About 625 miles total for us, but with a couple of stops along the way to visit with friends in Marlborough, MA and Alexandria, NH.

Add us to the list, we are also making the trip... We will take one leg of the run off of I-80 though.

The miles will be recorded at the fest. And the award presented at the banquet.

We did the PDX fest and won NH to Or.

I re-mapped it, considering the fact we'll be spending the weekend before we leave at Waterwerks on the Bay in Richmond, CA.

So, including that trek to the Bay Area, 3481 mi.

Technically the mileage should be counted from your home to the Fest. Side trips and starting from not your home should not be counted. (My $0.02)
Otherwise PeterV might circle the state of NH a few times before heading to Maine!

That is the mileage from home. If we take I-80 and avoid as many toll roads through NY.

Not to far for me, only 5 hours and about 250 miles right up the coast. Should be a nice little drive if I can get the time off from work. Just picked up my TDi and I would love to go up to this big meet!

Just watch out for NY state troopers they love to pull people over from out of state.

Speak for yourself.... Mine is closer to 700! Guess that's what happens when we don't always live in the same state...
