February 03, 2018 - Trail Of The Wagens, A VW Driving Experience
San Antonio, Florida
Facebook Twitter

***PLEASE CHECK THIS PAGE FOR UPDATES****
The event might have some more information or minor changes posted in the coming days.
https://www.facebook.com/events/155488051662427/


It’s time for a VW driving experience called The Trail of The Wagens!

Welcome to the inaugural event. The goal is to provide a low cost (in this case, FREE) event to have fun with our VWs. It is my hope that we can do this drive at least two times per year. Your support for future events will be appreciated.

The Trail of the Wagens driving experience is a tribute to the beautiful and ever so fun “Tail Of The Dragon” twisting mountain drive in North Carolina. Of course, we have no mountains in Florida, but Pasco county is home to some of the most beautiful and diverse landscape in all of Florida. On this 50+ mile drive you will experience the beauty of rolling hills, lush forests, sprawling farm land, beautiful lakes and valleys, and even orange groves. You will also feel the adrenaline rush of many exhilarating twists and turns. The Trail offers an energizing scenic ride that few in Florida ever get to experience.

I traversed many miles of roads and spent many hours mapping a route that everyone could enjoy. The driving experience had to meet specific criteria. 1. The roads had to offer incredible views with twists, turns, hills and valleys, and offer scenery that Floridians rarely see. 2. The roads had to be paved and smooth, so any VW could ride the “Trail.” 3. The route had to be fun and memorable! This route delivers on all three!
It doesn’t matter if you drive a 1950 Bus or a 2018 Beetle. It doesn’t matter if you bring a lifted Baja or a slammed low rider. Everyone will enjoy the Trail Of The Wagens!


Preparation.

FILL UP YOUR FUEL TANK!
Sorry, was I yelling? There are NO gas stations near the start of this ride. The drive is over 50 miles long. There are two possible gas station stops along the route but they are well into the drive.
Check your VW prior to this trip. These roads are through rural country with few areas to pull over or make pit stops.
Use the Bathroom before we depart!

What should I bring?
Yourself, obviously!
But also bring a co-pilot and your cameras too! Take a ton of photos! Roll the Go-Pro video! Bring your video drone!! We want to combine the awesome footage and share it with everyone!
Bring CB radios or walkie-talkies. Yes, we are kicking it old school. Don’t forget the batteries! The plan is to keep in touch throughout our journey on the trail.
Bring tools and any spare parts you think you might possibly need.
Bring some folding chairs to sit in and relax
Bring a cooler with drinks, snacks, or a nice picnic lunch.
How about bringing my GPS?
Your GPS will be mostly worthless on the drive. This driving experience is designed to bring maximum enjoyment by offering the most exciting roads and the best scenery. Because of this, we will do back-tracking a few times during the trip. If you try to use a GPS to map the final destination it will take you the most direct (and likely the least fun) route. But have no fear, we’re including turn by turn directions and a map! Equip your navigator or study the route ahead of time and guarantee a great driving experience!

Itinerary
Saturday February 3rd 2018
12 PM Noon.

We begin our journey at the San Antonio Athletic complex located at 12750 Oak St, San Antonio, FL 33576.
Here, we will gather to check out the VWs and take some group photos. We will also hold a driver’s meeting before we roll out.
You will be given a map of the route with turn by turn directions. Don't lose it!

NOTE: This is your last chance for a bathroom break before we begin the drive.

*****If you care to arrive earlier, I suggest going down the street to the beautiful and quaint town square of San Antonio for lunch. Local favorites include Pancho’s Villa Mexican Restaurant located at 32804 Pennsylvania Ave, San Antonio, FL 33576. Or, if you prefer some southern cooking, head down the road for a minute and you will arrive at On Q Smokehouse Grill which is located at 33030 FL-52, San Antonio, FL 33576. Both eateries offer amazing food!


1PM
Begin the Trail Of The Wagens

The start of our journey will take us around the small-town square of San Antonio, FL. From there we will head North and begin the main trail.

El BugO in El PasO! V.W. Charity Car show and swap meet

Held the first Sunday after Easter.

El BugO in El PasO is an all VW car show. The show started out with the goal of giving the VW community in southwest Texas a place to come hang out and enjoy their cars. This show is open to all VW's air or water, show or not. It is about the cars, the owners, and the culture. It is not all about the trophies. 100% of the profits go to a local charity of our choosing. . We hope to be a non profit status show this year as well so that we can donate more and grow more.
This year we will be having a limbo contest and foot powered drags (I don't know what else to call it) with teams of 2,3, or 4 pushing cars in a short slow drag race.
We are also working on other events for entrants and especially the kids.

Find us on facebook under El BugO in El PasO or contact me at [email protected]
Come on out bring your grills, coolers, canopies, and have a good time with some great VW peeps

The Golden Gate Chapter of the Vintage Volkswagen Club of America will be hosting their 34th Annual Spring Meet at History San Jose at Kelley Park in San Jose on Sunday, April 22 from 8 am to 3 pm. All air-cooled VWs are welcome.

All cars entering the park MUST register for the car show and MUST park in their respective class. We will again be providing pre-registration and will open on March 15. Please visit our website at www.ggcvvwca.org to pre-register. You will be able to pre-register your car but will pay at the front gate the morning of the show. After parking your car please go to the club booth to receive your registration materials. The cost to enter is $20 for driver and car and each additional passenger is $5. Children under 12 are free. There is NO pre-registration for swap. Swap pays at the gate. If you would like to be a sponsor or a vendor please contact Rick Spohn at 408-683-0154 after 7 pm.

Please note there is NO alcohol, NO pets, and NO BBQs allowed inside the park. These are park rules and must be obeyed. The park has asked us to make sure everyone packs up and leaves immediately after the show is over. This has become a problem the last few years and has jeopardized our club to continue to have the show at the park.

Blessing of the Buses -- May 5, 2018

In keeping with the spirit of “The Blessing of the Bikes” typically reserved for our Hell’s Yuppies friends, please join us on May 5, 2018 for The Blessing of the Buses!

The Blessing of the Buses is a spin on the ever popular Blessing of the Bikes. This second annual Blessing of the Buses is scheduled for Saturday, May 5, 1018. It is a rain or shine event and is open to anyone owning any of the four generations of VW buses.

Father Angelo Maggos, a former bus owner, will perform the blessing at 11:00AM at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church located at 2245 East Baldwin Road; Grand Blanc, MI 48439 with lunch at the Church to follow the blessing -- if faced with inclement weather, lunch will be inside the Church Hall.

For those of interested, a group of contiguous campsites will be reserved at Groveland Oaks County Park ((248) 634-9811) located at 14555 Dixie Highway; Holly, MI 48442. The park is an approximate fifteen minute drive and nine miles from the Church. Campsites are classified as modern having both electric and water service; a fire ring is also resident on each site. Additionally, hot showers and full toilet facilities will be open for our group. We will also have access to a pavilion where live music will be provided beginning early evening. BTW, you can camp the evening before the blessing. Make your reservations directly with the campground but please contact me to confirm and review details.

Our vision is a well-intended get together among like-minded folks and to grow the event into a regional kick-off of the VW Bus camping season in Michigan. We encourage you to mark your calendars and please keep in touch with event hosts Jim and/or Liz Christopher: [email protected] or (810) 217-1280 - Jim's Mobile.

Stay well and look forward to seeing you May of 2018! And, don't hesitate to spread the word….

77709 Wolfach, Germany
Facebook Twitter

Dear Vintage Volkswagen friends,

The first international Vintage Volkswagen Event took place already several years ago, but stayed - despite of the bad weather - in good memories.

Receiving a lot of positive feedback led easily to the decision, to invite you again to our beautiful home town.

Together with the city of Wolfach and the local associations, we will organize some beautiful hours with nice entertainment and hospitably service and catering.

Especially for this event, the inner city of Wolfach will be closed for all the traffic, to provide enough parking facilities for your vehicles.

So our little town will become one big automobile exhibition, that offers all visitors a sense of travelling back in history.

We will offer the following:

• Presentation of the "Schwimmwagen"

under optimum conditions, the owners of the "Schwimmwagen" do have the possibility to water their vehicles

• Big original parts market

for sure you will find something there or you have the opportunity to have good conversations at the booths

• separated camping area

for all guests, that arrive with a tent or directly with their "rolling" vehicle

• Program for young and old

Mark your calendars for July 27-29. Were happy that Lava Mobile Estates Campground has asked us back for a second year. Everyone loved our location last year, with the perfect location for exiting the river after tubing. Lava Hot Springs, Idaho has so much to offer for everyone. A olympic swimming pool and water park right down the road from the campground. And multiple bars, restaurants, and hot pools right off main street. Were very happy to host VW's from multiple states including Wyoming, Montana, Utah, and of coarse Idaho.
