Happy Camper Studio Upgrade
Skip installs new “AudioArts Engineering” Broadcast Console
In a constant effort to bring our listeners the very best in content and quality, Skip recently decided to upgrade the Happy Camper Radio studio with a professional state-of-the-art broadcast console. After more than a month of “behind the scene” preparations that included removing all analog wiring and replacing it with digital CAT6 cables and RJ-45 connectors, the Happy Camper Radio Show is now sounding better than ever before. The new AudioArts Engineering “Air 5” broadcast console provides 16 channels of quality audio which is clearly notable beginning in Episode 152. Of course, like anything, there were a number of challenges and hurdles to overcome before the console was ready for use. This included the installation of a SoundBlaster Titanium HD soundcard and some careful fine-tuning. The “Air 5” allows Skip the ability to pull in phone calls to the show from a variety of sources. He also employs the new console in his voiceover profession.

Gary Sizer Completes His Hike of the Appalachian Trail
Congratulations to our friend Gary Sizer on his successful hike of the Appalachian Trail. Gary’s journey began back in May when he came to Georgia and started hiking the trail at Springer Mountain. Throughout his five month hike, he made several new friends along the way. Gary stayed in touch with the show, and always made it a point to keep us updated on his progress. Not very many people are able to accomplish what Gary did. Right now, he is back at home working a book. We’ll have more information on that as time progresses. Meanwhile, you can check out some of the entries he posted online by visiting his website at: www.wheresthenextshelter.com.
Skip rides the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway
In early August, Skip took a short trip to the north Georgia mountains to take in the fresh air, and to ride the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. Check out some of the highlights from his open-air rail car as he travelled to the Georgia border, where he visited the town of McCaysville and Copperhill, Tennessee.
Relaxing by the FireNothing beats sitting by a campfire on a calm cool night in the fall. The sounds of crackling wood and that infamous hissing sound will not only reduce stress, but calm your nerves and allow you to forget about all of life’s struggles, even for just a short while.
