Hello,
I am looking to find fellow owners in Northern MN. I live in the Duluth area and would love to meet some other people with Touaregs.

Hi,
My wife and I visit North Shore 3-4 times a year and spend ~two weeks a year in Grand Marais and on the Gunflint Trail. We always stop in Duluth for a few hours (love to visit Rose Garden near Leif Erikson Park!). We know Duluth quite well (mostly tourist places) and like to eat at the Pickwick’s. We own land in Grand Marais area, but we will not live there permanently for a while/yet. I may send you a PM next time we’ll be traveling there, which is most likely will be Valentine’s Day extended weekend.

P.S. What do you drive or you're still looking to buy? There was a picture of white Exec stuck in snow plow berm at the driveway entry in Duluth in December 2012. This Exec has very specific-looking kayak racks. I’ve seeing this very same vehicle couple of times (as some other members reported too) - near Lutsen and Bluefin Bay. Are you by chance the one who drives her?

That would be great to get together sometime. Just let me know and we will see if we can't work something out.

No I do not own the one that you described. I actually just bought mine this past weekend from down in the cities. Its a 06 v10 tdi. Black on black.

The CT member Horton from Twin Cities (if I remember correctly) drives 2007 V10 TDI. I think he's originally from somewhere up the North Shore. You might want to send him PM if he won't reply to this thread.

I'm in the St Cloud area. Just bought mine last week too, found it in Rogers.

Normally when I go to Duluth, which is a few times a year, I'm on my Victory. However aren't there some fantastic OHV trails just north of Duluth, in Gilbert (Iron Range Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area)? I'm not looking to do anything advanced, but wouldn't mind getting out on some trails, especially up there.

Webwzrd, small world, I am originally from St. Cloud. That's pretty cool

Yes there is an OHV park up in Gilbert. I had taken a look at their website when I first got my Jeep, thinking it would be fun to take that up there. Never did.
But who knows, might be kind of fun in the Touareg.

Here is a link to their website, take a look: OHV Trail Detail: Minnesota DNR

What's funny is I've been driving an '02 Explorer 4x for the last several years and although is a capable rig, I never even had the thought of exploring any of the many off road trails Minnesota has to offer. I get the Touareg and now am quite interested. Maybe it's because it's so much fun to drive and enjoyable to be in. On the other hand, I thought the Explorer was pretty cool when I first got it, but there's really no comparison.

Hey guys. Scrolling through recent threads and I happened upon this one. ConservativeConsumer is right. I live in Saint Paul but hail from northern MN. My wife and I visit northern MN / Duluth somewhat often. I was considering a trip next weekend -- but we aren't sure if it'll be in the V10, or my new-to-me 2010 BMW 335d. The Treg in our family is actually my wife's daily driver ;) I haven't taken a road trip in the Bimmer yet and I'd like to before snow flies.

I'm subscribed now. Consider adding Kriewer/Kreiwer. He's in Brainerd, IIRC.

Horton,
I should be around town. I don't plan on going any where next weekend. Should you and your wife come up. As I said, I would love to meet some other owners and get to know some new people.

And I completely understand wanting to play with your new "toy". That's what I have been doing ever since I picked up my T'reg. So far I have put close to 1,000 miles on it in a week.

Perhaps we could connect next weekend. Just let me know. PM me if you would like to get together.
