Do you need a ride to Carverfest 11
« on: June 11, 2011, 05:05:28 PM »

I'm trying to figure out how I am getting to Carverfest 11 this year.
Last year I drove down with my wife (Pat) 20hrs from Ottawa, Canada. took a lot of gear down with me.
This year my wife can not make it, due to a planed trip to Las Vegas with a friend from England.

As I will only be going for the last weekend it's a long drive on my own. (and time away from work)

So my options are, Fly and rent a car (or get Tom to pick me up at the airport) no problem to do it this way
that's how my wife and I got there for Carverfest 09, but bring no gear. :'( :'( :'(
Or drive 20hrs each way on my own. Well I do not want to do that, even though I will be able to bring some gear.

So if anybody is thinking about going to Carverfest 11 for the last weekend, and lives in the Pittsburgh area and would like to share the driving
I could drop by and pick you up.(and that way I can bring my tube rig & T/T)
I am thinking about being at CF11 Thurs, Fri, Sat, leaving on the Sunday morning.could even make it Wends to Sun.

I will have to book my flights by the end of June, so that's the cut off date.

I will be staying in cabin 2 with Tom & Tom.

Pepe, this may be a great option.  That TT needs to come down.

I really can't believe that no one has taken Brian up on this great opportunity to spend time with a great group of people and meet Bob Carver.

I am thinking it might be that you are not sure what we mean when we say "cabin", and you think of some dingy, damp and grungy place to stay at.  Well let me tell you, these cabins are nicer than most peoples homes.

Check out the site and the cabin we are staying in:  http://www.watershedcabins.com/cabin-details/items/watershed-02.html

If you are worried about price, contact me and I can give you an idea on what it will be depending on how many people we have staying with us.  More staying the less the cost!!!!!!!

So you better hurry as I think Brian is going to be booking his fight soon!
Got Carver?

Maybe I should take advantage of this offer.
I don't know if I could afford to go otherwise.

I keep thinking of bringing my own vacuum tube audio system.
A 1957 RCA Orthophonic record player  ;D

Its not stereo but its not too hard to move and it sounds decent.

Don't think I want to bring my Acoustats.
