Wow! West coast TDI fest! I'm so psyched! I was a little torn though, being born and raised in Chicago (U of Illinois Class of 07!). I agree, Chicago has gotten no love this year (Olympics, now this).
Portland is an awesome town though. I'll have to strap on my bicycle to the roof rack and ride around the best city in the US for biking!
Hey BleachedBora, I'm going to be attending the U of Utah next fall so I should be in the SLC area. I would love to join in on the caravan...

And for those who are interested in drag racing, most likely the PNW crew may have a TDI race at PIR, be we aware of that, you may want to bring your cars to the Fest.

That's a negative, ghost rider. PIR is completely booked up with events that weekend. no drag races there ...BUT... we're working on another option with a different track, stay tuned for more details.

Gaawd, I detest psychology!
Off Topic:
Wow, Jon... Wow! not only do you "insult" my decsion to move to to the left coast but then continue to "insult" my my primary coarse of study. Gee, Thanks. I can feel the love.
But you see....I neither need nor seek any form of validation for my life's decisions, especially not by proxy. I'm far too direct for that. I simply enjoy sharing my world with other members of the (as you so egocentrically put it) "Hub of the Universe" and beyond. That is not approval seeking behavior for an implied "error." That, my friend, is an oportunity for a mutually beneficial worldly education for some who may not always have the chance or who may be uncomfortable making the first step to begin with. So please, stop over analyzing, Freud, and leave the real psychology to the experts.

TDIFEst Portland! WOO HOO!
Damn I gotta work on making that logo a little smaller... sheesh!

Not that you need validation, but I have to jump in to say you made the correct choice. That's why I came back as I got older and wiser. No ifs, ands or buts.

Big shout out to you and the others for bringing the fest to our beautiful part of the country.

And decent bagels you don't have to search around for. According to my husband, no decent bagels exist outside of the greater NYC area. Same goes for pizza.

Kinda sorta--I hit MT from ND and set the cruise on 115. Slowed down to 100 as I got near Billings and got pulled over. Had to post $40 bail and was on my way, did not hit my record.

This is on par with what I was told before I went through Montana, which is why I drove that fast. Just make sure you have cash on you or you will be riding with the officer into town.

As far as the US goes, best place to go fast on a public road .
