e34_sleeper 04-27-2004 03:30 PM

lets go
 
I didn't think there was any BMW lovers out here, sheesh I never see them. Me and my friend are leaving around 8am. email me if you want to meet up. My friend says that he is bringing about 4 other people. So we can have a mini-caravan

JT///M3 04-27-2004 10:44 PM

hey fellas, I'm from Rancho. We should meet up and then caravan up. There's gotta be more IE people than this. I have 2 other 3 series comeing along. We can get a mini caravan and meet up with LA caravan if you like.

antetr95 04-28-2004 09:23 AM

Cool. Where do you guys want to meet and what time?

JT///M3 04-28-2004 10:14 AM

location: Fairplex exit parking lot off I-10
time: 6:30-6:45 meet, leave 7:00 am to meet up with LA caravan at 7:45

bring your FRS radios

yahoo maps says its a good 50 mins to get to balboa park. we have bimmers and V1s so I say we get there in less than 40 mins without traffic.

hope to see you guys there!

Coming From Temecula
 
I would like to join your caravan. Where exactly is Fairplex, I can't remember

antetr95 04-28-2004 11:56 AM

West on San Bernardino Freeway (10) to city of Pomona. Exit at Garey Avenue. Turn left and go underneath freeway to McKinley Avenue and turn right. Continue on McKinley to Fairplex. Or, continue on freeway to Fairplex Drive and proceed as above.

antetr95 04-28-2004 12:01 PM

JT,
Where is the Fairplex exit parking lot located?

JT,
Where is the Fairplex parking lot

JT///M3 04-29-2004 01:27 AM

sorry I wasn't more clear. When you are heading west on I-10 and you exit Fairplex, you will see the parking lot right next to the freeway. Exit and take a right and it will be on your right hand side. Don't actually go all the way to the fairgrounds, which is all the way up the hill and down further. The parking lot where we will meet is visible from the freeway. I'll try to get there a little early and park my car facing the freeway offramp so you guys can see. It'll be the Cosmos E36 M3 with a Topaz 325Ci and a Black 325Ci. Hope that helps!

antetr95 04-29-2004 08:14 AM

cool, thanx. See you guys there.

Oh nice, a meet beforehand :) Are you sure there's a Fairplex exit? I live in Pomona and I don't recall a Fairplex exit...I do know Dudley St. though (which is on the I-10 W) which comes up after the fairplex. Can you tell me where the Fairplex exit is? I would wanna meet up with you guys so we can all head to Balboa Park together. I think we should leave by 6:50 AM though, just to give us some extra time (we don't wanna miss the LA caravan to SB!)

Let me know the final details so I can meet up with you guys, I'm pretty sure you guys need an Estoril Blue up in there!

JT///M3 04-29-2004 09:38 PM

I hope I didn't confuse everyone. I drove past this site today. I saw that the exit is Fairplex Dr. Its one of those 2 part exits, the kind that you enter and the first exit is something (Dudley like you said) and a little further down, there is Fairplex Drive. I saw that the parking lot is not visible initially until you actually have already passed it (if you hadn't already entered the exit lane earlier at Dudley. After you exit Fairplex Drive, you go up the hill and take a right onto Fairplex Dr. Then you proceed up further and turn right at the first street (Gillete Rd) and make your way downwards toward the parking lot that is next to the freeway. M3teknitian, correct any of this if it is wrong.

JT///M3 04-29-2004 09:46 PM

there is a Fairway Dr. exit going both East and West on I-10. If you're coming from west going east on I-10, exit and take a left and proceed up the hill and take a right at Gillete Rd. M3teknitian, if you are in the area, can you confirm this info. Thanks!

m3teknitian 04-29-2004 11:22 PM

Hey, I just saw the mapquest and buffed my memory a bit, and yep, the directions you gave are perfectly correct. It's a good meeting spot too, not too hard to spot. I'm down for that area!

Oh yeah, just to make sure we're all clear on this...we're still gonna meet up with the rest of them @ Balboa Park right?

JT///M3 04-30-2004 10:29 AM

yep, we're meeting with the LA caravan hopefully at 745-8ish. I already contacted the guys that are running the LA and OC caravans as to cordinate our meeting and departure as a group. We should be good that day. one more day!

Kruzin 04-30-2004 11:00 AM

i'll be there too!! from riverside, i could take the 60w to the 71n to the 10w and get the dudley/fairplex exit right?

antetr95 04-30-2004 11:53 AM

Kruzin,
I think you have to take 10east from the 71. I believe the junction is west of the Fairplex exit. Check to make sure. So what time are you leaving Riverside? I might stay at my friend's house in Riverside tonight. I was thinking of leaving Riverside around 5:45 am. I'll be right off Tyler.

now we're talking caravan :)

WilliamsKR 04-30-2004 01:39 PM

I'll meet you all there at 0630. It will be my first year. Is it safe to bring my 15yr old daughter???

antetr95 04-30-2004 03:29 PM

So how many cars are we looking at for the caravan from the Fairplex parking lot?

m3teknitian 05-01-2004 12:37 AM

Yeah its safe ^_^

Alright dudes, I HOPE you all are gonna be there, I don't wanna be the only one at the parking lot....

So the final location goes as follows:

Exit FAIRPLEX DR. from the I-10 going WEST (before the CA-57 N)
PARKING LOT should be immediately visible after you exit off of the freeway, where the meet will be.
Arrive between 6:30 AM - 7:00 AM, leave for BALBOA PARK around 7:15 AM or so.

Antetr, JT, wanna confirm that for me? See ya guys there!

WilliamsKR 05-03-2004 01:55 PM

It was nice meeting you all. Definitely next year again. Dont forget Oktoberfest in Pasadena in July 4-7. Hey William, the road rally was great. It was worth the wait. You definitely would have loved it.
