Caravan sucked unfortunately, everyone driving to their own beat instead of in a pack.

Yep. As always, everybody decides to show off and floor it and leave every car spaced out a quarter mile in between eachother. It's mostly the teens in their M3s, backwards hats, saggy pants trying to show everybody how fast they are. I ended up leading a small group of 4 or 5 cars and I almost led them the wrong direction cause I didn't know where I was going. Also, when the "leaders" exited the lot, they made a right. This made GETTING ON the freeway take 10x longer than it should have. You were supposed to make a left, then a right. That way, we would've got on the freeway in one group

Yup. Next time we will have to put together a special "cruise" caravan. I was looking forward to the caravan almost as much as going to the fest!

yup. who was the chick in the E46 convertible doing like 90-95? she couldn't wait. lol

I went a little faster than I wanted to just so I could see if there was any chance at catching the group. No luck. Never even saw them. They must've been doing 100+

Oh well

mafia used to have a cruise. i dont think he does them anymore. not sure. but a drive up to the canyons would be cool then just go back down to the valley. Fridays would work best for me, personally.
