I would say myself and my wife are in. sounds like a good time.

any idea about costs per person? does it get cheaper with a larger group? or is the group size/number of cars limited?

I won't be able to make it to the fest but.

I'm not 100% sure if they close down the auto rd for weather but don't rule out 65-70 mph winds with 10ft visibility.

I was up in Errol NH this past weekend and drove thru a storm that dumped an 1.5" of rain in under 45 min, with 30+ MPH winds in the valley and then sunny the next.

It's a rare day when the weathers perfect up there.

Wasn't there a timeline of Fest events posted somewhere?
What impact will going on this drive have on attending specific Fest events?

I would expect the schedule to be adjusted if needed, provided there's enough interest in this event to make it happen. IIRC, minimum 30 people needed.

No impact at all. Agenda will be posted later tonight or tomorrow when I'm done tweaking it.

So the cog rail locomotives are powered by biodiesel? Well, two can play at that game!

I was there a few weeks ago, but the buggers classed my VW LT as a "motor home" and wouldn't let me up. The darn thing climbed all kinds of 15% grades in the Bavarian alps.....I think the average grade there is only 9%.

Good numbers for only having the poll open for a couple of days. I'm going to call the auto road in a little bit and get some more information from them regarding weather policies and whatnot... then I'll seal the deal!
