2012 Volkswagen Beetle Long Term Road Test

2012 Volkswagen Beetle: Road Trip to Santa Fe

October 27, 2012


Tomorrow our long-term 2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo and I will set out for Santa Fe, New Mexico. It's a work-related adventure, so I'll leave in the wee hours of the morning with the goal of making a meeting scheduled for dinnertime. That's 860 miles, give or take, plus a switch to Mountain Time.

The drive back to Southern California will be slightly more relaxed, so I'm taking suggestions for cool roads or restaurants to try along the route. Or, more to the point of this entry, if you have specific questions about what it's like to road-trip a Beetle, post those here and I'll try to field them all.
