NorCal - 2014 Bimmerfest Caravan

Hello Gang,

First let me say I will not be attending this year. Wife and I are expecting our first child the same day as Bimmerfest. So there was no way I could argue out of that one HAHA.

I am posting the route I lead last year for Bavarian 500 guys. There are a few people on this thread and a few others that will be taking over in my stead. To help them out I have made a signup sheet so as we get closer I can relay the information out. For 2015 I have great weekend planned which I was not able to lead this year. So if you can't make this year, next year will be a blast.

Sign up here

2014 Bimmerfest NorCal group drive


1. Drive down - Friday May 16
Drive from Northern California to Pasadena . Lunch will be in San Luis Obispo along with a fuel stop for those who need it. Dinner will be at Slater’s 50/50 for burgers, beer and stories at 7:30pm till you are tired.

Slater's 50/50

Official starting point for the drive down to Pasadena. Once the drive leaves this location, we will be using the following timetables for each check point with a plus or minus 10 minute factor. If you are not at these locations, or are not with the group at the time of departure, you are on your own.

Rally Point
Meet Time: 10:15am
Address: Valero - 50940 Mesa Verde Rd, King City, CA
Depart Time: 10:00am – 10:30am
Fuel stop and restroom break. This is also the rally point for those in the Central Valley of California caravan to join the main caravan. This stop will be as fast as possible in order to keep the group on schedule for the remaining check points.


Lunch Stopping Point:
Meet Time: 12:45pm
Address: 297 Madonna Road, San Luis Obispo, CA
Depart Time: 1:30pm

Lunch and second fuel stop for the group. Choices for food are, Chipotle, McDonalds, Applebee’s, Panera Bread, Deli (local), IHOP, and Denny’s. The group will roll out at 1:30, so make sure to be ready to roll.

End of the drive:
Arrive Time: 5:00pm - 6:30pm (Depending on traffic)
Address: Super 8 Pasadena, 2863 E Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA
End of day one after a long but fun day of driving. Dinner will start at 7:30pm.

3. Hotel Information
For reasonable room rates the Super 8 Motel Pasadena. Single Queen $84.00 a night including tax
For those who are on the SUPER tight budget, rooms at the Rodeway Inn & Suites across the street for $71.00 a night. You must call in and book the room on your own. They are a first come first serve.

Not sure if you guys are interested but I can have a set of decals made for the trip down.

Cost would be $25 for a set, shipping and fees included. These decals are the same style I use for my overnight drives so I know they are safe to use on paint.

Thoughts?

Just a bump.

Also decals measure 8.5 X 11 so they fit all BMW's. If you want them PM me for payment details

First decal number claimed. Image will be updated as people request numbers so refresh the thread to see what has been claimed. Also to make it easier I made a order option on the norcal drivers site. Easier for all this way to pay and select numbers.

There could be but I would just plan on meeting Holister on your own.

As I have had a few PM's from other forums. If you would like a decal please order them from the link below.

Put in your top number, letter, or 3 charter combo and I will send them out mid April. You have till April 30th to request these so I have enough time to mail them.

ORDER DECALS HERE

I'm not thrilled about the organization of the caravan up there this year. I hope the meet up will start at M8trix as well.


OP: early congrats on the baby

If you guys wish I can relay to all the norcal threads to meet at Casino M8trix at 7:30am and leave by 8:00am? That would get you to Holister in time.

Let me know and I will post it out there.

Radio, Radio, Radio.

Please remember to bring or by two way radios before the event. This helps in safety and keeps you in the loop of road conditions. Also knowing where Johnny Law is helps.

http://www.amazon.com/Motorola-MR350...+two+way+radio

Amazon has them at a good price with the link above.

Lastly remember to sign up on the Google doc as route and other drive details will be posted there.
