PLEASE NOTE THE TIME CHANGES

Here's the info for the SD portion of the SoCal caravan:

We will be meeting at the Carlsbad Premium Outlets on Saturday, May 2, 2009 at 5am. I know it's really early so bring your coffee, energy drinks, etc. The address is:

5620 Paseo del Norte, Suite 100,
Carlsbad, CA 92008
http://www.premiumoutlets.com/outlets/outlet.asp?id=66

**The UTC group is leaving at 5:15am and will meet us on the 5. Let's try to get everyone in our group on the 5 before they pass us**

At 5:30am, we'll start heading up the 5 and merge with the OC group at approximately 6:30am on the 405 in Costa Mesa. At 7am, we'll merge with the LA group once we get on the 101 from the 405. At that point, we will be one huge group of beautiful BMWs. This is our goal. However, you never know what can happen.

Personally, I'd love to get to the Fest as early as possible so all of the SD crew can get Concourse parking. Let me know if you guys are up for this. We would need to get there between 7:30am and 8:45am. The fee is $40 instead of the general $20 fee.

Things you may want to do Friday:

- Wash your car
- Gas up
- Check tires
- Pack phone charger, microfiber cloths, bottled water or other drinks

Please be on time. We can't hang around too long waiting for people running late so please plan ahead a little in case you hit traffic, sleep in too late, etc.

Let's take our time guys. Do not race each other. Make sure to obey all traffic laws. I know it's hard since our cars are designed to go fast and kick ass but, let's make this a safe and fun trip for everyone.

I'll add more info as it comes up and I'll be sure to keep this updated. You can email me directly at cristai21@aol.com if you have any questions.

No worries! I didn't forget about you! I was just going to look for the OC leader and I got caught up doing other things.

If your group wants to go with last year's plan, go for it. I've already set up the plan for SD. Some people might still be meeting in UTC but, for us in North County, it just doesn't make any sense to go all the way down to UTC just to come back up. If some people want to meet in UTC, they may as well just come up to Carlsbad since they'll pass right by anyway.

There's also one forming in UTC. We're meeting up with them once they get on the freeway too. Check out this thread and get in touch with slickav I believe he's the one leading that group.

Thank you! I love putting this together. I still haven't heard anything about an official OC plan. Have you? It seems like they might meet up at last year's spot but, it's not definite yet. Soon I hope!

I got in touch with the OC leader and I'll call him when we're about 10 minutes away from their spot at IKEA. Since they're leaving at 6:30am, I need to change our times too.

So far, we have about 14 in our group. I'm not sure how many people are in the UTC group yet.

We also need to get as many walkie talkies as we can for our group. It'll make it easier to communicate with each other once we're on the freeway.

I live in San Clemente (south Orange County, just north of Camp Pendleton) and am about 90% sure I will be attending this year (depends on size of this upcoming paycheck). I would love to meet up with your group as you traverse north into Orange County.

You're more than welcome to join us! The OC meet is probably kinda far from you huh? I'll pm you my number so we can work out a plan for you.

Are you going with the UTC group? There are a few people from around your area meeting up then going to UTC. I think they'll meet at Plaza Bonita first.

One of the guys coming with our group wants to carpool with someone and he'll share gas money or parking. Let me know if anyone wants to do this and I'll put you in touch with him. Thanks.

I don't know if anyone is still subscribed to this thread but, I hope so because I've been meaning to post this since last weekend. It's just been a hectic week. I just wanted to tell you guys that I'm very sorry for the confusion and chaos with our caravan. I know that I screwed it up by heading our group out too early.

To those of you who stayed with our group the entire way there, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! I know it was a drag having to drive so slow while we waited for the other groups to catch up with us. I wish we could go back and do it again because I've learned a lot from this experience and there are a lot of things that I would have done differently.

I hope that everyone doesn't hold it against me forever. I'd appreciate any feedback from you guys whether it's good or bad. Thank you.
