      i live here, so its easy for me to get to the show. i travel all over all summer to other states along the coast looking for some vw action. come here to our state and have some fun with us. we have awesome scenery, some fun stuff planned and lots of good people with cars they have worked very hard on for some time,who also go out of state all summer to represent. come join us for a weekend. it'll be worth it. see you guys at dustoff, staggered and sowo in the meantime.

      Yes, worth it. Great location. Lots more food options this year. Magic Hat (brewery) also??

      Weather looks great. Improving every year!

      I will be there. Might bring two cars if I can get the wife to drive the Cabriolet.

      Might also bring trailer of MK4 and MK1 parts.... we will see.

      The show reserved blocks at a few hotels. There are a few rooms left at the holiday inn, the deadline is past but if you move quick they might honor the discount. Just left them know you're with wolfsgart, good luck!

      Plus.... Vermont has the highest number of breweries per capita AND the best brewery in the world (2013).

      http://www.brewersassociation.org/pa...ies-per-capita

      http://www.wcax.com/story/21234743/m...wed-in-vermont

      Or... and there is a cool VW/german car show.

      Opened this link expecting to see The Alchemist because of their Heady Topper, find out that Hill Farmstead is up there. Now don't get me wrong Hill is a great brewery but Heady is ranked number one beer in the world on multiple sites/rankings/publications/ect. Never seen hill as number one before.

      Ahh regardless still great beer!

      Oh and a great show

      As of right now, we are planning on coming up. Yes, I have been to Burlington. My parents have friends there. Haven't been there for about 15 years though.

      Anyway, what does a ferry cost, and are they low rider friendly?
      Get over it.

      I would imagine you're taking I-87, if so you can take ext 20 to rt9 north to 149 to RT4 North, take ext 2 take 22A north to rt7 north then all the way to Burlington. Fastest way from the Albany, NY area.

      Dont speed to much too much on 22A and DO NOT speed in Vergeenes.

      Vergennes, VT on RT22A. The speed limit essentially goes from 50 mph, down a hill, to a 25 zone with the cop sitting at the bottom. Cemetery will be on your left as you head down the hill... cop will be on the right in a dirt parking lot.

      He will be parked here: 44.159756,-73.262265

      Wolfsgart 2013

      Had fun at Bag Rider's BBQ. Good seeing new and old faces.

      So many nice cars there that I was slightly motivated to head home and clean the car a little... in the dark. Got some 20 second exposure (f5.6 / iso 800.... probably means something to a photographer) of the car. Not quite in focus, but I think it is pretty neat.
