Hi, Matt! Where were you in Oregon? We drove up to Eugene on Sunday, then to Albany on Monday morning. Watched the eclipse in the parking lot of a diner there where we ate breakfast. By 10:25 A.M. we were on the way home to Oroville. With 2 bio-breaks and dinner at Outback in Chico, we arrived home just before 7:00 P.M.

We left the A3 home this time for the 15-hour bash to Oregon for the eclipse!
I did the same trip last April in the Audi and everyone's butts did not enjoy it!
My daughters and I rented a 2017 Subaru Crosstrek instead.

My mom just bought a place in coastal Oregon, South of Newport.

It was clear every day in the window the eclipse would be in until the day of, it was fogged in bad.

I poked around on the map and found a park that looked interesting and a bit further inland, unlikely to be too busy. It was called (somewhat appropriately) Moonshine State Park. Pretty little spot on the Siletz river, had a fantastic view, we were only a few seconds shy of 2 minutes of totality there. Would have been only about 40 seconds of totality where we were South of Newport.

Pretty amazing experience!

Back from Hawai'i, sunburned, but had fun. Rented a convertible Mustang GT for a day, did some snorkeling, swimming and otherwise just a chill time. Had a few Mai Tais.

Back to it. Probably 7 days a week for a couple months to get some big projects done and hopefully finally get the parking situation cleared up some. Even working today (Labor day). Figure I already had my fun time off recently. At least I could have a day without traffic to and from the shop thanks to the holiday.

Matt is. He's still wrenching the same place in San Anselmo and still a ridiculous bargain for this area.

Shout out and thanks to Matt for handling a walk-in check on my Golf today for odd sound with my engine, and seeing what I had missed, that the alternator belt was self-destructing and the alternator pulley was frozen... our Bay Area TDI community is lucky to have him here!

Hey all. Matt is still wrenching away. The landlord got REALLY picky about some cars hanging out too long, so he's stuck working on said project until it's done. Plus she's trying to sell the building. If you've tried to inquire about work getting done and haven't gotten a reply, that's likely why. We fit the occasional job in on the weekends. Please be patient with us! <3

Does Matt do weekend appointments? I’ve got a no start with quantity adjuster code issue on my 02 Golf. Sadly I’m only off weekends.
