Ended up spending the weekend fixing up the house and fighting off an invasion of wasps. Total killed was 17 and two nests by hand, no poison. Started out with a Mud Dauber Wasp (huge fucker) breaking in through a window. Killed him and that night went out with cocking and started sealing up holes and stuff. Saw two Paper Wasp nests, and it was cold enough I just knocked em down and crushed the fuckers. Next day another Mud Dauber came around and got through the window. This time I watched him do it, and we had a battle of me opening the window, him flying out, closing the window, and him breaking back in. Realized the window is warped at the top creating enough of a gap for it to crawl in. Locked the window and that kept him out, although not for a lack of trying. Window is so warped the top latch only catches half way, but it was enough.

So no one missed any car cleaning.... except my car which is crying for it.

Hallo. Was an active member on the GolfMKV forums several years ago. I'm back now and my MKVII is out of warranty so the fun has begun.

Hey Todd, where are you located? Are you Japanese or just an Otaku like I am? If you are Japanese then I want to inform you that I am using the term loosely, and to describe someone who likes anime and Japanese culture who isn't Japanese.

Since it is only me so far, I have no issues having the drive Sunday. There is a possibility I will go trap shooting at Valley of the Moon Sunday morning. So I though I would advertise Saturday just in case. I'm going to PM you.

Both Paddle Slapper and I got busy last weekend. So planing a South Bay drive this weekend. Not sure on what day yet. Feel free to chime in with what would work best for anyone interested, day and timing wise.

Not japanese. I'm just running out of ideas for creative usernames lol. My MKV did have a Cusco sticker on my windshield and JIC Magic coilovers, though.

I'm out in HMB so if ya'll follow through on an Alice's drive, I'll be there.

P.s. I still have those JICs (Cross Competition Coilovers) if someone's interested. The springs might need to be powdercoated or replaced. Should fit MKV and MKVI if anyone knows anyone.

Doing a drive to Alice's sounds fun. It's only an hour away from me, and after leaving the city the drive is nice. Anyone have a good idea of where to meet? Or meet there for lunch or whatever and do the drive after?

I forgot Native Son's BBQ is at Prohibition Brewery this Sunday... So that's out for me haha.

Earlier is better for Alice's or anywhere on the south coast these days on weekends. The traffic from tourists has become insane over the last 2 years. We could meet in Half Moon Bay and cruise there via Hwy 1 S to 84 E and then 35.

You guys down to meet at Alice's? Maybe grab a bite then go for a cruise? This way we can all gather at a central location that might work for a better turn out.

Also, Sunday works best for me this weekend.

I am game, looks like Todd will be busy, but anyone else is welcome. Anyone who wants to go can PM me with their phone number and we will make it happen.

Figure with Todd's advice about tourists, maybe earlier than lunch? We will see what works best for everyone. If we have a solid group I could see about reservations, but not sure if they do that.

Last call will be Saturday Night I guess.

I'll send a few PM's about the drive to people who have expressed interest in the past, after work. Hopefully we can get more than two!

Sounds like a plan!

Have fun guys! Check out Sacrilege Brewery and Kitchen in HMB and Hop Dogma in the Harbor mall if you have the chance. Two of my favorite places for brews on the coast.
