I love the VAP

Keep the updates coming!

I'm an insomniac and it gives me something besides bad news in the paper to think about at night; sometimes I actually fall asleep to it. (Not because it's boring).

My iPod has helped with the more tedious parts of working on the Airstream. During good weather I plug it into my boombox and crank it without headphones while plugging away. Also, I wear them inside and pretend I'm in a glossy sexy TV commercial instead of a stay at home Mom just doing housework. Works for a few minutes.

Thanks for the feedback, just want to make sure I wasn't cluttering the forum.

Tim,

I listened to the show last night in my office while I was working. It made me stop work and listen. I believe this is the best VAP to date. Keep it up and keep reminding us!

Thanks,

Dennis

CD's? What happened to cassettes? I just managed to replace almost all of my 8 tracks with cassettes. What a journey that was! Now you are talking CD's? And iPods? Mork comes to mind. Come on you guys, some of us seem to be strolling along the technology path while others appear to be in a 100 yard dash. My friend at IBM keeps telling me his is not going to help me fix my 386 computer the next time it crashes - jeepers, some of us like to make absolutely sure the technology is fully tested before we make the move ya know.

I just finally got around to listening to the latest ep. Cool! They mentioned my 'doohicky' thread What fun! Great to actually hear Wallys voice (considering he's been dead since long before I was born). What a fantactic episode!

Hey, Wallys the man! I love how he mentioned the amenities of the trailers, including a kitchen for the little lady to cook for him in Did anyone catch what year that interview was done?

We are pretty sure it was from 1954 based on the advertisments in the Talk of the Town.

Thanks for listening!

I really enjoyed that. They were at the Calgary Stampede, having come up through Glacier National park as he mentioned St Mary's (Waterton National Park on the Canadian side). I wonder if they went over the pass (Logan if I remember right - highway to the sun) or around it. I didn't realize they were doing caravans as early as 1954. Very neat. Thanks for this. I listened to 8 and 9. Barry

The Today Show!

Barry,

This morning, on Dec 26, the Today show is doing a iPod 101, and how they work. Maybe you can catch it.

Thanks Rob. When I mentioned to the techies at work I'd not even held an iPod it was like they'd struck gold. For the price of lunch next week I get to sit around with sandwiches and get "ramped up", as they like to term it. I've had a Blackberry sitting on my desk at work as well but not used it to their chagrin - my feeling is the easier it is for work to find me the harder it is for me to have a life after hours and on weekends. So the guys are intending to initiate me with it as well. Drat! There just isn't any hiding any more.

Take care. Whether I like it or not I'm about to be tech'ied.
Barry

IPOD??? Huh, I've got a Treo 650 with a 1 GB SD card. It plays my MP3's through the stereo ear buds. It also interupts when an incoming call reaches the phone side!! Ipod's are great but I want more from my digital devices....
I for one appreciate the heads up on the podcasts though.

That's cool. And it shows that you do not need an iPOD to listen to theVAP!

In fact, most people listen to the show on their computer. The easiest way is to just click on the Listen Now button on the website.

IPods are fun though and make it easy to listen where ever you want.
