i'll second that one. One of the reasons why Montreal was chosen is b/c it will be one of the last years to be able to hop the border in a vehicle WITHOUT a passport. So you should be good this year. Although, i would still carry some sort of alternate ID with you, JIC.

You could bum rides for the entire duration of the Fest - I did just that for 2005 at Lake Mills. Only need to line up someone to pick you up at the airport and rest can be made up as you go. Won't need a rental car that way which will also save you a few bucks.

Montreal is an ideal venue! I hope to be there! I'll block out my schedule... I'm guessing its 2,000 miles from Houston to Montreal, but Montreal is worth every mile!

Yep, 2000 miles from Houston. Now if we can get a carpool or caravan across the country that would be great. Imagine 5 to 10 TDIs in a row doing 45mph all the way to Montreal from Houston, just to see who gets the best mileage. Ok, maybe 55mph.

Hurray! Glad to hear that next year's Fest is in the works!
Good luck to the organizers. It will be worth all the hard work.
Here's a hearty "Thank You!" in advance.

Just under 1000 miles. Hmmmmm. Have to consult the Missus. After Boston, she said "never again!"

Of course, that was in the Golf. I now have a luxury highway cruiser!

Absolutely love this idea, but must say I failed miserably when I tried to arrange one up to Toronto in '03 Ended dieseling up solo and was truly bummed at the missed opportunity to ride in a TDI caravan of 10+ (20+?!) oil burners....

This time around, from a bivouac area somewhere near Albany NY, we could easily be able to assemble 20 to 30 TDI's for a morning's ride North to the Great White....Oh Canada!

Kudos and congrats to the winning bid team members.

Welcome everybody. And, no excuse for me too; I'll be there!

And for those who want to explore a little bit more north, Quebec City, 2h north east from Montreal, is the only fortified city (defence walls) in North America. It is like a little bit of France in NA. Don't hesitate to ask if you want to make plans.
