I attended my first VW meet at Sherwood Island State Park in Connecticut on April 7th. It was called Dubs on Defrost and I was quite excited about going. It rained and was cold the first week of April and I was beginning to think I'd never get to wash the car or vacuum it beforehand. The weather cleared up on Thursday, so that was my pre-meet clean up day.  I clean it regularly anyway, if you call washing it at least once a day and usually twice a day regular. ;) Because of the rain though, it hadn't had it's bath for about 5 days or a vacuum. I got it ready to go and counted off the remaining days

I mapped out a slow poke route. I try to avoid any high speed highways or interstates. Joy and I kind of like moseying along. I've never had anyone on the road get aggravated at me for going so slow up those hills, but it does make me nervous to be running 15 mph under the posted speed limit with big rigs running up behind me. I feel very, very small at those times. We took the back woods route and enjoyed the drive and the scenery. Western Connecticut is beautiful and it was such a sunshiny day at the beach. I had a great time and met lots of wonderful people and saw a lot of lovely cars. I also won the Best Air Cooled  award. What a pleasant ending to a very nice day. 

Peace and joy VW lovers... Till we meet here again... :)
