So I understand there are some coming from Richmond and some from Nova. We need to arrange a meeting spot along the way so we can all ride together. Any ideas?

Everyone get to the parking lot next to Lord and Taylor in Tysons at 6:30. We will hangout for 15 mins waiting for everyone to show up. At 6:45 we will depart Tysons Corner and head to College Park Ikea to meet up with the bigger group. If you get to Tysons and we are not there you can either head straight to College Park Ikea and try and catch up or if your really late just head straight to White Marsh Ikea. <br />

If you guys want to meet up with each other and come to Tysons, i'll leave that to you all do discuss amongst yourselves.<br />

Anyone leaving Richmond can meet up at the Home Depot parking lot just north of the Virginia Center Commons Mall by 4:30.
We depart at 4:45. Have 2-way radios and a nice clean BMW :D.
The final destination will be Tysons Corner around 6:30 AM. The route would be 95 to 495.
Timing is critical as getting to Tyson by 6:30 is the plan. There should be no traffic
so we should be Okay.
Then we would be officially with that group.
I will be in a silver 530i and coming up from Chesapeake.

We are flying in tomorrow from Orlando, Fl and picking up our Dinan Stoker E60 M5 BEAST in Woodstock, MD. We are going to be staying in D.C. Friday night and would really like to join your caravan. The car is being displayed at the BMW of Townson booth at Bimmerfest. So, hopefully we will get there in time to setup and get situated.

Looking forward to it!

On second thought, while looking at the map, it might be better to meet at the IKEA in College park. What do you guys from the area think?

08-23-2012, 09:57 PM
I would just meet up at College Park instead of back tracking. I want to here that stroker M5!!!

See everybody tomorrow! This should be fun!

08-24-2012, 03:36 PM
Yes ! looking forward to it. I also have 2 FRS radios, so anyone in the caravan is welcome to borrow the second one.
