    Hello Texans!

    Just thought I'd stop in and say hello. I've been a member of PC for a while but just recently relocated to Austin from Orlando. I hope to see what everyone has in store for Halloween and Christmas. Hopefully we can get ours off the ground this year. We gave away a lot of our decorations when we moved and have had mass controller issues (Lynx Express and Animated Lighting if anyone is a pro with this in the Austin area.) Anyway, glad to be here!
  2. Most everything has been picked up. Here's what is left: the guillotine, the 5 chicken wire Christmas trees, and about a dozen of the grave crosses.
  3. I'm having trouble uploading additional pics so pm with e-mail for more pics. Also you can see most everything in this Youtube video: You can see the chicken wire trees in this video (middle of the yard before we had a mega tree)
  4. We are moving to Austin in three months, which means we are doing some downsizing. All of the decorations are homemade and have been used about 3-4 years. I'm located in Oviedo and you'd need a truck or van. If no one has a use for any of it, it will go in the trash at the end of the month. It has been stored in my back yard so there is some wear. Here's what I have: --Halloween fencing, pvc fence with wood frame & painted black. Used last year for the first time. Have 6-7 6-foot fence segments --Skeleton cage (disassembled), black with silver "bars" pvc cage with wood top and bottom,
  5. Wow, thanks so much! We're honored because there are some super fantastic displays out there!
  6. We use wooden stakes made out of scrap pieces -- like the kind on election, garage sale signs etc. We pound the into the ground then use silicon caulk to glue the tombstones to the stakes. Works great for us.
  7. OK, found a use for the red strobes. Put a few in three different bushes. They'll go in the mega tree at Christmas time. Loving the strobes though. I might need more.
  8. Show's been running a couple of weeks but we finally taped it. Here's a link to what's going on at my house at Halloween: Hard to some some it it. There is an 8-foot guillotine in the back and a 10-foot mausoleum with crank ghost. Also you can't see most of the two dozen grave crosses on the left side of the yard or heads of fence posts. PS I definitely DO NOT have a future in cinematography!
  9. Great stuff, thanks! I got it Saturday. By the way does anyone have a direct link to the spools of wire at Skycraft? Can't find it on their site to save my life. I need green wire. I'm nearby and also wonder if they have many in stock at their store?
  10. I'm also lacking in motivation. I've managed to order tons of parts but alas I haven't even tried to put the dongle together yet... Rangebob, you're in Orlando and flaloop in Oviedo like me. Maybe we should all get together and brainstorm sometime. Coffee and ideas? Building projects at my house? Just a thought. I always feel invigorated about a good brain storming and with the parts for 4 new controllers arriving soon I need to get in gear. WE did get all the Halloween stuff out of the attic but have not done anything with that either. Shoot me a pm if either of you or anyone else in Central
  11. I might be up for buying all the red LEDs. We're on a slow march toward LEDs. Think I'm actually only about an hour from you.
  12. Songs I've used in 08 and earlier: Thriller Ghostbusters Night on Bald Mountain Adams Family/This is Halloween mix Monster Mash The Munsters theme song Flying Purple People Eater What I used last year: Living Dead Girl by Rob Zombie Pet Cemetery by the Ramones Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show theme song from The Exorcist (love this one, very creepy)
  13. We built one last year thanks to some help from Chuck and a few others. It seemed really daunting at first as I'm not the techie type but it was much easier than I thought it would be. Really, it's not that bad. Dealing with malfunctioning light controllers is far more of a pain. I refused to pay $60 for the motor at Graingers so I found a 4 rpm motor for $6 at Skycraft in Orlando. Don't know if you can get one off the web site but it is www.skycraftsurplus.com Definitely check these types of surplus stores if you have one near you. The savings was substantial and it was super cheap to build
  14. Thanks for the ideas. Checking out the web site and trying to get a hold of Brett.
