Is there any interest in carpooling to TDIFest this year? If so, post up in this thread.

Myself, I'm interested in carpooling... I'm in Newark, OH (so about a 14-15 hour drive to Fest).

I would want to be at Fest between Thursday afternoon and Friday mid-day I think, and I would want to leave some time between Monday morning and mid-day. (Getting more time than that off work would be... difficult.)

I would want to share driving duties with whoever carpools with me, due to the distance.

I have a 2-door Golf, so I could only take one other person comfortably in my own car. If I'm riding in someone else's car, I'll note that I'll be bringing a folding bicycle with me, which will take a little extra cargo space (but it will fit in the cargo area of any TDI, with room to spare for luggage - plenty of room to spare if it's a sedan or wagon).

Ain't it the truth?

Route? We're rolling out Thursday. Planning to go to Cleveland area and then turn right......drive until it's time to stop, then finish up Friday morn/afternoon.

Haven't thought about route yet. likely up 77 and then east.. need to figure that one out. lets try to coordinate at my GTG next weekend Bruce.

We are going to have to take our offer back. Amanda did have to remind me that we would be doing site seeing on the way back so we aren't able to meet Erics schedule. I knew there was something I was forgetting.

Eric, there is bound to be someone else from the area that wold love to ride along. perhaps post it up on the columbustdidrivers yahoo group.

DC to TDIFest

BKmetz, GeekDrew, car54, spacemonkeymafia, compu_85, and I will all be heading up to Maine from Springfield, VA bright and early on Wednesday, August 28th for an arrival time that evening. Not sure how many vehicles we will be taking yet (at least 3 + a trailer due to all of the stuff that needs to go with us).

Return home will be bright and early on the Tuesday after TDIFest. Total duration of stay: 6 nights.

Anyone else want to join in on the extended stay caravan/carpool? :)
