      I'm driving out in the Orchid Euro van from Philadelphia, PA. Myself and two friends are flying into NYC on the Monday and then driving to Philly to pickup the van, and head straight to the show to arrive on Friday - the plan is to travel 6,000 miles in 4 days. On the way, we'll picking up one more person who's flying in to meet us in Denver. Is there a prize for furthest distance traveled?

      If anyone has any parts they want put in the van let us know. We'll be at Southern Worthersee this weekend before flying back to Europe next week, so any special orders will have to be done pretty soon so we don't run out of time. As usual, things are beyond busy so sorry in advance if it takes a bit to get back to anyone..

      What do you want? I have mk2 RHD conversion clips, Mk2 Jetta OEM small euro bumpers, Golf GTI interlagos interior seats etc.

      If you really put your money where your keyboard is, I can have custom orders shipped this weekend via air to the show.

      That sounds awesome! I would be all over it but my wife is flying into Denver at 9pm on Thursday so we're planning to meet her there and then drive continuously overnight to get to Vegas around lunch time on Friday. I would seriously have loved to join in the caravan though, thanks!

      Thanks, I really appreciate it. This is definitely going to be a major road trip and it's really nice to know we have a bunch of people across the country just in case. I'll be updating the Orchid website/Instagram/FB and possibly the Car Lounge sprinter thread and this one as we go. My two friends from the UK arrived yesterday for the show too, and we're packing everything today, with a planned departure of 8am tomorrow.
