Great thread, Lorraine!  I'm REALLY grateful to all the periscopers, and to the TRFers who were watching during this summer! :heart: :heart: :heart:

Sorry if repeating, but I have an autoimmune condition that sometimes affects my activity level, etc. and I just couldn't travel to a concert this summer.  I thought I would have to just wait for the DVD and then watch it by myself while my family asks which one is Neil again!! :)  Periscope and the scope threads on here turned out to be perfect for me.  I couldn't have asked for anything better, short of being there! You guys are the best company!!  And then between shows we had the fun of seeing everyone's photos and looking at the landmarks in x1yyz's intro video thread.

Everyone really made it an awesome summer and filled with so much more Rush and fun here than I imagined. :notworthy: :notworthy:   Thanks to all-(and the phrase Bob's girlfriend will crack me up for the rest of my life, unexplainably to most others!!  :D)

Yes, thanks to everyone who made the "sacrifice"! I call it that because it really is. It's a lot easier to enjoy the show when you are just standing there watching it with your arms crossed and not a care in the world. It's entirely something else to keep it steady, keep it properly powered, and keep it going. It does distract you a bit in your own enjoyment of the show. So thank you, to all of you who took the "Periscope Plunge"! ;)

How about the Oklahoma reporter that scoped the first set of the Tulsa show? I think his name was Rich Mills?? Thanks to him (sorry if I got your name wrong) for getting the ball rolling and all the scopers! AN incredible experience. We should try to keep it going in MusicSpheres, post links to various concerts and discuss. But it ain't Rush and probably much harder to find a scoper.

Watching periscope feeds with everyone was a once in a lifetime experience. So much fun sharing it with everyone on top of being able to see the concerts live  like that. Next best thing to actually being there. I do feel sorry for anyone who missed it because it's been the highlight of my time here I would say that for sure.

from the UK I'd like to thank EarlyMorningJuice for great scopin'!

Apart from him and his mate being funny, the sound quality was great, very clear with no distortion..

I appreciate the "Periscopers" too. I only watched about 5 or five shows but it was cool to listen. The only thing that kind of killed it for me sometimes was the scopers with "vertical videoitous" and didn't their phones sideways. I wonder if they watch TV with it standing on it's side! Mostly I just listened anyway so it was really no problem.

I also appreciate all the people on TRF that posted periscope links in the threads. That really helped me out. Thanks to all of you!

I wonder what weedro11er will do with all the time on his hands now; I don't think he is a TRFer but I think he was commenting on the side every single time I was watching a scoped show!  :D

ha my wife works for a utah company...she's there right now for training.

I often thought about putting some of those stupid 'family member' stickers on my van. One dad, 4 wifes, 12 kids...and a dog.

'look honey, it's either a mormon or a NBA player!'

Yeah, I've been thinking I'm going to miss watching periscopes of shows with people here just as much as I'm going to miss the opportunity to actually go see Rush live.  Even with the "whack-a-mole" frustrations on slow nights, the company was always good.  :)
