Repost from Shady1(James)

For those of you new to MFest and you live in Texas my name is Shady1 (James) I am the MFest Texas Chapter rep.

I will be leading the caravan to Las Vegas with some help from other key MFest Texas Chapter members such as Leonelhpfm3 (Rico) and 2005M3driver (Gus) we will be working together making sure everything works out good on the drive to Vegas. Last year we had a few break downs that cause a small delay in time but it was okay , because in MFest we treat everyone like family and leave no one behind on our way to Las Vegas. We always learn new things on these trips and from the last trip we know to bring some type of trailer to haul a vehicle in the event of a break down and we are going to bring our own BMW mechanic just in case :shifty: . Rico will drive his pickup truck pulling a trailer that can haul 2 cars. He will be hauling his M3 on this trailer and leaving a extra slot in the event of a break down along the way :thumbsup2:. If you have any questions or ideas you would like to share please feel free to post them on this tread. For those of you that live down in the south part of Texas I recommend you drive up to Killeen, Texas and link up with us the night prior to the roll out up to Dallas Fort Worth some of the members here in Killeen might let you crash at their house so you can rest up from your long drive from down South. For the guys and gals in El Paso, Texas you know to link up with us in Grants, NM at the hotel. Anyone else from out of state is more than welcome to link up with us as well along the way just let us know the link up point you want to meet up at. I recommend Grants, NM at the hotel.

If you have any questions just send me a PM (Private Message) and we can exchange cell phone numbers and contact information . I look forward to seeing you on the Texas Caravan.

Here are a few pics from Last year caravan :eatpop:

The tow truck had to tow the Porsche away and the custom plate was no longer had the meaning of: TT FTW (Twin Turbo For The Win) it was more like what 2005M3driver (Gus) said it meant. Tow Truck For The Win :lolhit: little did Gus know that comment would come back and Hunt him later

Once we arrive in Las Vegas some of the Texas members had the mobile detail guy hook our cars up from the long trip from Texas we wanted our cars clean for the big MFest caravan link up the following morning.

Once that was done we went and checked into our hotel room at the Palazzo

Once the 3 day MFest event was over we took a last pic of some of our cars in the under ground Palazzo Hotel Vip parking lot for MFest Only cars

And some of us made a small stop at Hoover Dam and we are excited about all the fun we had at MFest and can't wait to go back again at MFest 7 The Super Show Image: http://i792.photobucket.com/albums/y...psb9cea420.jpg
