I'm hoping the silence on this thread is because there are groups too busy coming up with proposals to be frittering away time posting.

Yeah, I'm an optimist.

Those that are thinking (even remotely) of organizing a TDIFest in an area, for 2014, 2015, or even 2016 feel free to start a new thread in this section. This why the future discussion section was created. There are a number of different groups and people out there that might be able to jump in and move this forward for this or future years.

If you would like more details, feel free to contact one of the previous organizers or myself for more details.

I plan to...just as soon as some details/confirmations are made to VeeDub by people I put him in touch with. He asked I hold off on any formal announcement until a couple things solidify. I secretly have a good chunk of an event "planned" out and I believe a few locals willing to help with the cause already. I just want to say; Go Denver 2015!

Pick 2014 location by mathamatical calculation, pick the spot nearest to the most TDIClub users. For once, try to include people.

Well maybe he missed the link in post 3.

Here's a crudely modified map to illustrate where/when the past fests have been. While "too much New England" has been a voiced complaint, I think folks have done not too bad of a job bouncing it around:



Here is another highlighting the interstates that go DIRECTLY to/through St. Louis Missouri:



All this is part of why I think the STL is an excellent candidate and it being here in 2014 would be a timely benefit to growing the event and reaching more and newer members of TDI club. It the 3rd farthest west ever and very very central to all of the US east of the Rockies. Where there are interstates there is population, and many many folks are near equidistant from Denver to DC, and Texas and Florida to St. Paul.

No direct through link to California so I guess I'm out.

Ah, but that is not "direct" as I'd have to change Interstates!
The only ones he is showing as "direct" are 44, 55, 64, & 70. Of course if I limited myself to the smallest number of Interstates, then I could take 80 to the 55 junction then south to St. Louie.

BTW, old Route 66 is now roughly (West to East) I-10 to I-15 to I-40 to I-44 to I-55
