Amsterdam to Roswell is 5156 air miles. That would probably get the farthest Beetle Traveled trophy, Dave would get the runner up slot being about 2419 miles from Orlando if he goes to Chicago with us.
That is unless of course we get someone from Alaska or Greenland to attend!

Our Maine friends as well. LOL
I see Rhonda, Sue and I are on the Roswell "ground" team. Can you tell us exactly what that is?
Glenn Mason and Rubee
Last year Rhonda had her cousin? pass out flyers around town to let the shops know we were coming and contacted the radio.
Sue was telling me she would be available to check out any locations we were looking at for the show and also could swing by the hotels.
That kind of stuff...scouting or contacting folks locally. Maybe even helping with the Road Rally/Scavenger hunt if we need some local-ish folks to help plan.
I believe some do bring their kids. I'll be solo, because I have a teenage daughter and wife that are not into events like this at all................I'm lucky if they show up at my local VW club show for half an hour once a year........
Looks like Roswell Cosmicon is the same weekend, but it doesn't look like that big of an event - located at the Mall and Holiday Inn is the host hotel.
Might be worth checking out when we have down time.
But also probably need to get our host hotel set up.
Yep- we've had activities for the kids in the past- hotwheels races, beetle decorating contests and games. Just be sure they're prepared for the high temps

Float like a Beetle, sting like a porsche
I don't remember if the chosen hotels there had laundry facilities or not. After driving from Florida to Chicago and then down Rt66 to Roswell I am going to need to do a load of laundry!
We stayed at the Comfort Suites/Inn when we went in 2011. We stayed in a whirlpool room. I suppose I could just dump some soap in there and wallow around with my dirty clothes on. Sounds like the makings of an epic party to me!
We will have something like 5 more days to go till we get to LA on Rt66 so I am sure the group going with us will appreciate me not smelling awful!
308 Days until IBT2015
316 Days until Roswell
