I've driven the auto road a few times and think climbing it in winter is much easier on the nerves. Those drop offs are hairy.

Not to say I wouldn't do it again, so I'm in.

I'm hoping to get a few minutes to design the logo tomorrow night and will post it when I get something

Climbing in the winter sounds like a fun adventure, I would love to do that one day. I also heard there's 2 back country ski/snowboard trails going down the mountain, and they are certainly not for the faint of heart with 30 or so ft drop offs and such. Id still like to give them a try one of these winters.

Just got an email back from the folks at the Auto Road. They haven't verified that the road is available on our chosen date (August 31st), but they will know for sure tomorrow morning and we can go from there.

Catering is not available after hours, so that opening isn't possible. We'll have to make other meal plans for Saturday night... I'm thinking dinner on your own, as there are numerous excellent eateries and restaurants in the area (small local things, no chains).

I'll have more details and firm pricing tomorrow after our phone call.

It's proving pretty tough to find a good high res image of the Auto Road logo. This is the best I could get, so post one up if you can find a bigger one to use.

This is what I came up with just playing around in paint. I can't seem to choose a font, there's just so many lol. This one was inspired by the usual sticker you get for going up the mountain. I didnt have the time to change every pixel of color to the same to represent what would be "sticker" color, but you get the idea.

Just to clarify, "sticker" is what I use to refer to the part that sticks on the surface, and will be whatever color vinyl we choose. "Negative" space is the spots that are not "sticker" but function as part of the total image.

Colors shown above:

Black: Sticker
Green: Sticker
White: Negative
Blue: Negative

I left an original logo on the bottom for anyone who happens to have more photoshop experience (and the program itself...) than I do. I'm going to work on it more tomorrow and think about how I can integrate the "TDIFest 2013" into it.

The group drive on the Mt. Washington Auto Road has been CONFIRMED!

Anyone interested in participating in this event should log into the registration system at http://reg.tdifest.com and edit your registration to add this event. Remember to add it for each person in your party who wants to do the group drive, even if he/she is only a passenger.

Cancellation Policy: We will ONLY cancel the group drive in the event of unsafe weather conditions on the Auto Road, as determined by Auto Road staff.

Restrooms: Restrooms are only available at the base of the mountain. There will be no restrooms available at the summit, as the National Park building will be closed. Please plan accordingly.

Driving Restrictions: Our group will be lead by an Auto Road van and followed by an Auto Road van. The Auto Road encourages everyone to have fun, but please no speeding, showing off, or otherwise acting like a fool. The Auto Road is both challenging and dangerous, and it is not an appropriate place to practice your racing skills. Also keep in mind that the general public will be leaving the mountain (going down) while we are going up, as they are all required to leave the summit at 6:45 PM. I don't know how many people this will be, but be prepared to encounter some traffic as we ascend the mountain. Going down, it will be all ours.

Any questions? Let me know!

DONE! I updated Lisa's and my registration.

I'm trying to find out where my BMW is....it was due to arrive TODAY at the port in NJ. BMWusa.com website still shows it as "En route to US" status. I've been checking on it every few hours. I'm getting antsy waiting for it.

I did the same when ordering my 2011. I annoyed the hell out of my sales guy to the point he promised to email me weekly updates. Its really awesome to order a car, but the waiting sucks. How long has it been?

Not intending to derail the thread since the answer is O/T...order went in July 1 and things progressed faster than expected. Last info was it was due to arrive at the port TODAY in NJ and then it's another 5-10 days of waiting until it arrives at my BMW dealer.

I'm hoping to have it in time for TDIfest and to drive it up the Mt. Washington Auto Road.

It's $30 per person, even if they are riding along as a passenger. My g/f Lisa is riding with me and I paid $60 after updating our registrations.
