What happens at the Fest stays at the Fest!

Just kidding. Look back through the pictures of past Fests and you'll get a good idea. It's a GREAT time.

Following up on the losers in the lobby pic, which is traditionally people hanging out in the lobby to use WiFi, the hotel has good WiFi everywhere, so you can get your fix anywhere - not just the lobby.

Also, the only cell phone provider with reliable service on the mountain is Verizon. AT&T is spotty and Sprint doesn't work at all.

Here is a Verizon LTE speed test:

Hmmmmmm.....
It's a big maybe for me at this point. I'd love to make it, but at this point there's too many variables for me this far out.

yup, this one is nice and close, and I know that area pretty well - will try to make it down, if I'm allowed in (no more TDI...)

Looking forward to TDIfest2015!! Count us in!

I'm planning to bring the 2014 BMW 535d to the 'fest like I did in 2013. :cool: In 2013 I had picked up the 535d about 2 weeks before TDIfest2013.

Disappointed

What I liked best about the hotel was when I walked into the Lobby with Parker (my dog) and learned that (a) dogs aren't allowed; (b) service dogs are allowed; (c) hotel staff aren't allowed to ask if a dog is a service dog. Perfect
Actually they can, and they should. They can't ask if YOU have a disability that would justify you having such a dog on site, but they absolutely can ask about the dog, including asking to see the certificates of training.
Dogs IN training, not yet certified, are clearly identified as such, and are similarly allowed only when the trainer / handler has the appropriate trainer certificates on hand.

I agree they should. My son has been bugging me for years to register Parker as a service dog. Although service dogs perform some very important duties, the registration is also used (or you might say abused) by folks who just want to talk their dogs more places.

I actually stayed at the Bethel Inn for the '13 Fest. They allow animals.

Not all service dogs have "certificate of training" for example service dogs for ptsd and TBIs just have behavior evals.

This site is superb! The last couple of miles will plant a smile on your face good and proper! All uphill with curves!!! Die ZOOMzoom-shaka-laka! This place is located at the end of the road on a mountain, and we will most probably be the only ones the at this time of year!

What a great launching point for a longer trip too! :cool:

Would love to attend if I can hitch up with someone who wants to cruise together. I don't know many if any in the community so I'm a little cautious about whether I should attend or not.

You should attend. Everybody is friendly easy going.

Here are some pics of the 2013 fest I took, but I was only there for a few hours on Saturday due to work constraints. I'll be there the whole time this year and am looking forward to it.

BlankThis, you should attend. While I have not met many of the people on the board, I still consider them friends. It's easy to converse with people when you have a common interest and I have only found a small handfull of people I'd drive by and smile if they were broken down on the side of the road.

Bob, are you planning on parting out an RV?

:D

If I wanted to supply some hand made VW themed trinkets to sell with all money going to Fred, how can I do that? I won't be attending, BTW.
