Yep. I wish I had pics from one of the trips back to Michigan in the Jetta after Ho5G. It was pretty white knuckle through Erie, PA. So far, I've had pretty good luck with auto show GTG weather.

I remember the 1st time I went with you Lawson that the Passat had some bad tires on it.......and it snowed just enough.....the indents are probably still in that right rear armrest.....

Yeah that was exciting. First thing we did in Ypsi was go to Costco and buy new tires.

Those stock Hankooks were total garbage.

Just over a month left to book your hotel rooms, folks.

The link to book is in the first post, and it expires on December 19th.

I'm in - normally driving bus that weekend to Winter Retreat for senior highers, but going to beg off this year - hopefully bringing one or two of my TDI helpers too - I'll know for sure my next week (on them) Lawson. And then make reserv's.
