      If I have a cabin on the hill and on dirt, be more careful, also I should have gotten more sleep prior to driving to sowo.

      Drive more on the mountains again.

      1. Don't fall asleep driving numerous times there and back.
      2. Stay in town and party.
      3. Don't curb my wheel in a drive-thru while texting.
      4. Have something worthy of driving into the show.
      5. Go tubing.
      6. Meet more people.

      Seems like staying longer than the event (ie. a week) is a popular decision!

      quit your crying, it's a VAG show to begin with and many of us don't care for your lame Honda scene, for that very reason, the douchey behavior of destroying someone's property b/c you disagree with them. You're mad at me b/c some of us drove a 1000 miles to not be admitted while NON VAG cars were?

      You're super awesome.

      Tell my boss to go F himself and go instead of having to cancel and almost pay for a room I didn't use. Does that count?


      I *NEEDED* to go this year because of the Mk2 I bought and wanted to get ideas, talk with the owners....to learn.
      Yeah, it's an 8v. If I wanted a sporty car, I'd buy an R.

      1. Get there earlier. Got to Helen Thursday afternoon and left Monday morning and still wished I had more time up there.

      2. Drive the mountain roads more up there, as well as cruise the city more.

      3. Visit the goddamn black bears!

      4. Take more photos of the town.

      5. Meet more peeps to associate faces with names.

      All in all, a pretty successful SOWO. Stayed in a cabin which was 2 minutes outside of town (in the Gated Golf Course community right next to the field entrance), went tubing on Saturday and got some free beers , hung out with new and old friends, and all in all had a pretty chill weekend.

      I'm glad this year I decided to bring a camelback and fill it with ice cold water. I didn't run out the entire day!
