    Question to those out there.

    1. Would you prefer to drive along the ocean as much as possible

    Or

    2. Take a scenic drive by a lake on the old Bimmerfest after caravan route and then pick up the ocean in Santa Barbra

    Let's figure how to get all these caravans to converge and have BimmerBoost roll in like the bosses we are.

    This will be my last reminder post. For those who are going, please use the time tables off the PDF on the Bavarian 500 site. Not all locations have a lead car so if you see others there, make friends and follow the plan.

    PLEASE bring a two way radio for safety. The official caravan channel is 5.1 or 5.10 depending on radio brand. I recommend Motorola if you need to go by a pair.

    If you have any questions please email me at norcal.drivers@gmail.com

    I am leading the Sacramento caravan.

    I hope I am not the only one who took images?

    Here are some of the images from the NorCal and Pacific North West caravan and group. For more images of the event see http://www.norcaldrivers.com/albums/...13%20-%20Adam/

    A side note, I have already starting planning 2014 to make this more of a experience weekend with other activities and not just Bimmerfest.
