Now drop it please.
Dude, chill out... I'm not sure what your issue is but you are making my question much worse and making it seem like someone is trying to hide something...

If I am to get involved in trying to bring a future 'Fest to the Chattanooga area along with some corporate involvement those are issues that would be brought up and would need to be addressed. Without knowing goals or even basic info about past events and expenses it is hard to get people involved...

When I spoke with Fred via email prior to the Lexington, KY 'Fest and in person he seemed like a really great guy and he was very nice to both my wife and I over the whole weekend while we were there covering the event. He was also helpful when I was writing the event coverage for the Diesel World magazine article. Not once did he give me the "I don't have to answer to anybody" bottom line attitude that you did in your post so I just don't get why you are doing it???

I have personally given this website a lot of national magazine exposure and I drive a TDI and would like to have a great 'Fest so what is your issue???

I am not trying to expose "Watergate" or anything like that and I do not think anything like that is going on at all... I just think it would be good for those that want to propose a 'Fest know what the goals are, what it takes to operate and what has happened in the past. When this thread is asking for volunteers to put in their time and suggestions it seems like a very reasonable request...

Heck if Fred was making Billions and living in the Bahamas on a private island from the site, that would be cool with me! He though of it and built it why shouldn't he be rewarded for his hard work... it might even inspire others to go out and try something similar for themselves...

Anyhow, sorry for ruffling your feathers, I just don't understand why it did???
