I wish I had the time to organize one... Jefferson city is a 30 minute drive for me.Actually I've been told Jefferson City Missouri is the geographic center of the US. And actually not a bad place.
I agree that Michigan is nothing but a supermassive black hole.Very true, that being said, Michigan is the undisputed center of the universe
from my angle it looks like they’re all coming this way.... but I like your version betterI agree that Michigan is nothing but a supermassive black hole.
If one accepts universal expansion, that everything is moving away from everything, as valid, and also accepts that Michigan IS the undisputed center of the universe, then it follows that everything is going AWAY from Michigan.
Never been to Kansas before. Could be fun. What's there to do in Wichita? Anything vw related there?The thought of being in Lebanon, KS is a good in order for everyone to have a chance to show up, but true that it's not feasible with how small of a town it is. However, we can go to a bigger town not too far, like Wichita, and meet there. Thoughts?
sounds like we need to come to your place given your collection....I figured I'd preemptively start yet another thread, since there's only a couple of months left in 2022.
Someone suggested an East and West TDIfest. I'm all for something regional, even if it's semi-informal. I know for some of us, like myself, I acquired MORE TDIs since dieselgate (mom has a BEW, CJAA, and EA288 TDI, and I currently own 5 ALHs, a BRM and a CJAA), and always enjoy meeting other TDI owners.
I organized 22 GTG in NorCal over 11 years which was great while it lasted, unfortunately we had to take down the related threads. We would get about 30 cars even more per GTG to show up and people drove in from San Diego, Portland and I believe once even from Seattle and Phoenix. Great food, great camaraderie and more.My two cents, but I'm surprised that we don't just host a bunch of smaller gatherings local to where people are. Midwest, East Coast, and West Coast.
I, for one, would happily boot my way to GA/FL or NY/NJ for a meet just as readily, especially with how easy I-95 is.
I forget the year but there was a national get together in northern Virginia and we drove by the VW headquarters . Maybe 2010 or there abouts.I organized 22 GTG in NorCal over 11 years which was great while it lasted, unfortunately we had to take down the related threads.

I think a TdiFest on the national level would be great and I am willing to help even though it would be remote.
How about at VW NA Headquarters? It could be great PR for VW and a logical place where to have a national event. Perhaps VW NA could also help secure hotels at reduced cost and more.
Tulsa, OK would be the place to go then. Very centrally located along the old Route 66.I recall posting in a few other pages on a TDiFest anywhere along Route 66 due to its unique history. Then again, maybe somewhere in Canada, with the currency exchange rate favorable for those south of the border. Hell, even something on both sides of the border might keep everyone happy. Places like Thunder Bay, Niagara Falls/Buffalo/Toronto area, International Falls, Abbottsford/Vancouver for a few examples. Long drive for many, short drive for some. I drove 66 in 2016 and it was the best trip of my life, IMO. FWIW, I also did TCH in 2 segments and Pacific Coast Highway. But 66 and its history gives a few spots that might interest many, and no doubt so does the wide expanse of Canada. IMO, Ive never been to International Falls, so not aware of the hotel/motel/RV park situation. JMO on a few ideas. Stay safe, stay well.
