If you guys set up a meet I'd be interested in coming up, if that's okay.

Sure thing. I've added you to my mailing list. 

 

edit: just noticed your location. That'll be quite a drive, eh?

You can be our cross-border shopping mule!  tongue.gif

I am in Roseau, ten miles south of the border.  It's ~2.5 to 3 hours to Winnipeg depending on how far the strip search goes at the border. deadhorse.gif

 

As far as the 'shopping mule' goes...here's a little story about one of my experiences crossing the border.

I actually had a pair of pants I just bought in the trunk of my car when I went to Winnipeg to see a movie and got the third degree for it.  He thought I was bringing them to someone.  He then proceeded to start tearing my car apart "looking" for something???  It was somewhat funny to me at the time, and the lady in the minivan behind me was dying laughing as he climbed headfirst into my trunk, his legs sticking up in the air to search the back of my rear seat.  Luckity he got a phone call just as he started to tear the heat shielding off the underside of the hood of my car.

Ouch.  Yeah, crossing the border is rarely fun...

 

My wife and I thought that having kids and getting decent jobs would save us from having our car ripped apart at the border, but I guess we still look unconventional enough to potentially be druggies.

Ugh I hate border crossing, though I'm usually fairly lucky. Maybe it helps that I'm a broke student?

I played hockey with some fellas from a border town and I often saw them working as border guards. They told me that it's just a roll of the dice when it comes to who they interrogate, like every 15th car gets pulled. Gotta tell you, it was handy knowing the guards back when I would hit Minneapolis at least once a month with a ton of gear. Nothing like being waved to an empty line when your buddy is working in the busy line that you're in... "don't look up, fumble in the back seat..."... phew!

 

They all got their booze for their socials over the border too... no problems getting deals from the US duty-free when half the town are border guards.

Yeah, we seem to have more trouble getting into the States than coming back.  I've never gotten grief coming home.

No problem dude, if you want more hardcore gear porn feast your eyes below on my new mobile rig setup. The DAC was just received today.

Ah, you've almost got the full stack... all you need now is a balanced amp that can take an external battery pack.

Sweet Arly! I can't wait to check it out man.
