As Westiva 2017 draws closer things are starting to get more exciting.
Greg Williams is a writer for Driving.ca (among other things) who published an article about our first big road trip back in 2011. I've kept in touch over the years and he has always included Westiva in the 'upcoming events' section of his articles.
His latest article, published on-line just yesterday, features Ben Rogers of Lexington, Kentucky as he prepares his Festiva, named Frito, for an epic 6000 mile road trip that includes a stop at this years edition of Westiva. Ben's route will take him through seventeen states and three provinces.

Just last year he did a 9000 mile tour of the US in Frito! His route included stops in Arizona, California, Washington and more. A part of that trip was a stop at the 2016 edition of Festiva Madness in Raleigh, North Carolina, the same event we attended back in 2011.
