I concur. Perhaps it's time we start seriously talking about the 2014 TDIFest someplace closer to us.

It's not the miles, it's the time. Over 2800 miles and 42 hours on the road (for me) each way (and another couple of hours for romad). That's 3 days at 14 hours a day on the road or 4 days at 10.5 hours a day. Therefore we are talking about 8 days on the road for a 3 day event. It might be different if I had friends or family in New England, but...

Have Fun!

So fly out, you guys in the West. There are enough New Englanders around that we can get you to Sunday River from Boston or Portland, I bet. Or rent a car. It'll be faster and cheaper than driving.

Fred has a thread here for the 2014 Fest: It would be great to have one on the West Coast.

I'm wicked excited that this has come together. Many thanks to all who have been involved in the preliminary work. Late August/early September should have great weather with days in the 70/80's and night in the 60's. The bugs are usually gone by then too.

A trip up the Mt. Washington road for sure and I've plotted out 2 other tours through the western Maine mountains. Great drives, little traffic and lots of turns and scenic views.

The hotel is excellent and really offers tons of activities right on site. I realize this may be too far east for some but remember that for some like folks in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and parts of Quebec will be traveling west. It an easy drive from Montreal and parts of Ontario. It's about 13 hours from Detroit so east of the Mississippi should be do-able for folks in the US.

Can'twait for the fun to begin!

I was up in that area during the summer of 81, a beautiful place. I spent a month starting in the Boston area then all across Maine. Then a few weeks running around the Merritines of Canada. That last time I was up there was summer of 87, spent a couple of weeks with my first wife running around VT, NH, ME, Quebec, and New Brunswick.

I would love!!! to work out getting back to area for this. But a lot of things will have to go into place for me to make it....

We were in that neck of the woods in 1979 driving my '69 VW Beetle.

Well, we are still planning a road trip to Alaska with the departure to be no later than July 5th. We have to be back in time for the arrival of our third grand child in mid-August.

The timing will be cutting it close, but if all goes well with the new addition to the family, we will be there!

I believe the activities will be awesome!

It would be a Fest without you! Maybe I'll have a crack at the Show 'N Shine. That's of course if the V's drive up in their Subaru

Being 6+ months out, you can't switch with someone or request the time off?
