Route 66

If your driving take the classic route 66, Americana at it's finest. And you'll head through
the GREAT Southwest!

Geez Keith. Everyone knows the only reason anyone from the bay area goes to the 'fest is to be a part of the BayBimmerz caravan!

Have a little confidence in the guy.

Have fun with the trip, man! Me and a couple buddies crammed in my E28 and drove from Milwaukee last year - this year will be our second trip out. Driving is not that bad, all though we do stop in Vegas for much needed drunknezzz.

DO IT MAN!!!! If you've got yourself a wing man the switch n sleep should work! Just don't push the limit. If you need a couple of hours more sleep, take it. Don't force yourselves to stay awake.

All you need now is CB radio and call yourself Bandit and play "East Bound and down" but sing along saying "West bound and Down"

I've circumnavigated the US from Baltimore to Cali and back a couple of times. The northern route is the most scenic, the southern route has more truck traffic. Indianapolis the first night, Des Moines the second, Cody (WY) the third, Auburn (CA) the fourth (but we stopped in Yellowstone for a few hours). If you've never been out west before, you'll be stunned....take the time to enjoy it.

Came back through Vegas, Santa Fe, Oklahoma City, Bristol (TN). Great way to see the USA. Drive safe, stay with/watch the truckers and you will be all right. See you in Carpinteria....
