On the Road

Heading to WoVOCon in a few weeks and for the first time, I’m going to set up my mobile rig. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not a “Johnny come lately”, but since it’s a voice biz trip, I believe it’s appropriate.

I still maintain, when I go “on vacation”, the reason I go is to decompress from my daily full-time job of voicing. Give my mind AND voice a break. That is so important for your piece of mind and your mental health. Now, I’m not trying to push my beliefs on those who DO carry their portable studios everywhere they go, including their family vacations, but just give it a thought. Everyone takes vacations and not everyone takes their work with them.

When I need a break, I need the distance from my work. Just thought this might be a good time to try out my mobile rig while I’m attending a business-related event. Most likely, since most don’t know I even have a mobile setup, I’ll probably not get any requests. But at least I’ll learn what to deal with in the airport with our lovely & talented TSA agents. My recent trips have been uneventful and frankly, I’d like to keep it that way.

What do you think?
