"Sorry - megs, not gigs. LOL! The project file is about 50mb, and that's just guitar and voice.  The final MP3 is anywhere between 15 mb and 23 mb, and they are really not long clips. 2 min max.  SO there is definitely something up…"

Ah!  At first glance I thought it said "Steven A. Smith" (erstwhile ESPN annoying commentator) !!

I'm originally a Baton Rouge native, so I do know the region where you're now living.  The population density and ten lifetimes' worth of 8-months'-sauna weather finally got to me in '98:  I moved to the Coeur d'Alene area in January 1999.  My wife is a Bonner/Kootenai County native, so the fit was immediate.  A few trips back to what I used to call "home" have reinforced the sanity of that '99 decision. 

Last month we were in Sandpoint to hear Leo Kottke at the Panida Theater.  That's the kind of small-venue where I first saw Leo in Baton Rouge, so that show was another kind of "coming home" for me. 

Give me a shout whenever you're headed this way.  The Bitterroot Valley is a beautiful area.  Hope you find a place there that fits your dream.
