      Looking to set up a caravan to BFI from the Buford/Hamilton Mill area for the show. Here's what I'm thinkin:

      • It's a 6 hour drive, and I hate early morn caravans on the day of events.
      • Most people will be coming up (North) I-85 anyways.
      • Post-Lunch meet & greet in Hamilton Mill


      There's a Walmart on Sardis Church Road that would be great place to meet. There's a Chili's and Barberitos on the other side for those that want to chow down some lunch first.

      Initial plans*

      Meet at 11:00 AM on Friday, October 12th and caravan up from Walmart to our hotel destinations in/around Cary, NC.

      Link to the general map is from Sardis Church Road in Hamilton Mill to BFI's address (1000 E Chatham St., Cary, NC 27511)
      Map: http://goo.gl/maps/1oWFB

      Map


      This caravan is open to discussion as we have just over a month to plan and organize for the show.



      *Initial plans are subject to change with or without notice, although I'll do my best to update with notice.

      Can't wait. Already got time off work for the show. Got there late last year, hope to grab a good spot this year by getting there early.

      Sweet. Would love to have someone join in. Only worry is that we're taking I-85 all the way up. If you wanna join in around Gastonia, that would be cool.

      What's your ride?

      Very cool! Post a picture when you can. I'm going to post up a map of our route later today. The departure time from Buford, GA may change for Friday, but not sure yet.

      We still have time to plan and organize. It'll be fun.

      Beautiful! Mine will be lowered a tad, eurotag, and tuned before then. I wanted to change a few things but since this is all the original paint and interior and wheels, I just cant bring myself to do it!! Keeping it classic

      It's been brought to my attention that leaving at 11:00 AM would put us in Charlotte around 3:00 PM.

      That should make meeting up with KellyMcLain in Gastonia hopefully a little easier around 2:30/2:45 PM.

      FYI: I will be bringing my laptop and VAG-COM system with me both OBD-I and OBD-II for anyone that needs a MIL inspection.

      Read & DTC clearing is free, but a cash donation would be greatly appreciated!

      I have a MK6 Jetta, looking for some simple things like enabling full functionality with the euro switch for starters. I'll probably pick up a euro switch from BFI amongst other things when I get there. I also want to be able roll the windows up and down from my key. (Saw a buddy with a MK6 GLI VAG-COM coded achieve this). I'll think of some other things and make a list!

      Very cool. If they didn't change too much, the process should be the same as the Mk5s, but I'll still have to look up the process for that - only done it once or twice.

      Hit me the list in a PM and I'll pull the processes together.

      Also, if anyone has an iPhone or Android download & set up Google Latitude so we can track each other. We'll need e-mail addresses to link everyone up. Feel free to PM or post your address and we'll hook up on the app.

      This should help KellyMcLain plan her meet up with us on the road.

      Just a quick update:

      Kelly wanted to have a pin-point meet with us on the way up, so I decided to have a stop planned for the Westfield Eastridge shopping mall - there's a Captain D's out front on N. New Hope Road, so we'll be meeting in the parking lot there.

      Link to the NEW map is as follows: http://goo.gl/maps/1oWFB

      The address for the mall:

      246 N. New Hope Road
      Gastonia, North Carolina 28054

      Our ETA for this stop is roughly 3 Hours after our departure from Hamilton Mill at 11:00 AM.

      See ya there!
