Hey all, I've lurked on vwvortex for a long time. Bought a 2006 A3 MT earlier this year (I have a few motorcycles as well) and this coming weekend I'll take ownership of a Corrado SLC well-known to this forum as it has been owned by at least two vortex members.
I'll post photo updates each day along with details about any mechanical or other issues my GF and I encounter along the way.
We'll be departing this Saturday, Jan 9 and heading straight to Albuquerque where we'll spend a few days with my GF's brother who lives there working towards his Ph.D. and their parents who are flying in. From there we plan to drive to San Angelo, TX where I'm attending my cousin's wedding. Then home from there. Probably close to 5K miles by the time we return on Jan 31.
Along the way we hope to hit a couple spots in Tennessee, Marfa and Austin in Texas, and our last "fun" stop will likely be New Orleans for one or two nights. If anyone here has any suggested stops please feel free to chime in. I'm primarily interested in museums (automotive or motorcycle), architecturally significant landmarks and coffee shops. If anyone can suggest specific highways to avoid or more scenic detours to look for, that would be great too.
Very happy to finally be contributing to this forum. And I'll likely be posting about the A3 later this year as I have a few small projects planned for it.
