    Long Weekend in Santa Fe/Taos | ~1600 miles | MKVI Golf

    I decided to intro this trip report the day before leaving since I won't have time tomorrow until I update while on the road. I've had quite a few people over the years tell me how cool/weird/artsy/yummy Santa Fe is and I figured a long weekend would be a good way to get a taste of the...

    Quick trip in the MKVI for a day hike.

    Decided to go for a birthday hike last weekend in my favorite area in OK...the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. I found an old mine, cave, and waterfall. I think I did about 6.5miles over some pretty rough terrain, but I was definitely going slow and just enjoying the views. I made a quick...

    I'm having a hard time locating the Cimtek 70025 1 micron fuel filters for the contain flow system....for a reasonable price. Amazon lists them for $100 plus shipping per filter.

    VW to pull out of the WRC

    Seems weird as they have utterly dominated the WRC for the last 4 years, but racing is expensive.
