I think part of the Kickstarter problem was me. I quoted the project out and did all of the financial calculations. We weren't in it to make a bunch of money - just some beer or dinner money for the families - but we didn't want to lose money. That meant I had to err a bit on the side of higher costs. It would be pretty easy to have conditions change a bit and and up needing to shell out a few thousand dollars out of pocket. That would be bad.
