      I want to hear what everyone has to say about the changes with the route. I understand that highway 53 is a bit bumpy but maybe a bit too much. I'd like to hear what you have to say so I can make appropriate changes for next year. Also I'd like to thank you all for coming out and making this cruise such a great time for myself and others. I apologize for not having shirts made for the cruise this year, but it just wasn't a wise financial move with me buying a house since I always lose money on them. Hopefully they will be back for next year.

      Seriously though Bryan, the cruise was awesome, as always. I completely missing 53 though, so I have no feedback there. I didnt nav it and never saw a sign

      This was my first year and I had a blast. Highway 53 was a bit bumpy but after taking 26 home I am glad that 53 was the route. Very fun road.

      I intended on mentioning the mile marker for the turn off (mile marker 9.5) but I get nervous when I'm talking in front of 300+ people so it skipped my brain.

      Had a lot of fun. I really enjoyed getting off 26 and onto a fun road, regardless of the surface conditions. I heard my E30 vert was making quite the spark show haha.
      from me for the new route, although I will have to drive it much slower next time

      So I'm young and noobish so take everything I say with a grain of salt...


      I had a mkv GTI with 19's and close to stock height, and there was nothing more irritating then taking 53 at 25mph because of rubbing, with nobody around because only half the people took 53 and half of them stopped every 5 minutes because of **** rubbing and knocking on ****. Just taking those corners I was rubbing. And I get it, thats my fault, not yours. But like you said in your speech, there were plenty of slammed VRs.

      Another minor issue was the lack of direction once we got to Seaside. I think it would have been cool if maybe we had a time to meet up at the beach, and a specific spot. I think in your notes, you didn't mention an end point, but another guy did. So it kinda just made stuff more confusing. As you saw, there ended up being 3 different endpoints to this cruise.

      That being said, I thank you very very much for putting this together. It was a good show.
      I also think it would've been more fun for me if I had known people there, and was able to socialize more. I ended up just leaving early because I didn't know what to do
      The only people I did know were the people whose cars I have worked on at the dealership I work at, but nothing starts off a conversation better then "Hey, you know your car that you've invested tons of blood, sweat and time into? Yeah. Im 19 and you trusted me to work on your car without you knowing it"

      Anyway, thanks again. Please don't flame me.

      Bryan,

      While I did not go on the cruise and cannot give direct feedback regarding that, one idea I have is to possibly try to do it for a "cause" for years to follow. With that many cars gathering in one place, there's no reason a charity couldn't benefit from it in some way. Canned food, donations, etc. most charities would jump at the chance! In my opinion it's always great to see something positive such as that, stem from these types of events. Just my $.02.
      Do it right or do it twice.

      Bags and wheels don't make show cars. Ingenuity and originality are lacking in the scene.

      Bryan- as you probably realized I didn't make it this year. I wasn't really in the mood to hang out around Seaside/drink/etc but I was planning to go play on the beach with everybody. However, like in years past when everyone gets to Seaside there is no organized ending location or meeting spot so I didn't feel like driving there to drive on the beach by myself and then turn around and drive home.

      Perhaps have a final meeting spot in Seaside at a big parking lot (the middle school right off 101?), where the group can split up if people want to? Some can go to hotels/party/whatever, some can go to the beach, some can just hang out. But some organization would give people a sense of where to be and when to be there.

      (Just my $.02)

      I think I'm like 3/6 for these cruises and I want to go again!

      I've tried to get people go down to Jackson School and no one listened. I need to try an see what it would take to get the police or someone to block off the intersection for about 10 minutes so we can all pass through.

      I like the freedom that people can do their own thing and that people plan stuff in addition to the cruise. I've always thought it shows people's enthusiasm for the cruise. I have planned end points in the past and it had limited success. But I can come up with something for next year.

      No negative stuff from me! I'm easy to please.

      I had initially thought that the whole group was fore fitting 53, as I appeared to be the only one turning off!
      I did enjoy the limited traffic (me being selfish )

      Many thanks for yet another great drive! my 3rd year in a row!!!

      Keep changing up the routes...lots of fun twisties in rural Columbia, Clatsop, and Washington counties. A central meetup spot at the end would be nice, but not essential. I had a blast and will do it again.

      I completely missed the turn, along with like 20 more people. There wasn't a sign for 53 anywhere to be found and I didn't know it was the road to wheeler/tillamook.

      I still had a blast, until my shift cable broke off the shift tower. Once that was fixed the good times resumed.

      I also agree. A game plan for the end of the cruise would be ideal. Maybe even talk to Seaside City Hall and make some arrangements to have a street closed down for cruise attendee parking. You'd be surprised what can happen when you talk to the right people.

      I missed hwy 53 as well, so I just took 23 all the way into seaside. It was my first year, so no complaints here, I just enjoyed getting out and about with some of the vw/euro community.

      I missed 53 as there isn't a sign where the turn is. I realized I passed it about a mile after but kept going. Another thing I would have liked would be to have a specific time for everyone to meet at the Del Rey beach and who to look for if you're the first few people. Maybe a VW sign or something for the guy in the truck that was building the bonfire pit. Also the Del Ray beach access road was too deep for most cars and I ended up helping many people out as did the truck so it would be nice if there was an alternate entrance. A reminder to people that driving on the beach is considered a public road with a speed limit of 25mph. Some guys didn't feel the need to read the sign and were going nuts in the sand. Last thing we need is to be banned. Also I'd like to see parking at the VW credit center organized into major car types with R32 in one area, GTIs in another, etc...

      I think your requests are a little extreme. Sounds like you need to start your own cruise

Maybe a VW sign or something for the guy in the truck that was building the bonfire pit. Also the Del Ray beach access road was too deep for most cars and I ended up helping many people out as did the truck so it would be nice if there was an alternate entrance. A reminder to people that driving on the beach is considered a public road with a speed limit of 25mph. Some guys didn't feel the need to read the sign and were going nuts in the sand. Last thing we need is to be banned. Also I'd like to see parking at the VW credit center organized into major car types with R32 in one area, GTIs in another, etc...

      x2. And fyi, there are THREE different entrances to the beach. Del Ray is the middle one. Bryan has no control over how other people choose to drive on the beach, it happens every year and is not just limited to people on our cruise. Theres a reason the police are going up and down it all day long.

      I had a great time Bryan!!! I too missed hwy 53 (along with most of us) but still enjoyed the fellowship with all of you. Got lot of great input on peoples experiences with parts and finally got a ride in a Mk4 on coils

      Only things I could possibly see doing differently would be to have the police assist us in leaving as to keep us all together. I mean after all...there had to easily be 125 cars in the VW credit parking lot, yet I was only in a pack of 5 or 6 cars. I'd have preferred to be in a pack with ALL of us together.

      I also like what someone else mentioned about doing it for a cause and there are plenty to choose from. Cancer, hunger, MADD, etc.....you name it.

      Overall I'm VERY impressed with your ability to orginize this and am glad that I attended. I REALLY look forward to the next one.

      There is a sign 1/4 mile before the turn, but if you don't know where it is, its easy to miss. I intended to tell everyone what mile marker it was but it slipped my mind from being nervous. Another route I have pondered over was Cornelius Pass down to Hwy 30 to Hwy 101 down to Seaside. The only downside to that route is there is several small towns along the way where the speed limit dips. But it has some incredible views and its really smooth. I will look into alternate routes as well. I'm open to suggestions.

      ...and we all know what the road to hell is paved with, don't we?

      I was behind a group of cars that zoomed right past the junction with 53. But really, if you even bothered to look at the route map how could you miss it? It's not like there are that many ways to get off 26 on a paved road heading south.

      Calm down grandpa, don't you know that all these youngsters are too busy multitasking to pay attention to the directions? Geez!

      I think that if you had 5-10 people to direct traffic leaving the credit center so that everyone went to jackson school road, we could all be in one big group getting onto 26.

      Second, I loved 53! I rubbed a bit but as long as you slowed down and went around some of the potholes it wasn't bad at all.

      Third. There has to be an ending point. I have always hated the free for all at the end. This is the first time I had stayed the night there and I still hardly saw anyone! It would be a lot more fun if we had a spot to meet and then everyone could go from there and do there own thing.

      I think my friend Andrea was always the one who made those. I forget what her screen name was/is.

      Thanks for all the suggestions so far. Anyone have anything else?

      There actually is a sign, a 1/4 mile from the turn, but it's easy to miss!
      Stretched, poke, rubbed......sounds like a porn stars butt hole.

      Does anyone know who had the Crosshaul window stickers? If so are they still available and how can I get one?
