I think they had an episode that was about the Canada quarantine. One of my favorites is the back and forth dialogue "You're not my friend, guy." "You're not my guy, buddy." "You're not my buddy, friend." "You're not my friend, guy." Or another scene where a grown up Ike Broflowski is talking to an airline CSR, and she says "Oh, I'm sorry, I don't speak Canadian. Let me get someone to help you," where all that changes is the use of buddy, guy, friend, and eh.Well, with things going on over here, Im surprised south park hasnt made more episodes LOL. Whenever we get released from this crazy country, Im hoping to be able to goto one of these.
I also don't have a good place myself, but I should talk to the other guy that's local. He's not only a TDI guy, does gassers too, and he's put on a few VW events in the past.
Yeah, of which I was supposed to have meet you in 2017, and not last month, as I was AT that GTG.Not sure I'm in with being 'chosen'. My shop is not much of a meeting spot. It's off the beaten path, no close hotel/ motels.
As for Kirk Blackmore (TDIClub handle, r90sKirk) , He's in Cedarville, Michigan, North of Grand Rapids by about 30 miles. I have enjoyed a few visits there. Last time I went was October 2017 and the Friday 13th, the day before Kirk's event went poorly for me, as I spent 4 days in the hospital after trying to kill myself on a 4-wheeler. I haven't been back since, but not because of the wreck. One thing or another, and the State went bonkers over Covid... So maybe this year?
It's 2k miles each way, the car is 53 years old, it had 65 gross (not net) hp when new, I'll be at 5k feet altitude so that cuts even more power.I think I'm going to have to scratch that itching by going to the SAAB owner's convention in my Sonett.
Subscribed. We go to a truck show in Branson. The good thing is there is something for the wife and kids to do. Meeting up at the go-kart track to swap some paint is an added bonus.I can think of several venues in my area that could work well. I've never been to a TDI fest, but down here near the lake of the Ozarks would be great for summer fun, a lot of good food in the area, lots of lodging and camping areas, and etc.
There's a guy locally that put on a couple of VW fests in the past. Maybe at least we should do a gtg down in this area sometime.
I'm just thinking out loud a bit there.
This is an interesting idea. And I've never been to the Carslile show.That's not a bad thought. Carlisle PA has an import show. A PA based Saab club has one of their big to-dos during that overall show.

Will Your Club Measure Up? Take the Club Challenge
The Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals has been home to many car clubs with some using the event as the host to their regional or national meets. Awards are presented to the three (3) largest official clubs (based on the number of registered show vehicles). Clubs that register a minimum of 25 vehicles are eligible to receive the use of a 20’ X 20’ tent for the weekend at no charge. These tents make a great location for the club headquarters and the ideal place to hang out and socialize. To get your club registered as an official club for Import & Performance Nationals, you must complete an application form.
I'd have to believe there are other venues in other regions with similar arrangements.
Not quite withdrawal symptoms, but I've been wanting to attend a 'fest for years.
I think I'm going to have to scratch that itching by going to the SAAB owner's convention in my Sonett.
I made it there to Sturgis, SD, and made it back. The trip was 4,441 miles, I used gasoline at about a 28.8 mpg rate. Four days to get there, four at the event, three to get back. Again I'm saying 'never again', but I will forget all about that by next year.It's 2k miles each way, the car is 53 years old, it had 65 gross (not net) hp when new, I'll be at 5k feet altitude so that cuts even more power.
I'm not on the road yet, but I have three more months to prepare.
.... or come to my senses.
Yeah, as if that'll happen.
