    Default Same here on Halloween

    We just got the show up and running two days ago. Can't tell you what a nice feeling it was to go through and test everthing and not have a single problem with any lights at all this year. Definitely makes doing the work worth it in the end.

    Sad part to all this is that I;ve been traveling so much between Corpus Christi and Raleigh we only have one song programed. Going to drive Monster Mash to the limits with it playing over and over for two hours each night. Got to get home soon for sure....

    Craig, that is just fine. But do you have anything to steal in your yard? If so, what is it and will I trip over anything when I steal it? Do you have any CCRs that work? Do you have any guns?

    Want some extra sequences? PM me and I'll send them. I have a 2 for one special this week.

    Hey that's great Craig. I just started setting mine up today, had a weekend off. Sprinkles and mid 40s on temps, winds steady 10 with gusts to 25. I'm a wimp, didn't get it finished!


    Have any video of yours to post? (so Al will know what you have that he can steal)

    I have what I think is a lot of stuff to take out of the yard..... feel free to come by and take what you want. Just be careful that you don't hurt yourself on the fence..... might have to dodge a 45 slug here and there but you might get lucky. My eye sight is not what it used to be at night

    I did get two of the CCRs, have them in the house. Want to use them for something else first before giving them up to the halloween and x-mas displays.

    Sequences I got.... thanks though, I think. Really not much has changed since last years display but what did change is a pain in the ass to go back and rework. We changed our spider web from 26 channels to 36 channels.... and then the there is the pumpkin, that changed a good bit as well. Video will have to do the explaining on that one.....


    John, you *****! Get out there and finish... I did it when it was raining and blowing cold here, so you can as well. I am not going to be the only one that suffers. you here me!!??.. lol

    Yeah Craig, I hear you. Sunday got a little bit more done. Hey, why don't you send J over to help me while you're out of town. It would go a whole lot quicker with two people. (just jkg)

    Was wiring stuff up Sunday, used over 800 feet of SPT wire. Had the spool at the controller, pull and walk to the display element, install socket, walk back to controller, cut, install plug and repeat, over and over.

    Hard on this old man's legs.

    NOW, WHERE IS YOUR VIDEO?

    Craig,

    One thing about Al, he tries his best to insult and hurt everyone's feelings.
