When I was first on this forum, (ya'll remember) I received a fair amount of flack. I understood it then and now. I also understand that we have received good and bad publicity. I remember someone posting that we where taking deposits and running to Mexico or something to that effect. I cannot control everything that gets posted online, nor can I please everyone that I meet. I try to be as honest as I can, and take the flack for it if I must (IE no propane)
The article ( Alan Smoak builds small, lightweight, fiberglass "Lil Snoozy" camper trailer | RV News from RVBasics .com
) is actually a reprint from our local news paper. My father is well known and respected in the community and when the Times and Democrat (the original publisher of the article) heard he was at it again they wanted to do a story.
The other articles listed I cannot attest to. As I am sure you all know my fathers name IS Alan Smoak and my name is Nicholas Smoak (some people do call me Nick)
The FORMER member in question has the same first name as my father as well as a similar last name. He also received some flack for his postings, he decided to refrain from posting. We have someone who is well known on the forum visiting next week, we share the same first name, will he be confused with me?
Angie, I am sorry for the confusion you have had to deal with. I have done what I can to be as honest and forth coming as I possibly can. I do not have control over the internet, nor can I control who post what where.
AS has been stated above, we have an open plant policy. Anyone who wants to see how we do things or meet me and the old man, give me a call and let me know when you want to come.
Thanks again to everyone on the forum that has giving their constructive criticism and ideas.
On a completely unrelated note, and I will make a new thread for this topic. Leslie and I had so much fun at the Pocanos that we are thinking of "hosting" a ralley in Cherokee NC, sometime around end of September maybe?
