Hahaha. Maybe we should have an award for highest average speed.

Unfortunately i'll be missing out on another fest.. Portland is quite a bit too far outside of the realm of possibility for next year.

Oh well, hopefully we can get it going in Chicago for '11.

I have good friends in Mountain Top, PA (Wilkes Barre). Its a shame, they make really great, what is a safe word, Spirits/firewater perhaps. I might try your wormhole on the way home it would be worth the long ride home.

The drive really can't get much better for us. Out of TX, through CO, touching WY, SLC, and across OR. Make the full circle down through CA, touching the 1 perhaps. Straight across AZ and NM. Could be one of the best drives I'll experience in the country.

And who do I have to thank for planning these TDIFests at the same time as my anniversary? I DO appreciate the idea of that!

I am so excited that the 2010 TDI-fest will be in Portland I will finally be able to attend a TDI fest, Kudos to the crew that put the proposal together , Zippy, Phil, Pierre, Jetpuff, Justin and everybody else involved. I am sure that Portland will be an awsome place to have the fest in the West Coast, ..Great work guys.

Now I have to figure out the logistics of getting to and from Portland. I want to drive out there with Jason, see the country along the way, then pop up and visit my mom's family in Seattle after Fest... but I don't know if we can take 3 weeks off of work. (Well, I can, but I don't think Jason can.)

Has anyone with alternate transportation thought to put their car on a train or truck, then fly out here, pick up their car, and drive it back??

For those who are intrigued about the possibility of attending the PDX fest but aren't sure how to get there. There are options. Drive, plane, train.

I've flown out to the last 3 fests ('07, '08, '09), it can be done... and for relatively cheap. I'm poor, I shop for cheap tickets... and I'm just that stubborn and determined enough to make it to fest that I find ways. It can be done, just gotta do the research. I REALLY hope to see many of you there. Matter of fact... I look forward to it. It's the highlight of my year.

for the NE'ers... come to the left coast and let me show you why I wanted to move out here in the first place.

Driving a TDI is fun and if you have 2 people, it would be a quick trip, work as a team just like the big rigs, no log books.

This will be a flying trip for me. I don't think Cheryl and I like each other enough to drive that far together.

Well I dont think I want to go by train (too claustrophobic), nor by plane (too claustrophobic, too "fluffy" and too much of a wuss) so if I do go, I would be driving.

It would be a beautiful drive, and my wife was already hoping for Portland as she goes through Chicago all the time. But we will have to see what work/money/school dictates at that time. I'm sure the PDX crew will put on an excellent event.

YA HOO , Its been 16 years since I've been to Portland, and 28 years since I've driven a car across the USA. Back then it took two months. I better get packing. Sounds like its road trip time.

I actually like New England better than almost anyplace I've ever been, that's why it's 'home' for me.

My last time to Portland was Dean's & my '93 cross-country bicycle trip. It was almost 3,000 miles, and took us 2months from Ocean Grove, NJ to Seaside, Oregon. The whose-car-to-drive debate continues and get it trip-ready!, 'tho I think I can guess....
Looking forward to the Agenda & Hotel pictures!
Congrats to all, and good luck. I know it'll be good.
