I understand that Tom - and you know, I have my own issues with that as well. But at the end of the day - I go to see the Beetles and the people I know. I don't go because it's executed wonderfully .....
It's a fun trip for me - and this will be the last time I can go. So I figured I should make use of it while I can.
I'd like to attend this, but getting a week or more of lined up vacation is going to be the tricky part. Sadly, I'll likely pass. I'd more than love to go, as I've never been in a more than 3 beetle caravan before going to any show or event in my life. I also like the comradery that is formed by those traveling in the caravan.
I've gone to the first one, third, fifth and sixth.. When I did'nt go, I felt as though I missed something. (I need a life) Had a blast last year on the Houston caravan. I've already requested time off to go this year...See you there...
I will be going. I have been the last 2 years and enjoyed both trips. The first year I went out of my way just to connect up with the Houston caravan to have the whole caravan experience. If you have never done that, I highly recommend it! I know there is a lot of bad blood with David but he isn't the reason that we go to the show. The show is all about the NB / NBC owners and one of the few opportunities we have to meet up with other beetle peeps that we talk to on the Org. I hope that your feelings toward David do not hold you back from having a great time.
As I have every other year, I'll wait until a few weeks before to commit. But count on my being there! I might even be able to join in the Central! Caravan again. I sure hope so! That really is a high point of the trip, though I love the show stuff, too.
. . . but not so sure. I went a couple of years ago for the 5th anniversary and there were opportunities missed by David that would have made the R2K experience more eventful than the unveiling of the Satellite.
The Herbie thing was pretty cool and Dean Jones was pretty down to earth . . . but it could have been better had David allowed some sort of community involvement other than just showing up.
Silverpodgirl, I live in Salinas. If I do end up going, we can meet up and catch the SoCal carabug!
Bummer. Got a New Beetle in November, was looking forward to going to Roswell for the first time. But it's scheduled the same weekend that our exchange daughter goes back to India. So, we'll be crying at the airport while you guys are cruising down main street. Wish we could join you, but there's always next year.
Next year, the Dutch New Beetle Club will celebrate it's 5th year anniversary.
To celebrate that, some members of the Dutch club have started to organise an event on the mud-flat island Texel.
It's the same location as we went to in March of this year. Check out that thread. ;)
