Safe Travels / Bon Voyage
 
In the words of Paul Simon:

Well, I'm on my way,
I don't know where I'm going.
I'm on my way,
Taking my time, but I don't know where.

Hope you have better luck than me. I lost a head gasket 150 miles into the drive. Now, waiting at airport to the plane to be repaired.

Leaving home now (Wednesday 2 PM EDT) for TDIfest.

The v's are in Ohio resting up for the drive to the FEST!

In your Jetta, I hope, Peter, not the big unit!

In Pittsburgh overnight after filling with B100 here.
Next stop is tomorrow just west of Chicago for another top-off with Bio. It's "only" B99, I think.
There's B10 at the public pumps 24/7, but the good stuff is hidden out back and accessible during business hours only).

I had about 45 minutes of panic trying to find my Passport. But I located it. And realized after that I also have a Passport Card, so I could have used that.

Are you using the NBB app to find fuel? I only run a max of B20 in the Passat, so I'm not going to go too far out of my way to find fuel. It looks like most places have B11 and some have B20. See you on Friday.

I'm doing the 1240 mile drive straight through. EDIT: 1300 miles.

It's around 6:30 AM EDT Thursday and I'm taking a break and to get fuel at a service plaza on I-80/I-90 in Indiana, about 100 miles east of Chicago. This is my 2nd fuel stop. The 535d is returning 35 MPG while haulin' arse at 70+ on the highway. Looks like I'm ahead of the V's at the moment. :)

IIRC Illinois has a bio mandate for diesel fuel so I decided to stop for fuel while I'm still in Indiana. Max allowed bio concentration in the BMW is B7.

The weather in Green Bay is beautiful today. We just stopped at a Hardee's to get some food and take a break. Only about 50 miles and another hour to TDIfest.

EDIT: Was beautiful when we arrived. Now clouded over and gloomy looking.
