Well that's your fault for living in California! You know how they like to make your life difficult. :p

BOR-ING! ;) Might as well make an epic scenic back route out of it! BTW, if you come in I-44, you don't even need to touch I-55, just take I-44 east and hang a left at State Highway 109 in Eureka and you're there. :D

Or, I could take US 50 all the way. ;)

Unfortunately there is this HUMOUNGOUS pond between CA and HI so I can't take my TDI there! However, TDIFest in Hawaii IS intriguing.

STL makes sense, if you can't have the World Series Title the least we could do is have the 'Fest there :-)

^^ Did I miss a post? :confused:

At least it doesn't take us 95 years to win one in own stadium! :p

The cards and red sox combined have won 5 of the last 10 world series... if cards fans are crying, I have no sympathy... try being a cubs fan... I have sympathy for them... all that aside, I think STL would be a wonderful place for TDIFest... ironically, the proposed location is less than a mile from my old house... I remember when there wasn't hardly anything in that area except a few housing subdivisions...

We're just kiddin' around, captain. The Sox are a deserving team and I'm glad the City of Boston could get a nice pick-me-up after the tragedy earlier this year. :)

Is there a map of where the this web site users are? An equation would calculate the center by weighting the distances by user count. California for instance with it's many users would "pull" the center to it because it has weight, say a higher percentage. A math geek would do it before breakfast. This should be considered whenever the site is chosen, not the only factor, but over years it should grossly cover the most users. Other factors would be fun/family factor, facilities, and a few effs more.

A major problem is that the Location item is optional and would not work with fake locations. Fred would have to mandate everyone put in an actual physical location.

Other than Wrigley Field for the Cubbies (built 1914), no other stadium is even as close to being that old. The third oldest was built in 1962.
"According to current ownership, Fenway Park has at least another 40-50 years of structural durability in its current state, and they intend to use every one of them." So maybe one more World Series win and countless "Buckner" bobbles?

I do like your Spock-like approach of thinking, ;) but the event planning is more organic than that; subject to motivation and opportunity and bandwagonism. I too would like to see that map of members but understand it cannot be scientific as romad has pointed out. At the moment, I feel I'm the biggest nut on this topic and have gathered some support on TDIFestSTL into the lead idea at this time. That's not to say someone more aggressive could still pull out California or Colorado and make that happen instead. A California Fest seems inevitable, but it just takes some motivated masochists to get together and make it happen. No reason that can't be you! :)

Ottawa would be fun too...?
