Here is all the information, and the link to the event page on Facebook, for the caravan to the Madera VW Spring Fling on 4/28/13 that we've put together. Hope to see everyone out there!

Madera Caravan Event Page on Facebook.

Text from the event page:

Straight Up Dubs and NorCal VDubs Sacramento Chapter are pleased to announce that we are putting together a caravan to the Madera VW Spring Fling on April 28, 2013.

If you were around the VW Scene in 2006/2007 you may remember that all of the Northern California VW Clubs got together and did this for several years in a row. On several occasions we had 60+ VW's in our caravan. We are very proud to be bringing this back! This caravan will be for the entire VW Community. Both air and water-cooled Volkswagens are welcome and you do not have to be club affiliated to participate.

-Event details are as follows:

Caravan begins:
4:00 a.m. meet / 4:15 a.m. departure from Bugformance Sacramento, located at 1620 El Camino Avenue in Sacramento.

Caravan Stop #1:
5:00 a.m. meet / 5:15 a.m. departure from Unocal 76 Gas Station just off of Highway 99 at the Kettleman Lane Exit in Lodi.

Caravan Stop #2:
Approx. 6:15 a.m. meet / departing 15 minutes after arrival at Turlock Rest Stop off of Highway 99.

Caravan Ends:
Arrival at Madera County Fairgrounds for the 19th Annual VW Spring Fling at approximately 7:30 a.m.

- Caravan Rules / Additional Info:
1. No burnouts, donuts, or other reckless driving.
2. No alcohol or drug use.
3. Pick up your trash before we leave each stop.
4. When parked in a public parking lot, please refrain from blocking traffic / driveways.
5. When driving in the caravan, please follow all traffic laws. Stay in line and do not block traffic. Much of Highway 99 is only 2 lanes.
6. The pace of the caravan will be the Speed Limit or approximately 65 mph.
7. If you break down or have a problem with your VW the entire caravan will not be able to stop. We anticipate cars to be spread out over a couple of miles and it will not be safe to try and stop everyone.
8. Straight Up Dubs and NorCal VDubs are in NO WAY associated with or affiliated with the VW Spring Fling in Madera.
9. Everything you do during the course of this caravan is at your own risk. Straight Up Dubs and NorCal VDubs assume no responsibility for anything that happens. Nobody is responsible for you except you.

Yah, I thought it was a good idea. I'm going to post it again.

For anyone that can't leave with the main group at 4am-4.30am, there is a small group of us leaving between 6am-6.30am. We can meet at Bugformance between those times and leave by 6.30. Very Happy

What speed will the caravan do? I'd like to join but I can only do 50-55mph towing the Eriba. Don't want to show up and then hold back the pack.

You hope we get up to 55-60! Dewey is slow! LOL

I'm not sure how fast the main caravan at 4:30 am will be going, but with my little experience with caravaning, they are usually slower toward the back. Meaning the front could be doing 65, but by the time you get to the back of the pack, they are only doing 50-55.

Okay, I'll just take the caboose spot and see if I can keep up. 55 on flat ground is no problem. I need some duel carbs for a few more hp and should be fine in the future.

Great day at the show yesterday. We had 4 vehicles there and 6 on the way back. Our caravan had no issues there or back, however we did stop to help out a group of people who were broke down on the way home and helped them get on their way home. Good day all the way around, oh and Lita won a pair of new tires Smile

Lita and Dewey,



Misc. pics from the show.










I don't care what you all thought of this bus, I liked it. My favorite color is purple! LOL







On the way home.




We gave Lita a ticket for parking in the Bus Stop! Very Happy






The bus broke down and we stopped to help. Dropped one of the guys off at Uhaul so they could get a truck and trailor to get the bus back to Oakley.
