Hey, looks like I will be moving back to Thunder Bay in march, it will be y first time up there with the Jetta, just wondering if anyone on here lives in that area, and how the TDI handles the cold snaps. I lived in Tbay for awhile, so I am familiar with the weather, just curious if I'll have any trouble with the car through the winter. I plan to install a frostheater before next winter.

I went to college there 04-06, now I'm heading back for work. Been down south for the winters, but north in the summers for the last few years.

It has been 23 years since I have lived there.
I guess you took the pilot couse there
Does Sid still teach there?

He was still there when I was there, and for sure he was there for the 06/07 year, but there was talk of him retiring after that, I'm not sure if he did or not. You go thru the same course?

Yea, he told us that story. The plane is still flying, in Sioux Lookout now. I worked for the company that owns it this summer.
