Yeah, this all sounds very familiar to me.

Welcome aboard!

I'll bet she loves it.  Hint: Let her pick the movie and invite some of her friends.

Keep us posted, and have a blast!

I have 2 Epson's and love them both!  I'm kind of the opposite of you.  I built the Outdoor first, thinking the wife would like it, but being a Yankee I guess (no Offense to Yankees)  ;D  she just can't get used to the outside.  The bugs and "outdoor noises" scare her, and she jumps every time the Surround kicks in thinking someone's busting in the backyard to get her.

Oh well, now she wants one on the inside which is fine with me!  You can't beat permanent big TV outside & INSIDE!

welcome aboard!

Unfortunately, Mother Nature is the one thing we can't control.  The first week of College Football season I had a Geargia Tech VS ND party and wouldn't you know it right before kick off it started to rain.  I checked the doppler and saw one little green speck over my house, and that was the only green on the radar!

Luckily it was in and out so we didn't miss much, but you always have to take the weather into consideration when planning something like this.  Beter luck this weekend and send some pics of your setup when it quits raining  ;D
