I'm Becoming a Geek

I'm half way to geekdom. Once I add a flat panel out back and a backup camera, I'll be a full-fledged geek.

Uh oh... hhmmm... I wonder what that means for me ??

Scan Guage
Nuvi 350
Laptop mount w/ quick release
2 gps antennas
3.5in monitor for reverse & forward cameras
19in flat panel tv
twin mounts for handheld GPS or cell phones
external cellular antenna wired to passenger seat and PC aircard
K7 satellite antenna
Radio aux in from TV

I am going to stop before going up to the overhead panel with the switches and such....

Would the air-horn that plays "The Eyes of Texas" count?

Older guys like me have eased into the world of high tech more gingerly than some of you. When I get around to posting pics of our vintage SMB, you'll pretty much just see the original stuff (unless Santa brings me a backup camera). Hope you understand - my dad was a nerd of his day, but he used a slide rule. Used to play our LPs with a steam-powered turntable, you know...
