Hi guys, as much as I'm meaning to make it to a meeting over in Seattle, I thought I should put it out that I'd be happy to have a visitor anytime someone's in town. I'm mostly available, fairly open schedule.

For me it would be a lot of fun to introduce someone to the sound I'm working on. I believe anyone will appreciate what I believe is about the finest 15 watts out there.

I can play either vinyl or CD. I likely have at least one thing you've heard among my smaller collection. (Classical and pop)

Anyway, shoot me a PM if you're coming through.

I'll do it! Next visit to town... Spokane is my hometown and I still have family & friends there, though since moving to Portland (from Seattle) I visit less—a couple more hours windshield time to get there. Makes a morning jaunt into more of an all day drive. What part of town are you in?

I am unlikely to be in the area but as a a child who grew up with Hollywood westerns here in the UK your mention of Spokane brings those times back to me.
I am sure though it is a very different place now.

i'm in the Seattle area, but in North Bend just 20 miles over Snoqualmie Pass on I-90....about a 4 hour drive from you. and you would not have to enter the danger zone around the Seattle metro to visit.

I'd love to do a home and home visit with you sometime. and if you drive over bring my friend Cyrus with you who also lives in Spokane.

Mike, that's good to know. Perhaps we can set something up near future. Would Cyrus be an audiophile?

I have great memories of my time as a youth in Spokane (Cheney area). I expect to visit the Pacific Northwest within a year or two and will visit Spokane.

Hello Mike,

You may have seen my earlier reply to your post... I tried to edit it using my phone and it was deleted, oops

My name is Rick, and I have been to your beautiful home a number of times. I enjoyed the Digital-Analog Challenge of 2007 and a few more visits later.

I believe the last visit I brought my daughter.
At the time, she was in Junior High... she is now a Junior at Seattle Pacific University.... how time flies!

I had a wonderful time each and every visit, can't think of a better host than you Mike

Look forward to when I will be able to return the favor and have your over.

I lived within 100 miles of Spokane north or south during my formative years.Visited relatives there often.
Sure, when I travel your direction I'll PM you to get an address. Could be as early as mid-July.
