Waiting around while your car’s in the shop isn’t so bad when the sun is shining and your M8/Ely combo is singing blissfully into your ears.

Ely sits really flat...it’s easy to lie down wearing them.

We've just reached a balmy hoodie and shots of 3 C with wind chill of - 3 C.

Exhausted from plowing the 3 inch ice sheet in the drainage. Looks like summer

I don’t mind temperature fluctuations - like this weekend was around 36 C here in Johannesburg; which dropped to around 22 yesterday.

What I don’t like is big changes in pressure systems / precipitation patterns. Sunday was very sunny, clear skies, hardly a breathe of wind. Yesterday was dark, looming clouds with bouts of torrential rain. I don’t enjoy those shifts because they wreak havoc on my sinuses and ears (tinnitus and / or poorly functioning Eustachian tubes) as they seem to be very susceptible to atmospheric pressure changes.

Having said that I count myself very lucky here with our relatively mild and comfortable weather. This is especially so seeing the types of weather so many people need to deal with, be it 40 plus heat waves or double digit negative temperatures and snowstorms as we have seen recently in Europe and the US.

2 weeks ago it was -22c in Germany 😅 today was 17c ... pretty strange ..
Funny group - South Africa, USA, Germany and i guess somebody in Asia too .. and i am in the Cote d'Azur - south of France. Jackpot - we have warm weather and i can see from my windows not only the Mediterranean sea but also the snowy mountains (Alps) - as we say - we usually (before and hopefully after Covid-19) go skiing in the morning and take a swim in the sea in the afternoon. With or without IEM's plugged it (not while swimming). At the moment though we are in heavy confinment - so just a good time to relax and listen to music -

At least that combo is worth more than Traili :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
Swapped out the Phantom for the Wraith now and added an extra amp, which makes LPGT > Honey H1 > Code 51 > Wraith. It is starting to feel a little surreal. :sweat_smile:

Have the walls of reality started getting blurry yet Erik? :ghost:

I've been swapping between A12t, Odin and M4 on a nightly basis, things are getting weird

Yeah, I get to try out so much flagship gear at the moment that it feels a bit surreal. Not that I am complaining, mind. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
