I Am The Machine
Oh man, that's killer. 5? I know it's longer, and 101's not the most thrilling highway in the world, but anything's better than 5. It seems like on a 400 mile drive, going the extra 50 might be worth it to not have to take that hell of a freeway.Hi everyone doing the Bay Bimmerz/Nor Cal Caravan. :wave:
I was informed today that Kris can no longer handle the caravan, so I will be sending out the Evite in the coming week, or sooner.
It will be different from the past caravan's that I've put together. I will only be doing the Pleasanton stop, beings I live in Pleasanton and will be leaving from there and heading over the Altamont and head down boring ol Hwy 5. It's 50 miles out of the way to go Hwy 101 to Pasadena, so for me and others that want to join me, will be going Hwy 5.
Believe me when I tell you how bummed I am about this, but I/we have to do what I/we have to do. I do not have time this year to do what I've done in the past, but it kills me to stand by and watch this caravan fade off in the distance, so to speak.
If there is anyone that wants to step up to the plate for a South Bay meeting point, please let me know ASAP and I can add the place, meeting and departure times to the Evite I will be sending out. I know there are MANY people that are in the South Bay and prefer to go down Hwy 101, so hopefully someone will step up.
Sooooo, I'm in the planning stages of getting the 400 plus address list for the Evite out in the coming days. I'm looking for a half way point for fuel, bathroom break and to stretch the legs, so after I figure these few details out, the Evite willl get out.
See you all soon! :thumbup:
On one hand I'd love to help organize a 101 caravan for those of us in the S Bay that'd much prefer it, but on the other I really hate to split the caravan. The more cars the better, and having everyone on 5 might be better than having half the cars on each fwy. You sure you don't wanna come down via 101 Keith?
+10000Keith, you rock! Thanks for getting/staying involved. :thumbup:
Sorry to hear Kris, hope you can make it!!!Thank you Keith for taking this back - really sorry I can't handle the caravan given my current workload. This is the first time I've turned on my laptop in 5 days! I've been relying on my iphone while working hard doing customer demos in Atlanta. Doesn't look like it'll slow down and doesn't look like I'll even make it to Bimmerfest this year
