Personally, I think the driving and pure shenanigans are what make the trip more so than the actual destinations. I can't thank you, Bru, and everyone else enough who have contributed to the Tour for the awesome trips but just the journey itself is what I find fun.

And maybe this year I can fucking let loose a little.

I'm basically in for whatever. I have a baby free weekend

I've never been to Detroit so that might be fun. I do kind of want to go to the Henry Ford Museum, and I know [MENTION=126]Dasfinc[/MENTION] would too.

Dammit, you could see who votes? I wanted someone to say "who picked something else?!?!" and I'd be all like :mamoru:

Honestly, I don't see the fun in driving for hours and hours, it would most certainly be 10x more fun if we were all in the same car and bullshitting whilst on the trip, that would be cool, but no way that's going to happen. I drive for about 4hrs with my friends to track my car at Gingerman, and is the most boring part of the entire weekend. Once we're there we have a bit of a drive to get to the store we shop at and we all ride together, that part is fun AF, I wish it was 4hrs of us just talking shit and having fun.

I'm okay with either your original Detroit idea, or a clock-wise circle tour.

Hell, I'm okay with repeating the Kentucky Gang-bang too.

The past two were fun. And to be honest, much of the fun is the scenic and tour-type roads.

All the people who hem and haw suck. Do the tour, have fun.

Don't wanna drive? Ask for a ride. Can share the mileage and drive time. Money is saved for those who are looking at that.

Most hotels also have the double queens, so that reduces the cost a bit too.

Probably should have took input from past successful TCG tour organizers instead of planning your own tour.

We....should do this :rofl::rofl: Need to find a clapped out school bus on the cheap ( [MENTION=945]daturbosix[/MENTION] could probably help us). Fix 'er up, TCG Themed Party Bus.

I PM'd with [MENTION=12]Bru[/MENTION] several times. Mook said he wasn't doing it this year so didn't think I needed to talk with him. I PM'd [MENTION=340]Eagle[/MENTION] about some help with dates. Who else did I miss? I'm sorry if you were looking for a PM as I didn't know who all the past organizers were and if you were one of them. Not to mention I made a post about ideas and anyone could have reached out to me and no one did. So I don't really feel like I dropped the ball. But since you obviously think I did thanks for the shot to the nuts. I have spent more hours than I care to think about figuring out how to do the Detroit trip with no previous experience to fall back on. I just tried to apply what I could from what Bru did and use the input he gave me (which I am very thankful for as I know he is a VERY busy guy these days) to do the best I could to keep this trip alive because it is one of my favorite things to do. But your response coupled with the lack of response from most of the people who had shown interest shows me I may have wasted quite a bit of my time.

Seriously. I don't understand this place anymore.

Panda's comment was way out of line.

And you were absolutely right, I bowed out for 2018 so I really had no feedback....and quite honestly, Bru has been the mastermind most of the time for past Tours...along with help from Jim. I mean I helped but planning things has never been my strong suit. You were absolutely right to go to Bru first and get his feedback.

Salvage what you can and enjoy yourselves. Thats the only advice I can give.

Yeah. That was kind of shitty.

I’m not saying “somewhere else” because I’m not going to be the one planning it out. Circle is an established route for everyone, easy to just pick up and go.
