Re: [DML] DCS'12

I get 8 mpg from Cincinnati and I brought 3 trailors. Roughly $800 per vehicle to get here. All I can say is those that missed it probably missed the best content show we have ever had.  I hope they realize that they have missed an opportunity of a lifetime over about $300 or less in gas. That group will never be together again.  DCS 2014 will be space limited due to past show attendance since 2008 . I get places based on conservative numbers     
Roughly 148 people registered at the show or approximately 32 %. It made it hard to keep things moving please pre register.  
In Dayton we do have limits so if you do not pre register you may not get in.  There were two gate crashers at the show we kept kicking out one I think was from the Carolinas the other Florida. They will be uninvited to the next show. It cost me and my crew a lot of time being security police as well.  This is steeling from the rest of you.  We had to lock the maintenance doors in the back and all doors of the room because of them.  You two know who you are me and marc asked you
 To register many times. You never did.  I trust the rest of the community backs this decision.  We wasted a lot of time because of you and had to post someone at the door that we had not planned on.

I agree with you.
I had the opportunity to drive my D from Texas to DCS 2008.
Hear a lot of whining and sobbing over the $3 gas prices.
We pay about three times that amount for a gallon (now Euro 1,78 per liter times 3.8 to get a gallon).
And yes, a lot of people over here also do get in tears about those prices.
Alike you I do not get too much frustrated about it. I just drive and enjoy the driving.
