I've done this trip a few times over the years. I'm sure I'll make it down for at least some of this event.

It would be nice if some of the 986forum folks got a chance to meet.

The last three have been a fantastic good time; unfortunately we're going to miss Boxstoberfest 2010. I'll be thinking of ya'll and praying for top-down weather that weekend. Someone needs to volunteer as photographer so the rest of us can drool over the Porsches and twisty roads!

I will be there with my 16 year old son. He may drive a little bit. Depends on both of our comfort levels and his still shifting the Porsche. He is learning to drive a Jeep Wrangler I bought him (95, excelent condition and a stick). I think everyone should be able to drive a manual.

Finally time for Boxstoberfest! I'm leaving the office early tomorrow and getting down there asap. Can't wait to meet some new Boxster enthusiasts.

My kid is 16 and my wife brought up that very same point. It only took me a few minutes to let me convince her that I should put a bid in on a Boxster (Ebay) so he could have something to learn on.

Well, I got my Boxster but I'll be damned if I'm going to let him use it in order to learn to drive a stick.

Oktoberfest begins in mid-late September. This year 9/18. So we're only a weekend off.
