Will miss you guys on this forum, will try to continue to check in.

I just stared a blog with pictures over on the Micra forum:

I also have a running blog on the Odyssey forum:

I really do enjoy the forums.

It sucks to see you go Paul, but it's understandable that you have to move on at some point in time if the Golf isn't as reliable as you need it to be.

It was incredible that you made it to one of my cruises/GTGs all those years ago and of course it was great getting to see you again at TDIFest in 2016.
Here are some of the pictures I have of you and your Golf.

I knew I was taking a chance driving half way around Lake Huron and Lake Michigan just to go check out your GTG, but it was a worth it. Thanks for hosting that cruise through the woods was one of the most memorable drives I have ever been on. Thanks for letting me drive your Jetta (the blue one on the far left in the second photo for everyone else) that thing was so wild, If I remember correctly I think I accidently pulled the gear knob off because I was holding on so tight. Great pictures with the NARFATOMIC BLASTOMATIC tire letters there! The last two must have been from TDIFest 2016, another great event. Thanks for that last photo, the wheels and the left rear fender look great in that one. Also the classic Tim Hortons cup on the trailer hitch and the rustic roof rack.

Great memories, good times.

edit: I cleaned up those wheels and they still look great if anyone is interested, LOL: https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1589496079

I'm glad you took a chance and drove the 600km to come to my cruise/GTG. I honestly was blown away that you decided to make the trip and I'm elated that you enjoyed going on the cruise of Door County, WI. I honestly forgot that you drove my Jetta once we got back from our cruise of the county. My Jetta moves pretty good after a decent number of upgrades have been done to it and I'm glad you got to experience driving a modified TDI to see what's capable with just bolt ons. I've even purchased a GTB2260VKLR to replace the aging VNT-17/22 either over winter or next spring, so it'll be even faster than when you drove it. 😊
Yeah, I never got around to cinching up the clip that holds the shift knob onto the shift shaft, so I've had people like yourself pull up on the shift knob when going to shift, only to pull it off the shift shaft mid shift. I really need to double check if that clamp ever got clipped to hold the shift knob on. :unsure:

Yep, the last two are from the 2016 TDIFest that was held in Sturgeon Bay that year. Like you mentioned they were some great memories from you coming to my cruise/GTG and then the following year at TDIFest. Even though you won't have a TDI anymore you're more than welcome to attend one of my cruises/GTGs in the future, which for the record I'm having one next Saturday, the 23rd of October.😉

That is awesome! I would love to take a long weekend drive in the new Micra, there is minor issue that all US border land-crossings are still closed to leisure seeking Canadians until at least November 8th: https://globalnews.ca/news/8268245/canada-u-s-land-open-nov-8-official/

I had no idea that the US/Canadian border crossings were still closed. I would have thought that they would be open by now.

Couldn't you say you were coming here on business to sell some of the parts from your Golf TDI? 🤣

There's always next year I guess. 👍😊

It's so bizarre. Even as of November 8, we'll be able to enter the US simply with proof of double-vax. But to get back *INTO* Canada (for Canadians....who obviously proved double-vax to leave), we need that *PLUS* a negative PCR test (at $200-$300) within the 72hr. window prior to re-entering. 🤔

I hope you enjoy the Micra, @NarfBLAST - all the best!
