Bimmerfest Caravan Route, in case anyone missed it

The San Diego caravan will be meeting up at the Starbucks at Carlsbad Company Stores (located on Paseo del Norte off Interstate 5 between Palomar Airport Rd. and Cannon Rd). The meeting time is 5:30 a.m. and the departure from there is 5:50 a.m.

The San Diego Caravan will be arriving and meeting up with the Orange County Caravan in Huntington Beach at around 6:45 a.m. at yet another Starbucks (I am beginning to see a trend here; everyone will be up so early that we all need coffee!!). The Starbucks is located at 7777 Edinger Ave. (Directions are as follows: From 405 N+S: exit Beach Blvd (heading towards Huntington Beach). Make a right onto Edinger. Make a right at 1st traffic light and that will lead you into Huntington Beach Plaza. Starbucks is towards the back.) The Orange County Caravan will be there waiting for us, since they will be arriving at the Starbucks at 6:30 a.m.

Both the San Diego and Orange County Caravan will leave that Starbucks together at 7 a.m. sharp. We will then be heading towards the Los Angeles Caravan, which will be meeting us at the Balboa Sports Center. The Balboa Sports Center is located at 17015 Burbank Blvd, Encino, CA 91316, near where the 101 and 405 meet.

The combined caravans from San Diego and Orange County will arrive at the Sports Center at about 8 a.m. (Prior to the Los Angeles caravan meeting at the Balboa Sports Center, it will meet up in Glendale and caravan to the Sports Center together. If you are planning to caravan to the Sports Center from Glendale, you'll want to meet up at the In-and-Out Burger in Glendale. Directions to In-and-Out as follows: From 605/210 (Pasadena/Azuza), you take the 210 W and get on the 134 West (Ventura freeway), you get off on Harvey, make a right, and it's the first driveway to the right. It's got an In-N-Out and a Rusty Pelican in the lot. If you are coming from the 134/5 (Burbank/The valley), you'll take 134 East towards Glendale, you get off on Harvey, make a left, go under the freeway, it's the first driveway to the right. The Glendale caravan will meet at 7 a.m. and head towards the Balboa Sports Center at 7:30 a.m., with an arrival at the Sports Center at 8 a.m.

The Balboa Sports Center marks the combination spot for the San Diego/Orange County and Los Angeles Caravans. We will all leave the Sports Center at 8:30 a.m. and head towards Santa Barbara for Bimmerfest 2002.

When we get into Santa Barbara, we will all exit the Las Positas exit and head straight towards Cutter Motors. (Jon Shafer says the Las Positas exit is optimal because the offramp is about a half mile long and we will not back up traffic as we exit the 101N -- unlike the Hope Street exit, which backs up traffic on the 101N.)

The caravans should be pulling into Cutter Motors at around 10 a.m.

With the new updated schedule of events, shouldn't the caravan meet an hour earlier? I would hate to miss part of the clinics, but I also really want to be a part of the caravan.
Any thoughts?
Count me in as part of the Orange County Team!

If you want to join us for the San Diego Caravan, before we head to the Carlsbad meeting spot, you can hook up with us at the Texaco station (by the McDonald's) that is in Sorrento Valley -- at the end of Mira Mesa Blvd., near the 805 (east side of the freeway). We will be meeting there at 5:15am. and leaving there shortly thereafter.

If you are going to meet us there, i will add you to the SD caravan list. Just give me your first name and the year of your car.
