Yes, I'm interested in the WestCoasters doing it and taking lots of 
pictures. You will have some good stories. My Rabbit might make it out 
there, but would end up buried next to the ocean, or in the mountains on 
the way home.....possibly me along with it. I turned 77 this month.

The Rabbit needs a clutch plate and I could use......don't go there Doyt.

I'm testing the rebuilt vacuum pump tomorrow. Stopping distance from 60 
without the booster is about 300-400 feet.

Figure the trip from Ohio and back would cost about $1,500.  I think I'll 
spend it overhauling the 85 Jetta TD.......new head gasket, O-rings in the 
pump. And I'll stay home this summer and tend to my tomatoes.....planted 36 
of them last week.  Beefmasters 'Lycopersicon lycopersicum' , Early Girls, 
Whoppers, Roma, Sweet Cherry-100's. We enjoy growing tomatoes in the side 
yard. We don't eat them all...give away lots and lots of them....but they 
grow so well out there that I just put in 15 more over the year before. I 
talk to them every morning. You probably talk to your apples.

Like I said, take lots of pictures.
