This is a subject that we have had to deal with in the past. Fuel-----------------noticed the price of late. Diesel in my part of the country is getting close to 3.50. I know folks have said if you want to do something bad enough you'll find a way. If fuel was the only concern that might be true. Food, gunpowder, etc. etc. Want and being able to afford basic things in this country for some is getting tough. I'm lucky, so many in this country right now are not. More are being added to that list each day. They say we have turned the corner. You believe that? Driving a great distance so others can make a profit? I'll have to think long and hard about that one. GAC and the for profit folks, may have to adjust the camera angle. Fewer troops, less money. I know they say it isn't about the numbers, but quality. I may agree with that accessment. But for those folks who count the money I'll bet they have a different view. You say I need a new and different uniform to play-----------Put that expense on those who make the money, not the Average Joe just trying to get there and promote History. Central Casting called yet another uniform to buy? Think not. Money may not be concern for some as long as someone else is spending it. Who knows by the start of the 150 Nationals, cost of living like this hobby may be affordable for the Average Joe. Now my question-who set the bar, and who's turn is it to buy.
