Going down south to a wedding

Recommended Posts

So, I'm having to go down to Dothan, Alabama for a wedding on the last weekend of June.

There will be my wife's family, and family politics, and stress, and a long drive to and from.
Two nights spent in a hotel, and we are carrying the 90 year old father-in-law down with us in the rental car.

My wife sighed to me this evening, "Look, I really appreciate your doing this. I know you hate weddings. And I know you're going to go crazy on a long weekend without your guitars and band-mates."

I told her, "It's okay, darling. I have been doing some shopping-ahead on the internet. I'll be alright."

I'd buy way more stuff than that for what you're talkin' 'bout...

I'm not actually playing the wedding gig. 
We're attending the wedding is all. 

I just wanted a travel rig to enjoy while in the hotel at night, something that won't bother the immediate neighbors. 

On a trip to Yuma, AZ years ago, I brought along an old guitar effects processor, small cable, and headphones. 
My plan was, since I was to be out there for at least two weeks, to go find a cheap used guitar in a pawn shop, clean it up, and use it for the hotel while I was out there. 

Sure enough, I found am 'El Toro' model (by Behringer guitars) for 39 bucks, and it was a gem of a guitar!
Good times.

That looks like an awesome travel rig.  [thumbup]

But, what I meant was I'd want more compensation for the pain and suffering of attending the events!  [sad]
