What happens at the Fest stays at the Fest!

Just kidding. Look back through the pictures of past Fests and you'll get a good idea. It's a GREAT time.

This is what happened at TDIFest 2013: http://wiki.tdifest.com/doku.php?id=tdifest2013:start

For any of you adventurous types who stumble upon the 2015 page, it is still under construction. I will post a link to it once we get a few things finalized and all of the information is up-to-date.

Following up on the losers in the lobby pic, which is traditionally people hanging out in the lobby to use WiFi, the hotel has good WiFi everywhere, so you can get your fix anywhere - not just the lobby.

Also, the only cell phone provider with reliable service on the mountain is Verizon. AT&T is spotty and Sprint doesn't work at all.

Here is a Verizon LTE speed test:

Hmmmmmm.....
It's a big maybe for me at this point. I'd love to make it, but at this point there's too many variables for me this far out.

Fuel Economy: Who cares? It's a DIESEL! Great fuel economy comes as a bonus!
Thumbs up

N1DAS & g/f Lisa --> IN.

Looking forward to TDIfest2015!! Count us in!

I'm planning to bring the 2014 BMW 535d to the 'fest like I did in 2013. In 2013 I had picked up the 535d about 2 weeks before TDIfest2013.
