Question to those out there.

1. Would you prefer to drive along the ocean as much as possible

Or

2. Take a scenic drive by a lake on the old Bimmerfest after caravan route and then pick up the ocean in Santa Barbra

This will be my last reminder post. For those who are going, please use the time tables off the PDF on the Bavarian 500 site. Not all locations have a lead car so if you see others there, make friends and follow the plan.

PLEASE bring a two way radio for safety. The official caravan channel is 5.1 or 5.10 depending on radio brand. I recommend Motorola if you need to go by a pair.

If you have any questions please email me at norcal.drivers@gmail.com

I am leading the Sacramento caravan.

If you willing to share your images and video's the link below has instructions how to upload them to the EuroSunday server. You can upload the image and videos without editing if you like and I will process them into albums for you. Please just make sure to add your name so I can give you credit. I will post the link to where the images are in a week once I have hopefully received a few of your images.
