Seattle, Slugs, and AV Solutions

It’s day two in Seattle for the Road Show team as they tie a bow on the West Coast leg of the tour. Chief’s Karen and Liz are along for the ride this week and sent in some pics.


This slug was the first photo Joel got in his inbox this morning. He shuddered a lot.

Goldie Haulin’ Goes to Washington

State, that is.

The Road Show team finished California and are spending a couple days in Seattle, Wash. This will be the last few days on the Road Show for Michelle and Mitch and the last of the West Coast stretch, which began in Albuquerque, N.M. on June 17. Google Map charts it as more than 3,300 miles not counting all the back and forth within the regions going from dealer to dealer.

3374 miles. More Road Show maps at the tab at the top of the page.

After that, it’s off to the Midwest region – starting in Nebraska.

Here are a few pics from Northern California.

We don’t need a lot of floor space for a road show stop, but it’s nice when it happens.

California day 2

The Road Show crew sent a few pics from their time so far in California.

When I (Joel) look at these, I can’t help but add the soundtrack of California songs I grew up with – songs by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tupac, The Mamas & The Papas, and The Beach Boys (hey, 60s songs can also be a part of my childhood thanks to the magic of radio).

What songs play on your internal jukebox when you think about California?

The Scenic American West

One of the best things about the road show is the opportunity to get out and see the best scenic views the country has to offer. The road show wrapped up Salt Lake City last week before heading south to Phoenix, Ariz. Road Show Specialist Extraordinaire Tyrel Boehm sent in these pics from the road.
