We just got in a while ago. Did a little shopping at the outlet mall and got stuck on the thruway for a bit because of an accident.

Had a great time, thanks again to everyone who pitched in and helped.

We made it home safe and sound. Smile Finally got on the road about one this afternoon and even with some immediate traffic (due to a pretty bad wreck - hope they're ok) on the Thruway and then some normal traffic on the pike near 84 for a few miles, we made it home before 8pm.Not too bad. Quicker than the ride down! The girls were tired, which worked for me, because there was no one awake to tell me to NOT go the 80-90mph I was doing while they dreamed of next year's fest. Wink

Thanks to all who donated, coordinated, cooked, cleaned, scheduled, and all else... You guys put on a HELL of a show. We had a GREAT time and miss you all already. Smile

Made it back a couple hours ago. Nice ride, only hit traffic towards the end. All went well except for a tire blow out, nice pic of that in the WF pics thread. Had a great time, can't wait to do it again.

I saw your wagon in the outlet parking lot. Kayla was dying to go shopping there all weekend. Spent about 2 hours there. We are all home in one piece without any issue. We all had a great time thanks guys!

Thanks Joel, Mike and Michelle and everyone that helped. Great time!

Smooth drive minimal fussing. Got home last night and spent time putting faces to forum posts. Awesome time, great meeting a bunch of other wagon enthusiasts and looking forward to next year. On the hunt for a winter beater now.

I don't think it was. We left the hotel room around 11:20am. What a coincidence.

Hey Tim,

It was wonderful meeting you in person this weekend, if you don't mind I have a quick question, the guy you introduced to me that has that left quarter, what is his name? i lost the paper with his name and number on it and we couldn't get up to Rochester on our way home as my brother wasn't feeling well. I want to get in touch with him and let him know i'm still interested in that panel.

Made it home this afternoon. No issues at all. 2300 miles round trip. Had a wonderful time. Beautiful area of the country and the weather could not have been any better. Really appreciate the hard work by Joel and Mike and everyone else who volunteered. It seemed to be well organized and it was a blast. Even got a nap or 2 in. Being an old fart has it's advantages.

Likewise, Only wish we all had more time to visit with each other.....

We just got home about 20 min ago. I was mistaken. When I got in the car yesterday AM, it said still 1000 to go! DOH!
Made it to Jax, FL last night, after hooking up with Robert for a bit on the Road yesterday.

Odometer says we went 3306 miles round trip. I thought it'd be a little more....maybe the odo isn't quite accurate (didn't test that out).
We are all safe and sound and only minor mishaps along the way.

Worst being the paint chips in my hood....While on I-81 west of Roanoke before I-77, there were a series of trucks that kicked up rocks. I heard 2 or 3 hit the car, but last night counted 17 chips on the hood that weren't there when I waxed the car Friday afternoon Sad

GPS decided it doesn't ant to turn on anymore????? and my boy left a walkie talkie on the roof in NC on the way up that slid off while we were accelerating onto I-95...

I made in back to New Jersey just fine Sunday night, and by good fortune too. I slammed on my brakes hard yesterday and blew out a rusty brake line! I was glad it happened close to home and not on the highway in the middle of nowhere.

Same deal here. I went all the way there and back without drama, then the very next day the upper radiator hose blew off as I parked the car - only 4 miles from home. Hell I thought the whole radiator exploded and I was LMAO at what great luck it was. Turned out alls I had to do was hook the hose back up and add some dihydrogen oxide and all is well.

Thanks again Ian for letting us crash there for the night.

I'll admit it was nice to know that I had wagon folk all along my routes just in case. Why else would I slap together a ride in two weeks and barely road test it before taking on 3000+ trip!

Oh yeah, our cars are bullet-proof that's why, lmao
