I went to the hotel today to look around. They have some great isolated lots that would look great filled with TDIs and [other] diesels. I can see pulling a "mini-fest" together for 2017.

Besides. 1997 was the first year of TDI, wasn't it? I know I started calling my dealer for a Windsor Blue Jetta, Orlando package and dark interior in 1997.

I'm willing to step up if there is interest.

1996 was the first year. We celebrated 20 years of TDIClub last year.

D'oh! 2/3 of my TDIs are '96es.

I'm talking to the events planner this afternoon.

This is starting to look like another transcontinental trip for me. Should be able to get Anita to go this time if we stop in Montreal, then head to Halifax after the TDIFest. If nothing else, she would fly to Montreal and have me pick her up there.

I suppose I could visit my family in Connecticut if this really kicks off. I drove there in April in my 2003 Jetta (by myself) and it was a nice 3,700 mile round trip ride. Plus, I had some quiet time to myself.

Upstate NY would be nice and maybe cooler than Texas in September.

I'd have to debate which diesel I'd show up with - the Golf or the JSW. We're now a 6 diesel household (3 TDIs, a diesel side by side, and 2 Ford diesel tractors).

As for location, I'm open to wherever, so long as it's nothing remote like northern Idaho, Montana, or Maine (even though I love Maine and would probably still make the trip, anyways). And I'll also pass on Upper Cracktown.

The way things are going is that I would show up without a diesel. We are looking at 2017 Jetta TSI's right now and I will have the 1971 Beetle if that falls through. No A/C in the old beetle though.

That is more acceptable than a gas powered CHEVY HHR. Lore has it a certain member here showed up at a Fest in a HHR and lived to tell the tale...

I would guess if you parked it at the back side of the hotel and covered over the "Chevy Cruze" emblems.

(I should talk...I'm fresh out of diesels right now)

I'd personally prefer more remote, but I'm continually reminded that I'm not like most......
