So, just finding out about this today. I'm Matt Marshall, currently my career sets me as an inside sales rep with commercial vehicles. More specifically, commercial trucks. I've had a dubs for about 2 years now, and yes, it is my first. I have a 2012 Golf 2.5

I'm all about a German engineered vehicle. I'd love to get to know more and I'm glad to be here.

Just a quick glimpse of my ride taking on 2 Coopers.

2004 Golf CL , 101k
Bought it last summer and fixed it up, Noob VW owner despite being a driver for 30+ years
Hoping the dub will work out ok for me. So far so good.
I've seen you guys hanging out at the Star of the Sea last year.
Saw the dub collection there yesterday, thought I would join up and say HI!. :crazy:

I am Craig Frazier, from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I found your group while doing research on our tour of Newfoundland in our 1967 Westy. My wife, Linda, and I will be on the island from the 8th to the 19th of September 2015 (arrive at Channel Port aux Basques from leaving Argentia). We would like to meet folks on the way, get any suggestions for VW gatherings, cool places, and camping, as well as create a safety net on our route (shops and mechanics), and, of course, invitations to share alcohol and food (not just your alcohol and food). I would like to hear any caveats, such as long spaces between fill-ups, your NS/NL ferry experience and road conditions. Twelve days is not much time to leave the main roads but we would try to meet up with anyone who responds. Between Ferries we will be at the the National Parks, L'Anse aux Meadows, and St. John's.
Thank you for allowing me to use the group to communicate. I will post in this thread unless someone suggests otherwise. There is a thread in the Samba's Split Bus forum too.
Cheers,
Craig

Welcome to the site Craig! I'm sure some other members will chime in with some knowledge.

Can you clarify how you're arriving? Generally people arrive from NS via ferry and either land in Port Aux Basques, or Argentia.

We arrive at Port aux Basques and leave from Argentia. That one misplaced preposition did make it hard to understand.
