I figured that since we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of our beloved 914 all year in 2020. idea.gif And since the Route 66 Classic is the kick off for the event season. shades.gif We really ought to set the proper tone and start with something epic! first.gif

How about a 914 mile, 5.0 day, 4 night, 3 time zone, 5 state, traveling party. cheer.gif
Are you with me? assimilate.gif

Of course there will be event shirts this year. (It's a tradition.)
However, things will be a bit different this time. happy11.gif


Shirts will be FREE! flag.gif

The catch is that there will be only 10 shirts produced.
They will be awarded to the first 9 people to join the tour. smilie_pokal.gif

When traveling across the country I use 40 and stop in Amarillo at Tyler's. He runs out of baby backs by 3 every day. He is one of the 2 places that I considered to make ribs better than mine. The Shed is better because they never run out of baby backs. Something I try not to do.

John-

I’m following this thread, but can’t commit to attending right now.
Time will tell.

My 2 yr old grandson remains in treatment battling Leukemia. (Cancer sucks!!!)
So I can’t stray too far.

Thanks for stepping up and heading RT66 this year. beerchug.gif

Betty read this thread the other day and mentioned it to me.

If we come, we get to drive to Amarillo first, 5 h 21 min (343 miles) . Then coming home, it is 17 h 30 min (1,150 miles) from Laughlin, NV. to our house. That makes for a long trip for two 914s without co-drivers. Got to take two days. And the 4.0 engine doesn't get the best mileage either.

Posted by: VegasRacer Jan 21 2020, 10:14 PM

Steve - Fabulous. I will see you in Colorado Springs for the Treffen. I sent you a PM with my phone number.

Oscar - Commitment?!? No one will ever question your commitment to the 914 community. icon22_2.gif You also have your priorities in the proper order. Family first.
I sincerely hope you can join us. Even if only for a day.

Clay & Betty - Please join us in Amarillo. (When has a 914 event ever been closer?) You don't have to make the entire run, start to finish. (In fact, I never expected that anyone would be crazy enough to do the full distance with me.) I will promise you that the drive from Las Vegas to Albuquerque, above and around Santa Fe, will be the best 914 roads on the entire tour. (Not counting the short banzai run into Oatman.) MDB2.gif

Is that serious about starting in St. Louis next year? There's limited opportunity for involvement in such events here in Tulsa (through which, incidentally, Route 66 passes).

I just saw this. Sorry, I don't think its going to happen. We both agree... a 914 loaded up with tools, spares, and luggage is limited fun on the twisty roads.

But it would be fun seeing y'all.

1.) This forum is the place to find information about all future Rallies, Tours, Treffens, Classics, Rambles and other 914 events.

2.) I can assure you that if I am the one planning, we will not be starting in St. Louis. If we are going that far, we are gonna do it proper and drive the additional 300 miles to start in Chicago at the beginning of Route 66.

3.) Don't give up hope. A few months ago nobody would have believed that we would be starting in Amarillo this year.

4.) There is nothing stopping you from organizing a midwest / eastern Route 66 event.

The exact geometric center of the US is a few miles northwest of Lebanon, Kansas. I is in the middle of the Kansas prairie.

The stone marker is the exact center. Considering there are no twisty roads for hundreds of miles, I don't want to waste time going there in a 914. If you find someplace with twisty roads where everyone could meet, I would go.

That’s quite an epic journey in the making! I’d be remiss if I didn’t swing by and say hello since you folks will be within a couple miles of my home. I will probably have started my new job in ABQ around then as well, though I don’t think I’ll have a lot more time, I should at least be home every night instead of on the road every week.

Would be good to see you folks! I’ll check back in before the event.

Great looking Cayman Mark. The front tire looks a little flat.

Thanks.

Yeah, that was the one of pix in the ad - it's been patched and full of air now.

Cruise-control 66 mph all the way home as my wife was following in her new Outback and she hates driving the freeways driving-girl.gif ... the test drive was more 'spirited' aktion035.gif

Mark, I am happy you know how to copy and paste. type.gif

I will glady congratulate you on a fantastic purchase if you can prove it by posting a photo from your own camera on the 'Cayman Owners Roll Call' thread. poke.gif

Maybe mañana ... I vacuumed and cleaned the interior this afternoon. Then ordered some Mobil-1 (0-40W), some K&N oil filter cartridges, a dash cover and a car cover.

Since I purchased it during the virus outbreak, maybe I should name it 'COVID' confused24.gif

Only bummer - I'm not planning to register it in CA and it looks like I won't be able to get the paperwork to ADOT in AZ real soon Attached Image ... dry.gif



Also ... thinking I'm gonna ditch the side stripes ... at least the ones ahead of the front wheels idea.gif

Thanks Mark. thumb3d.gif
You have always been a team player.

My God, John ... you're so hard to please laugh.gif

The pylon is there to keep the wife from backing into any more vehicles ...

Well, I couldn't make this event regardless but now I don't have to deal with FOMO I suppose. Sorry you had to cancel, JP. Looks like I'll have to wait until fall to hook back up with everyone!

I was going to roll in the Boxster. But they already cancelled our Moab hotel for next weekend, so I was afraid this event was going to be a Covid-19 casualty.

I'm getting so bored working from and never leaving the house. It's been almost 3 weeks for me already because I got a 'regular' viral cold on Monday 3/9. They did the mandatory 'work from home' the following Monday. Haven't been back to work since, and barely past the driveway.

Took the dog out for a joy ride in the 914 today though.

How cool is that. aktion035.gif
Everybody who pre-registered should also receive a certificate.
(We are definitely going back to La Posada next time.)

Posted by: euro911 Apr 1 2020, 01:25 PM

I called La Posada and Riverside Resort to cancel my reservations back on March 24th. The gal I spoke with told me that they would be crediting the $ back to my CC confused24.gif

The gal I spoke with at the Riverside told me that they were closed until sometime in April and that I'd have to call back and speak with the GM after they open again dry.gif
