OT.

One of my favorite things when I was stationed in Nürnberg was stopping at a corner in the Alt Stadt and having 2 bratwurst on a Brötchen with mustard; it was especially good in the winter!

If we pick up some of this, can we have a camp fire Brat party?

Default Regrets.....

Cheryl and I have discussed this extensively........
We both are facing some health issues, both new and chronic. While we will miss you all madly, we just cannot face the twenty hour drive. We also feel it is better to stay closer to home while we work with our MDs to stabilize our conditions.

Good news. I'm a TDIClub member. I've already met my commitment to help purchase the fest pins, along with the V's and Tom. I've got rafflle/auction items to send y'all, just tell me where.

Y'all can keep the banquet payment. Consider it postage to send me the goodie bag with the T shirts. . If only I can get someone to stuff it with vendor goodies....

Good lunch to the new auctioneer and huckster!

Bruce and Cheryl

Bruce,

That is most unfortunate news! I hope you and Cheryl take it easy and find yourselves in good health again soon. I'll make a post reaching out for an auctioneer - we have some big shoes to fill!

Greetings everyone!

Just a reminder that we have one week left in July. This means that you have one week left to take advantage of our bonus raffle ticket offer by registering before August 1st.

The next deadline following that is August 9th, which is the free t-shirt cutoff. Anyone registering for TDIFest by the end of the day on August 9th will get a free TDIFest t-shirt with their order.

Finally, one in my home town! I am happy to give local tours and hook anyone up with the non-tourista places to see and eat at if interested!

That's cool! You should start a thread with some top tips.

I would like to spend part of a day driving around some back mountain roads, preferably of the unpaved variety.

I can take on on the track of the NE forest rally... Doesn't get any better than that! You have a skid plate?!? I'll start a thread momentarily!

I have a Touareg. Does that count? The Passat has a skid plate, but it is staying home this year (unless the Touareg decides that it needs maintenance... You never know ).

Haha! You'll be fine with that beast. 100's of miles of logging roads to show you! I just posted a couple on-road routes for folks as well that are on my favorites list.
