This is true, given that Texas is such a large state, and there are those of us TDI fans who live both in the city and rural (me being the latter).Midwest is much farther north than Texas. I have suggested Texas in the past...but never seems enough interest. The Tdi member concentration isnt very high per square mile, but is pretty high overall. Especially when factoring in the neighboring states. Getting all those folks to participate...thats the trick.....
I suppose Oklahoma is closer to being in the middle of the US. The only problem I can think of with Tahoe/CA is those of us who have emissions deleted TDIs, since CA is the home of CARB. Unless you're in Austin, nobody really cares about emissions deleted diesels in general in Texas (and most cops I've talked to don't care either).
Did participants ever do group drives on mountain/scenic routes at past TDIfests? That could be another thing to look into in choosing a location.
EDIT - almost forgot to mention - I hope we at least pick a pet friendly hotel for next year, as I'll probably bring the dog in my avatar along with me.
