymes with wax..

so, just try and get some pics, and let me know how it turns out!!

BTW I would NEVER forget the camera gear, with a group like that.
And the more beer I consumed the more pics I would take.

In reply to:

I wish. We're getting GOUGED here in LA. Average price for regular unleaded is about $2.60/gallon. Though just yesterday I saw a place just down the street from my office...are you ready for this? I hope you're sitting down.

Reg $2.89
Mid $2.99
Hi $3.09

That's SELF SERVE.

Around town (which is 99% of my driving) my Audi only gets about 15mpg. (closer to 25+ on the freeway, but I rarely ever drive the freeways.)

It would actually be cheaper for me to fly than drive. How crazy is that?



Back to the subject of FREE stuff...
