Not sure. Last year we meet in Gilroy around 11am. So probably around that time.

Cool, when people say early I think before 8 or so. Gilroy at 11 means forming up the Tri-Valley contingent around 9:30-10.

EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You tellem Jay!!!!!!!!!!!

Tell me what you think of this plan?

Meet at Nordy's at 9:00am, depart at 9:30am, arrive in Gilroy "approx" 10:30am (remember the sh**ty traffic last year)and fill your bellies and gas tanks in Gilroy.
Depart Gilroy "promptly" at 11:30am and head out for
"Bimmer Heaven" in Santa Barbara/Cutter BMW.

Oh, Cliff, if it was me, I'd leave at 6am, but I "know" not many could handle that.

Oh, and Rob, take a fricken day off, sheesh..........................

Works for me Keith. You may want the evite that goes out to remind people to use their heads and fill their tanks before showing up BTW, is the crew using GMRS-FRS radios for caravan communications (and/or drives in general)?

I myself will fillup at the 76 station right next to where we all will meet in Gilroy.
As far as handhelds go, I will have my Talkabout 2-way and cell phone.
I wish I had a V1.

Dunno Jon and Clem and I are still talking. I'll put the pressure to 'em. Jon may take the Beemer (bike) now.

My "fresh meat" backed out due to cost.

It may just be me hooking up with you guys and we'll have to hunt Jon and Clem down at the 'fest.

If I'm running alone I'll leave here at 0 dark 30 in the AM.

My V1 is on order (2nd day air) should arrive today.
I've got spare Talkabouts too.

Car should be ready by mid-March (goodies arriving daily)

Hey, if it's just you, so what, we will have a great time regardless.

Great, if you leave that early, you will be fine on getting here at a decent time.

There's still lots of time for anyone to join you, so get the word out and see what happens.

Nice, bring all the Talkabouts you can, I have two as well.
V1, the only way to go.

I plan on having lots done myself by mid-March, sub-frame bushings, sway bars, tires etc........................

Cool Where I live

Yes, I just recently signed up for the mailing list. I met a few E39ers in San Jose last month, and will probably meet up with them at some point. We had a fender-rolling "clinic" and did a sound-deadening install, and also painted a bunch of bulbs silver. It was pretty fun. Krispy Kremes and German beer too!
