Question Furthest travelled to The 'Fest?

Okay, gang, I've seen threads here and on other boards
of people coming from Texas, from Georgia, from Massachusetts, and beyond.

If you are coming from to Santa Barbara from far, far away, please sound off here.

Trophy will be awarded at the event; just trying to get an idea of what to
expect ahead of time...

Yeah, but it doesn't count if the car is trucked in! Isn't the award for the furthest driven in a Bimmer?

Dude, have the "SoCal Caravan" stop and pick you up. Start a thread with an "official meet time and place." That is unless you're coming from the north, then it would have to be the "NorCal Caravan."

Dude, here's the plan. I am in Mayville, New York all day (90 miles from Buffalo Airport) and the last flight that can connect me to LAX leaves at around 7pm EST. If I make that flight, I am home at 1am and I will see you, semi-tired, in Santa Barbara.

IF I miss that flight, I will take the 6am flight out of Buffalo the next morning. I want to come so bad I am willing to drive straight from LAX to Bimmerfest, although I probably wouldnt make it there until 1pm or so and I would be tired as sh!t. I've got your cell and I'll give you a call Saturday a.m. so you can tell me where you/Jev/everyone is at.

We can hold a contest, who will pass out first, me or teh Jev.

Sounds like you're taking I-40? I took that nice route two years ago. I think you get it only if you DRIVE the car, so you should be good.

I can't fully remember right now, but I'll be driving on I-10 in Texas through CA. I am trying to miss Tornado Alley since there was a bit of them a couple of weeks ago!

I-40 is a much shorter route, than the one your doing. I had AAA do a route for me when i drove out here from Maryland.
mahalo!!

Cool!

I guess I should maybe take a digital pic with my starting milage date stamped & do the same when I arrive into Fullerton, CA and then add the 2 hrs milage to Santa Barbra, hehe...I don't care if I get the award or not. I'm just phyched to be going!

J- Nav might have me driving right through a tornado or 2, hehe. It's that time of season in that neck of the US. Just feel it's better to be safe than sorry!

Oh, by the way, last month I drove from MA down to Ft. Myers/Sanibel, FL & back...I've got roughly 22K miles on the car now & got it last March. Also I'll have new rear tires on her....Got lucky & the Peabody BMW has a set of rear Conti tires that are someone elses, but they are waiting for a pair of fronts on back order They are gonna get another set for the original customer they were for. Getting the tires put on tomorrow morning.
