Heading up tomorrow afternoon. For those going up on Friday, we typically eat dinner at the Mexican Restaurant on the main street. Eating time depends on everyone's arrival times.

As always, we will have a couple of trucks and trailers and/or tow bars in case anyone has a problem.

We ride rain or shine. Cool

Thanks to all who made it out. A little rain at the start, but it cleared, and turned out to be a great day. No wrecks or break downs. A handful showed up in non-VWs (I totally understand how life sometimes doesn't allow things to be fixed in time). Loved seeing Theresa hang out the Jeep's sunroof taking pics. Pat won an alternator, so we expect to see Scooter next year:-)

As Clyde said, thank you to all who came a cruised the mountains with us. It was good to meet the new folks and to see all the regulars. Thanks to the sponsors that donated the prizes, I think over half the participants went home a prize.

The cook-out was again a great success, dispite a poorly timed rain shower.

**We do have a few event t-shirts left- $ 12.00 I'll post a list of the sizes left if anyone is interested.

We made it and had a great time. Thanks to the Athens vw club for being great hosts again and yes I won the alternator with the third best poker hand of three of a kind 3's.

Edit: The alternator installed easily, with my daughters small hands. The front bearing was shot, going to try and get it rebuilt locally
