I am exhausted! .. and THAT is an understatement! I had been from Atlanta to LA to Vegas back to LA and back to Atlanta in 5 days.
LOTS of cool gear..pics that will/would eat TONS of space on the server to post.. so what I'm going to do is a little brief piece and post a link to my online photobucket album and you can feel free to look through all the pics there.
For a Caparison write up.. I spent a while talking to Itaru through an interpreter as usual. Always very polite and hospitable. Frozen Sky is out.. Iceberg is back in.. Sunset is back in on the TAT 9I and II) and Violet Iris is back on the Horus.
For cool stuff that happened.. I found Mattias Eklundh wandering around..went over and started a conversation that last three days..lol.. including a 45 minute private lesson/convo with him.. playing his personal instruments.. (more pics to come).. We talked a lot about fatherhood and that stuff..BTW.. his action is really high! lol.. even he laughs about it!.. I'd given him a copy of "Intelli-Shred" the first day we met and the next morning he and I were talking and he'd gone through the book.. knew parts of it and complimented it greatly.. it was very surreal.
Then over at the EBMM booth, I went over and met Steve Morse.. we talked again for a while and I wound up autographing an Intelli-Shred for his son.. who's also named Kevin.."To Kevin From Kevin"..
tons and tons of cool gear.. Especially over at Caparison.. Gary Kramer Guitars, Jackson, EBMM, etc.. enjoy the pics!
Here's the url for the album..

That's awesome that you got to check all that stuff out, and even cooler that you were complimented on your book! About to check out the photos!!

Crikey! Sounds like you had a really great time, and Mattias sounds like a great guy, aswell! From the few videos I've seen of him, he seems to be a very down to earth and funny guy...

Priceless!
