I'd love to see a Fest in Montreal. I've never been there, but heard it is nice. It would be an excellent excuse to head up there.

Last time Anita and I were in Montreal, customs was just fine. Asked us why we were going to Canada: Answer - Family. Next, When was the last time you were in Canada: Answer- 2 years ago. End of questions.

The real pain was driving back into the U.S. in N.Y. state. Some very small border crossing with a 2 car wait. They insisted everybody open their trunk and looked 2 or 3 times at everything. Those customs fellows had WAY too much time on their hands. I live in San Diego. San Diego is the busiest border crossing in the country. We may wait in line for 4 hours each time we come home, BUT customs does not rip every car open. And the San Ysidro border crossing is 24 lanes wide just for cars. Plus we have a second border crossing in Otay Mesa that is mainly for truck, so it is another 4 lanes for cars only. End of rant.

Canadian customs was just fine! Have your passport or passport card and there will not be an issue.

BTW, am I the only one who noticed that April Fools day could be the big announcement date for the 2015 TDIFest?

Tomorrow is suppose to be announcement day!

No Fools Day announcement, please!

Side notes:

I crossed the border going north in North Dakota last summer ...... no problems at all (memorize your license plate number).

I crossed back into the USA on the west end of Montana (near Glacier National Park, no issue at all!

And, in 2013 after the TDI Fest in Bethel, Maine, we went to the coast of Maine eventually crossing over to Campobello Island, Canada (do a Google, interesting). No issue going or coming back. Then we went on to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and then back to the USA ......... no issue crossing borders.

As John Jackson said, just make sure you have your Pass Port ready as they will ask for it. Also, other papers should be readily available in case they ask for them: title, registration, insurance, driver's license, etc.

Happy motoring....

We've got the location all figured out and pretty much ready to roll, but there are just a few more t's to cross and i's to dot before we can post the official announcement. Since this would lead us into April 1st and we want to avoid the whole April fools thing, we'll post details on April 2nd

Sorry to keep you in a couple more days of suspense.

In order to request early vacation for summer, I'd need to put in the request no later than tomorrow. Is the date range still Labor Day weekend?

We had a great site visit this weekend (I just got home 20 minutes ago). Expectations were exceeded and we are really looking forward to Fest this Labor Day weekend! Dates will be September 4th, 5th, and 6th. I recommend adding a day or three on either end to make the most of your vacation.

If you're driving from California, you may want to set aside two full weeks.

The anticipation is killing me since I can and will attend this year. I have to work every other weekend and this year the schedule falls just right so I have it off.

Two weeks from California? Tells me it is on the east coast, possibly New England. Not D.C. area. Montreal is a nice 2 week trip for those of us in Southern California. Our last trip to Montreal was 6000 miles round trip and 18 days.
