*Important things to remember*
-Enjoy the drive, this is NOT
No need for it, we will have at least 200 BMW's (all models) going to Bimmerfest from Socal in the caravan. The freeways are only 4 lanes wide and there will be others on the road that Saturday morning...you can figure it out. We will get there in time, there's plenty of parking as it is the fairgrounds and not the dealer. Be cool, enjoy the drive with your fellow enthusiasts and let's all get to Bimmerfest safe & ticket less.
-Yes, CHP & local po-po know of this caravan, some are members of the different boards and do drive BMWs. So, do not ask if they know about this caravan.
~Prep your cars the night before: check tire pressure, oil & coolant levels and get gas.
~If you have Walkie-Talkies, bring them. We will let you know what frequency we'll be using at the meet points.
~If you have radar detectors, bring them.
~This will a long drive for most of us, bring something to keep you awake and alert. (i.e.: soda, water, snacks, significant other, whatever!)
~Bring, at least, $10 for entrance fee into the fairgrounds.
