**official 2009 bimmerfest los angeles/valley caravan!

ATTN: ALL OTHER CARAVAN ORGANIZERS PLEASE CONTACT ME SO WE CAN HAVE A MORE PRODUCTIVE, AND THE BIGGEST CARAVAN IN BIMMERFEST HISTORY!

CONTACT: LEEORSHLOMO@GMAIL.COM


Alright everyone, here's the info for the Los Angeles contingent of the So Cal caravan!
SAME ROUTINE AS LAST YEAR!


-General Information-

The Los Angeles portion of the caravan will meet in the parking lot behind Ross, located at:

13750 Riverside Dr.
Sherman Oaks, CA 91423

at 6:30 a.m., May 2, 2009, the morning of Bimmerfest. We will leave at approximately 7:00 a.m., when the San Diego and Orange County portions of the caravan will be merging onto the 101, from the 405. A representative from the Southern caravan will contact us at a set distance from the merger, at which point we will get on the 101, drive the two miles to the 405 and the two caravans will merge together, becoming one huge, BMW entity. This is the goal, of course you never know what might happen. Regardless, we will all work towards making this a safe, unforgettable experience.

With that in mind, there are things that the organizers encourage and others that are notů

Please be on time- The caravan will consist of hundreds of enthusiasts and unfortunately cannot wait for people running late. If you live far away, please come early and plan ahead in case of traffic.

Obey all traffic laws- We cannot and do not advocate the running of traffic lights, stop signs and any other posted traffic laws. This includes the speed limit. With this many cars together (many of which modified) we may draw the attention of the police. What we are doing is not illegal, but we do not want anyone stopped by the police.

Do not race and/or draw undue attention towards yourself- This includes aggressive take-offs at stops and any other behavior that is dangerous or illegal.

Have fun and thanks for participating! For those curious, both Mapquest and Google Maps were used for these directions.


-Arrival-



From East
101 North
Exit Woodman Ave.
Right turn onto Woodman Ave,

From South
405 North
Merge onto 101 South
Exit Woodman Ave.
Left turn onto Woodman Ave.

From West
101 South
Exit Woodman Ave.
Left turn onto Woodman Ave.

From North
405 South
Merge onto 101 South
Exit Woodman Ave.
Left onto Woodman Ave.

All Directions
Left at first intersection onto Riverside Dr.
Left at break in divider into parking lot
Head straight past Ross and Westfield Shopping Center Parking Lot
Left turn into parking lot behind Ross (Watch speedbump)


-Departure-



When we receive the call from the Southern group, cars will leave from both sides of the parking lot.

Those closer to Woodman Ave.-
Make a right at the Eastern driveway
Right at signal onto ramp to 101

Those at the other side of the parking lot-
Using the driveway that you entered, make a right onto Riverside Dr.
Right at signal onto Woodman Ave.
Right at signal onto ramp to 101

Once on the 101 the rest of the caravan will merge together via the 101/405 merger and will continue on to Santa Barbara.


CHECK LIST:

* Walkie-talkie (Strongly recommended, but not mandatory)
* Full tank of gas (Nearest gas station: 76- Riverside and Woodman - check map)
* Tire check
* Quick Detailer
* Microfiber cloth
* Mask tape (if you don't want to get rock chips on your bumper)
* Sun block (It is going to get hot as hell)


THIS INFORMATION MIGHT CHANGE, AND YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED WHEN IT DOES!







THANKS AGAIN!

this is the same location as last year, correct? Hopefully the OC Caravan won't be running late this year so we can all cruise together to our destination. I'm with everyone for being ORGANIZED and PATIENT

Yeah someone should be posted at the exit of the parking lot and don't let ANYONE LEAVE until we get the signal from the other caravans to do so. WALKIE talkies and coordination. WE CAN DO IT!

I live in thousand Oaks and Last year I guess people gathered at the Circuit City off Lynn before going to SB. Its a great place to meet up before because they just went out of business and there is well over 100 parking spots!! Let me know what everyone thinks

If someone can PM me if they know where the E39's are meeting cuz I cant find anything on that. Thanks
