Anyone have experience with Templatic Directory Theme?

Unfortunately I have a year's worth of experience with Templatic theme and I wonder if anyone else has had experience. Ridiculously thinking to try it on a multisite which I have no experience with. I have researched every directory theme/plugin that I can find and there's not one that has the functionality that I'd like. I will have to pay for another year of support and updates for Templatic and just not sure it's worth it..... It would probably have been more productive if I'd spent the same amount of time learning PHP
Any developers out there who have experience? This is the current site: http://www.SandhillsGuide.com. Thanks
