Ok, as some of you may know the Colorado Springs New Beetle club has monthly GTG to meet up and have burgers at Sonic in the Springs. I obviously don't have a NB, but I asked last month, and all VWs are welcome.
http://www.yoyospin.com/nbc/page2.html
I anticipate going this month (If I'm not on company travel to L.A.), and was thinking that if others were interested we could caravan down.
Maybe meet up at Krispy Kreme at like 2 PM and depart in time to make the springs at 3:30 for the GTG. I was thinking Krispy Kreme because its right off of I-25 and C470, so if anyone were driving down to the springs they almost have to pass KK anyway.
Directions from YoYoSpin:
quote:[HR][/HR]U-bet-ya...I25 south to COS, exit on Garden of the Gods, go east. GofG turns into Austin Bluffs. Continue east on Austin Bluffs for about 5 miles, crossing Academy. Then look for the Sonic on your right. See you there!!!!!
[HR][/HR]​
So anyone else interested?

May be into that. Will have to see what the 16th brings. Plans for the 15th may boil over to the 16th... and with the weather and all I am not sure. I will let you know when things are closer though.

Well, I'll buy a box of donuts and bring it down - maybe stick it on the seat next to me and turn on the heated seats to keep them warm...
BTW: no promises that all the donuts survive the trip. j/k

I'm down, as long as the weather doesn't turn on us, plus the GTI needs more TLC before I'd be willing to take it to the Springs
Any A1 experts want a steak dinner?
I'm sure Joe would be down too, but he is planning on heading home for the holidays sometime around then. We'll see.

Re: Sunday December 16th it is !

If you have Motorola TalkAbouts or similar FRS radios bring them. I'll bring my pair, that way we can talk car-to-car on the way down. We'll be using Channel 7 Sub 21. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Note: the TalkAbouts are fairly cheap these days. Remember you can always "try them out" by purchasing them at Target or REI (both have liberal return policies if it turns out you don't like the radios). You'll want to get radios that have 14 Channels with 38 Sub Channel interference codes. This capability dramtically reduces the likelyhood that we would be using the same frequency as someone else. You can buy Motorola TalkAbouts (or similar radios) individually or in pairs.
I've had mine for a few years now and have gotten a lot of use out of them. They are great for group drives, hiking in large groups, or mountain biking with stragglers. Two years ago we used my TalkAbouts on a road trip to Canada. It was great, you could coordinate food/gas/and rest stops with the other car.

I would definately like to go, my rotation at denver general ends the 14 so it is just up in the air whether I will still be here Sunday - my girlfriend really wants me to drive right back when I finish. But if not I will be there for the drive, maybe on my way back to Abq - also I was stopped by a guy in a modded Audi A4 last night and he is very interested in meeting some of the vw community - I will let him know about this.

If my rabbit behaves, I'll be there. The last five days, my rabbit wasn't behaving well. I was stuck in middle of NOWHERE in Iowa .....where people don't know jackass about volkswagen.
She seems to be running good lately but its a 17 years old car...you never know.

I hate to say this but I'm deaf.....I don't think this will work out for ME. So I can just follow you..just make sure you don't lose me and the bunny!
