I wish I could go, but I really don't want to drop almost 300 bucks on a room, cause I'm broke as hell. Hoping there is a TDI Fest this year, and hoping it's close to me!

There might be someone willing to split a room with you. There are also some less expensive hotels in town. Be sure to check online reviews before booking, as a few of them are pretty sketchy (the Days Inn on Carpenter Road is pretty nasty).

I was willing to share my room (posted here about that on Dec. 1st in this thread) but the deadline for making/changing the reservation at the group discount has passed (it was Dec. 19, 2017) so if I made a change to it now to accommodate a roommate it will cost me more out of pocket now. Sorry I can't help you split the cost now and hope you have luck finding a suitable quality budget friendly hotel in the area.

As for a TDI Fest very unlikely one will happen in 2018 way it looks now. For a while there looked like Texas might have hosted a Fest but that is now off the table. There is a separate section/thread here about 2018 Fest possibilities. Check it out for the details.

Did you call? I doubt it since you have the room reserved and only adding another person. NEVER met a hotel that wouldn't accommodate a guest withing reason.

You should be able to modify your reservation without penalty.

I'll get on this tonight to see about modifying my reservation as I would be glad to share my room with you. (Never heard back from that other guy.) We've met before as I rode with you in your Beetle from the Lake Mills, WI Fest and across Lake Michigan on the SS Badger to Ludington, MI. That was a number of years ago! Will shoot you a PM this evening.

I love it when a plan comes together.

Although just so you guys know, while our room block is now closed, the hotel still has regular bookings available for that weekend.

Exclamation Important update

I have updated the event schedule for Saturday, January 20th...


Saturday, January 20th:

7:00am - 8:00am: Breakfast @ The Bomber
9:00am - 1:00pm: Meet @ Cobo Center lobby & auto show
1:30pm - 2:30pm: Lunch at Buddy's Pizza
2:45pm - 5:30pm: The Henry Ford. The two options are The Henry Ford Museum and The River Rouge Ford Factory Tour
6:30pm - midnight: Hang out at hotel, dinner, Cards Against Humanity, whatever!

I recommend that everyone purchase tickets for either the museum or the factory tour now. I don't know how many are available, so the sooner you get your ticket, the better. We will be doing the 3pm tour, which is the last one of the day. I didn't see a place to specify a time when buying my tickets, so I suppose you just show up whenever.

https://www.thehenryford.org/visit/f...ets-and-hours/

Lunch will be at the Buddy's Pizza in Dearborn, MI, which is right around the corner from the Ford complex.

Buddy's Pizza
22148 Michigan Ave.
Dearborn, MI 48124

BeetleGo - successfully modified my reservation so you are officially my roommate now. Just sent you a PM with details about same so the plan has come together!

Tomo - been cold here (NW Indiana / SW Michigan) with snow almost every day since Christmas. Sure can use a break from the snow which I hope coincides with this GTG.
