sure ya can! it'll just be more expensive. Going to TDIFest without your TDI isn't as terrible as it sounds. just means that you have to ask for a ride, instead of giving them. ... to the local attractions and separate group meet up's, of course.

I do not doubt that it will be a good show, last 2 years that I have been to GTG in PDX, I have seen way more TDI's there on the freeway than here, and also in the Seattle area, so I am very sure there will be a good showing for all the TDI's at the fest.

90 days to wait!

I've revised my travel plans. I had been thinking of 1000 mile days (about 20 hours with breaks), but now I'm thinking 800 miles (about 16 hrs).
