I know I have been asking all week about this trip, but I cannot make it.  I was thinking about it and really looking forward to the drive and meeting everyone...then it hit me.  I would have to leave here by 6:00am to make the 120 mile drive, then spend time driving the 200 plus mile drive in the hills, then drive the 120 miles back here.  Thats gonna cost (including lunch) like $100.00.  I mean I really want to meet you guys, but I am going for a guys 4 days in Vegas, and I think that might cost a little bit...'cause it's gonna get wild.  So I hate to puss out when I have been asking about the particulars for the last week, but I just can't do it  :cry:

I think we are in.  We will be waiting for the whole SCR thing for another week or so... don't ask!

Not sure what car we are going to bring.. either the Passat or Subie.. not sure at this point.  We may turn around in Frisco though... as we might have the little one... and well.. not sure if she can handle the entire ride.  We will have to gauge it if she is with us.

We should see you all this Sat!

I am 95% sure I will be there....  just wish we were starting at 9am instead of 10am.  :cry:

Hopefully I can do the whole trip on 100octane.

I think i won't be able to make it.  I have to house-sit Frances' place thru saturday with Jess, and I've got to install Jess' OEM stereo back into her car for the lease trade in.  ):  

if anyhting changes before early tomorrow morning i'll let you know.

Can't make it. We are going rafting for the day down on the Arkansas. Maybe next time on a sunday i will make it. Saturdays and during the week are tough.  Since my wife works sundays i reserve saturdays to do things with her, and sundays are for me. :)

I wish I could be there but got the final "trip not approved" from the wife this evening.  too much landscaping and other house work to get done.

our old house is set to close next week, and we have to finish getting stuff packed before movers come on Wednesday.

fun, fun, fun.  

enjoy the drive guys.  I'll be wishing I was there.

I may do it... I won't be able to stop for lunch; I'll have to head home down I-70 from there...

On a side note, I've gotten the art of swapping a MKIV 1.8t clutch down to about 5.5 hours...

I was thinking of Eric Cartman with his evil'o' something like that and so it became.  I even had his voice going through my head.  

kickass!





Like Ian, I will only be joining the group until I-70 after breckenridge.  Depending on time I might stay for lunch (which I want to), but might have to depart w/o lunch.

WOW! Fantastic drive Jason! Thanks so much for all your effort into making this happen. It was well worth it except for the dust I'm still cleaning out of my ears....thanks Jack :lol:  My pics are getting processed and should be up by the middle of the week.
There's nothing better than coming up over the top of a mountain and seeing a big, empty valley and all of three cars on the road :twisted: Then letting out a rebel yell over the radio as you fly past the last car at 120 and slam it until you can't go any faster :P
Jack, BIG THANKS to you for suggesting the Lookout Mountain Pass. Again, all of five cars on it and TONS of fun :twisted: For those of you that weren't there, it was the best part of the drive. Sorry, but it's true :wink:

...I love driving....

Looks like fun.  I had to work on my honeydo list around the house.

JR - those wheels are looking good!
