Every time I check in on tekkies Dave Wise and Todd Hiltz I get irritated. Not only do they find all the good stuff, but Todd then puts together a damn good video just to rub it in.
While I frequently bust their chops (or balls if you prefer) I really appreciate their tenacity when it comes to researching a site and then following up. I have always felt that research is so much more important than having to have the latest and most expensive equipment and these guys prove this out. If you want to see more of Todd’s videos click HERE.
I would love to hunt with these guys but three miles into the woods? Are you shitting me?
ONGOING AREAS OF CONCERN
Had a couple of emails and comments come my way concerning previous problem areas, and I wanted to share what I know (or don’t know)…
First off concerning Cook County, Illinois and Louisville, Kentucky… I emailed Avery Marder, president of the Task Force but so far have not received a response. Likewise I emailed Mark Schuessler, president of the FMDAC), regarding the potential park bans in Erie County, New York and he too has not responded. Perhaps it’s the ole “things are going on behind the scenes”. I have no clue!
Anyway I will let you know if I hear anything and I would suggest you contact the groups as well. Just maybe we can coax a response out of them. If you don’t receive an answer, let me know. I am very much a ‘persona non grata’ with all three major groups and if I need to embarrass or piss them off I will do it. After all if you are going to advertise yourself as the spokesperson for the pastime you better be able to live up to the hype, and honestly ‘any’ answer is better than none!
As for WWATS they were supposed to have a new website up and running my March 15th, and then it was postponed until April 15th. Now? June 15th. I have no clue what is going on with this organization. They, like the FMDAC, have a penchant for putting on events and get togethers but not much else. I wonder too about their financial well being in that they both are having problems putting together a decent website and in this day and age that is a necessity for any national organization.
