This year, now that I'm thinking about it now, I will put in for the time off. ~1800 miles, 26 hrs, out there from where I'm at so that's easy in just about 2 tanks, but I need to make sure I pit for B20 a couple times. I'll know more if I can go when we get closer, and if I can, I'll be offering up my skills as a photographer.

I have already scheduled the time off. It's about 1600 miles and about 22.5 hrs, according to Google.

Have Fun!

Are there other goups that are also working on proposals, either for 2014 or 2015?

Good question. There was once the beginnings of a group working for a Denver/Boulder Colorado fest, but I do not know what happened to that idea. As far as I know it stalled out somewhere along the line. I personally would love to see a fest within a one day drive from where I live.

Have Fun!

I originally answered the pole as "not sure if I can attend" but after consideration (this would be less than 3 hours drive for me) I will change my response to "I fully expect to attend" oh and I will need a room.

Almost 2 weeks since the last progress report, and it is already February.

Dozen told me we are meeting soon to discuss particulars. From what I understand, progress has been made on location and hotel space. It would appear that is the most difficult part of the process.

T minus 7 months.

Location and hotel are the easy parts...

Greetings!

Our local crew is having a meeting on 2-15. I'll have a clearer focus after that. I apologize for the gaps in time between updates. I wish to explain my job has a million variables, but one constant is the fact it costs me $2.55 an hour just to keep it. Every single hour of the year, whether I work or not, $2.55. Clink, clink clink. There are good days and bad days, and on the good days I have to capitalize on them, and build up my bank to afford the hours I'm not running. So I'm most productive when focused on a single task. When I need to earn, that's what I do. When I need to detail my car, or do housework, I set the day aside. When I'm working on the Fest, or on the forum.....you get the idea.

So I just want to say I'm encouraged by all the response and pledge to put my best effort into this endeavor, and think we can make a sucess. I've got charts and lists going, a new printer and good support so far. I'll make any new announcements as soon as I can.

Regards,

Yes, we know, but $2.55 X 24 X 365 = $22,388.00! That's pretty steep for a Taxi license.

I have no idea how his company works or what kind of licensing they have in St.Louis. My guess is that he pays that rate for all of the hours he is working (or supposed to be working) even when he is sitting awaiting a fare, deadheading back from a long fare, or eating lunch. I doubt that he has to pay it 24/7. If he does, you are right.

Have Fun!

Don
