as long as "volunteer" means "Go Shopping and maybe to the Art museum" then sure, I'll sign her up. (she may kill me however, but is's for the Club!)

I tried that and didn't get a good response...wait a minute, I think I said "in our car" and not "to our car". Maybe that was it...

Montreal is a GREAT choice! Thanks to the TDIClub.com team for putting together what will certainly be a fantastic fest this year. I'm bringing some more family this time -- my daughter and mother want to come along to enjoy Canada and the nice drive up and back. Brought my son to the PA fest last year, he doesn't own a car yet but thanks to the TDIClub he's determined to buy a used Golf TDI eventually. That'll make three TDIs in the family.

Well, I'm booking enough time to make it a fun trip, instead of a rushed trip. I left Friday afternoon from Gainesville, FLORIDA to make the fest in PA. That was one long drive, both ways.

Well mapquest says 1384 miles so not as bad as I thought. I have done that before. Of course out in Nevada, Utah and Wyoming you can cover ground damn fast! No so I would imagine in northeast.

I might even be much closer by then if things go they way they look to be going at work Anyone up north need a good VW mechanic?

On the passport thing, is Canada connected in any way with UK? You know, like Aussies and Kiwis? I have my New Zealand passport but need to renew my Yankie passport.

YEH 2007 TDI FEST!!

i'll be flying in from California - flying in from the West coast of the US and Canada is possible - i too will be without my TDI, and feeling naked (shhh.. no commentary from the peanut gallery on that one! :-P). But i'll make due and ooo and awwwwe at the other TDI's (if i get a chance!).

Maybe - if i'm not too tired and crazy and stressed out from this fest, i might try to organize (or help out with) a fest on the Left coast next year. You just need a crew whose dedicated enough to want to volunteer to do it!

Fly out ,haaa. Is there a plane big enough for me to store my car on the overhead compartement? Or maybe tow it behind. lmao. Hey Zippy that would be awsome to have Fest on the warm side of the country.

A "B" Class bomber? would work just fine! then i can haul mine out there too!

Heh - Steve, i'm sure i'll find some way to get my diesel fix out there. Then again, for those who know how excited i get over torque power.... the owners of said diesels might be a little hesitant (or very encouraging??) !
