View Full Version : Greetings from Tennessee!

Greetings from Springfield, TN just North of Nashville.

Been listening to the podcast a few months now. Listened to about 15 casts so far. Some new some old. Took me a few shows to get use to, but now it's my favorite podcast.

Been playing video games since before I can remember. Parents have pictures of me playing with an Atari controller when I was about 1 year old.

My parents had a Colecovision at one point, but my first system was a NES. Never been one to sell or trade games, so I have most the games I have ever owned. I scourer the thrift stores and yard sales of Middle Tennessee for games and hardware to add to my collection. Recently bought a Colecovision with the 2600 expansion module and purchased a bunch of Atari games. Looking to add more retro systems soon.

On the home arcade front, I have an old Arachnid dart machine that use to be in a bar my grandfather ran. Recently bought an old pachinko machine from an antique shop I am going to restore. Do not own any arcade machines, but would love to.

Looking forward to interacting with like minded people!

Well as Ted Nugent would say, your surrounded by that Nashville pussy. And you actually live in a hotbed of arcade activity. Auctiongamesales.com (http://www.auctiongamesales.com/AUCTIONDATES.htm)is located near you and many auctions are in the TN, NC area as well. Welcome to the show.

Thanks for the welcome.

Yeah I visited the Auctiongamesales site a few weeks ago, and plan to go to one of their Kingsport, TN auctions in the near future. It's about a five hour drive and I will have to get someone to loan me a truck, but it will be worth it if I get a cool cab.
