Already done.
Hoping to see a good DVG turn out, maybe we can set up "our corner" again. We were always the center of attention!

I'm probably heading out on Friday afternoon.
I'll definitely be camping, planning to bring the 64 - but might go in a new-acquisition. Maybe I'll bring both.

I'll be heading out on the Friday to camp the extra night. Not sure if I'll bring both cars or just the bug and tent it.

I don't know yet. Not sure if I want to use an AC Vanagon to really pull anything... If Jen or one of my friends are going with me I may let them roll the Vanagon out there. Given, I would rather have the bug at the AACG than the van, so if I have to tent, thats OK if it means having the bug there.
Also, would be a little weather dependent. If it is going to be shitty and I don't want the bug getting wet then I might take the westy.

Yes, yes you are.

In other news, an awesome weekend at Flanders. Was great to get out and the weather was perfect for camping.
Raj and I both came home with some hardware. Raj took a Club Choice and my 64 got People's Choice.

For all the keyboard warriors who bashed CJVWS for taking their show in a more relaxed direction to reduce manpower needed to keep up with an ever-growing event - the only ones to miss out were 'you' - the show was fantastic. Probably 40-50% of usual car show attendance. The swap was pretty small but I understand vendors being conservative when they can't anticipate the attendance in the presence of the new ticketing model and an intentionally reduced attendance cap.
All in all, an awesome day that really lacked for nothing of consequence. 100% will do again.

It was a bit chill this year but still a good time, worst part was the 46 minute backup at the GW . :(

Also the band this year was kick ass.
