I'll be there with my swapped MK2. Unfortunately, I don't have the time or cash to get my big Cummjbs 4BT turbo on by then, but at least its a TDI swapped car ;)

I'll be interested to hear what you get for FE on the trip up, tomo.
This Hybrid is not like most......It gets better mileage on the Highway than in town......I just took a road trip today to pick up my new Hand Gun 120 miles round trip and got 51 MPG nice day No A/C and windows open!!

This will be my 1st real trip should be good!

You have a good time Tomo and send me some pictures of the event, would love to be there, but could not pull it all together this year, for sure next year, and I have to make a trip up that way once I have 100,000 on the car, at 80,000 so not too long now.

That just makes me even more mad we don't have the hybrid diesel over here. If your getting 51 with a gasser hybrid imagine what a little 3 cyl TDI could do...

Yeah that is quite impressive. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you get on the way up to Fest.

Jason and I went to a Benz GTG near Philly yesterday and got 53.0 indicated round trip. :eek:

Although not a TDI, but it is a DIESEL vehicle, I will have my 2014 BMW 535xd at the fest and plan to drive it up Mt.Washington. The Mt.Washington drive should be interesting after sunset with the FLIR night vision system.

I took delivery on the 535xd on Weds 8/14/13. It arrived a little sooner than expected. I've got a little over 2k miles on it already and it is a hoot to drive. I will be around to show it off if anyone is interested in checking it out.

I will be driving the blue ridge park way on the way up there. I also plan on driving up to the Bay of Fundy to see the biggest tidal change in the world. 53 feet!!! Anybody else interested to join? It is about 5 hours or so away. Of course I will be doing the Mt. Washington run with everyone else. The last time I went there, only half the mountain road was open because of clouds so pray for good clear weather.
Great additional trips! I live not-so-far from the Blue Ridge Parkway-it's a nice drive. And the Bay of Fundy is kinda mind-blowing. I visited it over 20 years ago (!!:eek: how did that much time pass??) and I still have vivid pictures of it in my mind.

As for Mt. Washington, I'm not even letting the thought of bad weather that night enter my mind. :D I saw it Memorial Day weekend and it was amazing. I'm really looking forward to seeing it at sunset.

I wish I had time to do some extra sightseeing on this trip. You'll have to enjoy it for the rest of us.

I guess it did arrive on time after all. I can't wait to see that beast of a BMW at the top of the mountain. :beer:

If it's dark enough out by the time we get to the top or afterward, be sure to check out the FLIR night vision capability.

I'm planning to arrive early enough on Friday to do the Snowflake Factory tour in the afternoon.

Your car has night vision??? :eek:

I wish I could make it for the snowflake factory tour, but that would require me to leave at 6AM tomorrow, which is definitely not happening. I'll probably be getting up to NH by 6-8ish. I'd like to arrive before it gets dark, the roads arent too well lit in the middle of nowhere up there.

The weather is a bit overcast but supposedly will be getting better over the weekend. Small crowd here at the Grand Summit Hotel. Looking forward to seeing everyone

I know you all are going to have a great time. Unfortunately I am working Friday and Sunday so I'm not going to make maybe next year. I guess I have to start planning now for next year.

How many years have you been saying this? ;)
been to 12 out of the 14 Fests......with the Exception of PeterV, Jon Bartlett, and Fred who have been to all of them nobody is close......Tired right now!!
It was 13 hours back home although the traffic wasn't that bad but in and out of driving rain most of the way and went around NY City which added 35 miles!Also just before I entered MD after going through the toll at the Delaware line 2-3 accident in a 3 mile drive 1st one involved at least 10 cars!! had Just stormed and cars were accelerating from the toll booth....:(

Not as stressful as the trip up was!!
Great Job Folks!! nice seeing everyone even if I wasn't driving a TDI

You're already home, tomo?! We still have 8 hours to go and left 9:30 last night (right after the auction ended).

This Fest was a fun one and my wife agreed. Definitely worth coming though maybe not driving straight through 1680 miles. Need to fly or break up the driving over several days.

Or have the fests further south. Any scuttle butt about ideas for next year, yet?

Thanks everyone that was involved into organizing the Fest. This was my first one, and probably not my last one. We really enjoyed it.
