First. To my contributors. I'll be in touch with you by the end of the day to refund your money.
Second. About the blog. This is a hobby and a passion. I would HAVE LOVED to attended MDM, but a hobby and a passion do not trump real life considerations and expenses. We're not there yet and might not ever "arrive". It is what it is. Are there things that I could do to make this a self sustaining entity? You bet. Would it compromise my ability to say what's on my mind? Absolutely! I refuse to make those compromises so SNAFU! might not ever get to be as large as I would like. I can live with that.
Lastly, I'll be scouring the net looking for coverage of the event. BAE is having a press availability on the SUPER AV, Lockheed Martin is taking the wraps off their vehicle and I'm sure SAIC will have the Terrex 2 Advanced somewhere...even if its just in model form. General Dynamics? I have no idea. They're as murky as the ocean bottom on their entrant.
That is all.
