Default Home!!!

Walked in the house about 30 minutes ago. No issues other than an hour flight delay in SLC

Great time. Nice to see old friends, and meet new friends. Thanks.

I also made it home, enough time to mow the yard before dark. Oregon was beautiful.

Just got home less than an hour ago. Flight was delayed at PDX resulting in a scramble to make my connection (which was delayed slightly). Flew Delta, had to change planes in Atlanta (!) in spite of the fact that MSP is one of their larger hubs.

Spending the night in Sacramento. Half way home to San Diego.

Experimented with a 55 mph cruise speed. 478 miles and a 9.689 fill up to the very top of the fill tube. 48.8 mpg - Whoopee!

Next leg home will be at 2500 rpm or around 70 mph all the way home.

Had a really good time seeing faces to match with names.

My better half met up with another wife - Mary. They had a great time telling each other how little they knew about the TDI's.

Anita and I will both be looking forward to TDIFest 2011.

Arrived at home yesterday at 10:30. took the scenic route through Klamath Falls. It's good to be able to do over 600 miles on a tank again! The New Beetle ran flawlessly.

I ended driving straight through (17.5 hours) and made it home about 12:30 AM this morning. I think I really like the seats in my JSW, my a$$ did not hurt a bit (unlike my old air cooled VWs). I averaged almost 41mpg which I figure is pretty good considering it was mostly 75 and 80 mph speed limits and mostly through the mountains. It was a pleasure putting faces with so many names I have come to know.

Kudos to the organizing committee - excellent job!

Have Fun!

Don

I dragged my a$$ in the door about 10pm Monday evening. Took about 11 hours with a quick food stop, and an emergency icepack stop to bring the temp down in the gecko tank!

I was VERY grateful to have a second driver to chauffeur me home. I wouldn't have made it home with out her. We took alternating turns driving and sleeping. tho, she did most of the driving and i did most of the sleeping.

I'm glad people are posting when they're getting home. I know so many of you came to join us from SO far away. It's good to know that you're safe and sound. Thanks for coming out and joining us!
