Having breakfast at the Bomber with Jason's parents. Settling up with the hotel when we get back, then pack up the car and head home!

I got home at 7pm last night. Total distance to and from the fest for me was 3,998 miles by air, 36 miles in a rental Malibu, and 24 miles in a Prius Taxi. Thankfully all the driving around at the fest was in TDIs and I'm back home and driving my TDI again.

Wow!

I saw the picture before reading the caption and thought that happened while you were towing it home.

Nice progress! You've definitely been busy.

Think how bad it would have been if growler, myself, and the gentleman from Iowa hadn't loaded up......

I assume Aaron and the Passat wagon brigade are making a pit stop at your place on the way home??

I was looking at that wagon and thinking how much I liked the color!!!!
