I was reading something the other day on one of his links,,he has been in over 200 papers and more than 20 odd T.V appearances over the 14 state journey so far,,,it sounds like it was a quiet send off in Portland.

I would not condemn Dixie Chopper for this. It sounds like a poorly planned event which was destined to fail. If it was truly backed by Dixie Chopper, i would imagine a chase truck would have been present. It would not make sense for them to allow it to fail.

You d@mn right!!! And the story would be plastered all over everything Dixie Chopper.

You would have never heard the end of that until they went out of business or someone else went further on a different brand.
