Traveled from Reading PA to Philly on business today to catch flight back to Indy and saw 5 TDI's on PA turnpike. Thought of you all as I passed Valley Forge. Make it a great weekend!

For those of you that are there, do you know if there is free breakfast at the hotel?

I finally made it. There will be a section for TDIParking when you get here. The signs should have been posted tonight.

Ok, now I cant leave. Went to move the car after bringing bags in and now can't get the key in the ignition. Myself and others have tried everything we could think of but nothing works.
I have called VW for help but they haven't found a dealer around here yet?

It just will not go in. It's like there is something in the way.

Got in a little over an hour ago, waited to post until I was checked in, unloaded my bags, and grabbed a bite to eat.

Baltic Green Jetta with NJ plates, Fred's Frames, and a CB whip on the trunk lid.

Got here around noon!

I saw on the map that there are two people here from Texas -- one from Houston, the other from Austin. I'm a Texas native and look forward to meeting ya'll.

Got in at 2pm only took me 2 hours. Glad I left early. I heard there were a few accidents on 95 after I went through.

I'm "here" - just a slightly different "here" than most of you. I'm at my campsite at Boulder Woods Campground in Green Lane.

I'll be the totally nondescript Galactic Blue Jetta with NY plates =)

We sat next to TeDeEye1 at the banquet. He had the unfortunate distinction of being the only car towed from the Fest! The word from the dealer was that the parts (new ignition switch I'm assuming) are on order :eek: . I think today was the day VW gave him for a estimated time of completion.

Hey Fred, did you ever make it out of there? Are you still at the hotel?

Yes, they called yesterday about 5PM to say it was done. Went and got the car and took it for a test drive to be sure everything was ok. Wasn't sure if getting dragged onto the flatbed did any damage to the alignment. Everything was fine. Went back to the hotel and packed and got out a there. I'm back home now and the car ran fine. I'm not sure but I think running through the mountains might have seated the rings a little better because I got better MPG on the way back. Or maybe there was a tail wind:) Combined for he trip works out to be 43.6 buy paper and pen.

BTW, Thanks for asking.
