For 2008, there will be NO LIMIT on the number of TDIs VW is allowed to sell. That will be the real test to see how many they can sell.

So TDIFest could turn into Waterfest...

Anyway. I can't help out too much. Maybe some website / php coding (of which I do have quite a bit of). I even have a bit of knowledge of GoogleCheckout (I shake my fist at PayPal). It would be nice to have it back in the MidWest. From this population distribution map of the US from Census data (1 dot = 1000 people), Cinci/Columbus/KY would be pretty well centered.


However. My greatest contribution will be something my sleep Deprived brain came up with this morning, the 'name'.

TDiFest OH-8!

Does dense population equate thickly settled?

IIRC, according to the Census Bureau, the population center of the United States is in Missouri.

It would be interesting to see where the population center of TDI's in the United States and Canada is located....

There's a definite TDI triangle into which TDI migrate to never come out. This diesel equivalent to the Bermuda triangle lies within a small area bounded by the Hamsterdiesel and PeterV, Jetter-Sprinta, and IndigoBlueWagon's residences.

Well, my car has managed to escape the clutches of that Bermuda-like triangle after several GtG's at the Ho5G's - but it seems as if some attachment was made, because all you guys seem to have followed me to Montreal recently !!!!

Feeling withdrawal, are we?

Frankly the triangle REALLY should include Tomo's residence and not the Ho5G...TDI's migrate to Ho5G, but mosty they leave again...

edit - but then again, Tomo never has more than 2 for very long...but they do rotate through there at a MUCH higher rate than average...but then again AGAIN, TDI owners are not average!

There is a reason DHL (previosuly Airborne) chose Wilmington, OH as their national hub. I forget the exact numbers but it would be a reasonable location. So, Dayton would be a good choice in my opinion.


If Ohio residents want to talk with me about it, just let me know. I am a project manager by day...
