Do it. You, me, TooRoundTDI, GTiTDi, and Pod too. On the deck. In thunderstorms.

One of the best memories from '13.

Probably should comment! I am super excited this is happening. We have some great leadership here at the TDIClub and a lot of people willing to lend a hand and serve. Not sure if I will be able to make it yet due to the fact that I have about 9 weddings to attend this year, but I am confident it will go off without a hitch. VeeDub...you have my number and I would love to help in any way possible.

I have full intention of going this year. I have owned my TDI now for 9 months and so, and have been on the forum the whole time. Can't wait to make the 900 mile trip from Northwest Ohio.

Having done the initial research for which car I wanted to get as my first; and then learning a LOT from the accumulated wisdom of members here... I am very excited to drive my way over to Maine for September.

Abacus, this is not QUITE the "meet up in Maine" plans we tried to have for this year... but I think it is a worthy alternative, no?

Is there any decent and nearby camping... or is the hotel as nice and worth it as the pictures earlier in this thread make it seem?

I am retired and am certainly not afraid of a long drive, but I was wondering if the fest is ever held out west. It seems that most of the members here are east of the Mississippi, but you guys might like the long drive also. We do have the Grand Canyon and Sedona around here...Mark

The hotel and surrounding grounds are really nice, as well, rooms booked under the TDIFest banner help with the costs of the function space

Once booking is open, I'll be looking at the Thursday to Tuesday on that weekend

It has, the last time was 2010 in Portland OR. The location is very dependant on the group of members who organize themselves to host the fest.

TDIClub would love to go West, and we have before. All it takes is member commitment to pull one off.

I would love to come out West, Midwest, Western Canada!

Yeah! I spent many summers working for Hurricane Island Outward Bound and we would jump/swim there all the time. We would always joke about the people who stopped to take pictures at the covered bridge posted earlier in this thread.

Subscribed...let's see who's up to driving with me, or I joining a caravan with others from Southern California? Could be quite an adventure.

Update: My TDI, wife, and I will be moving to Lake County, Illinois within a month, as I got a new job there. Unemployed only two months. Phew!! Not much vacation time for 2015, so I won't be making it to TDIFest in Maine.
