Can't wait. Rent a uhaul trailer and put dougie inside.

as far as spots, by the we get in (after waiting in line for an hour) we usually get pushed towards the back =( pull some strings and get us some awesome spots!

I haven't been to a Bimmerfest since 2007's event. Since then, I've had some tough financial decisions to make and ended up driving a VW Rabbit around for quite a few years... now that I have my E46, I am going to this year's Bimmerfest!!! Words cannot describe the feelings I'm experiencing in anticipation. Bimmerfest 2013, I will be there with a giant smile on my face.

Just out of sheer curiosity, how long are you anticipating the drive over there? Also, what steps are you taking to prepare your car for that long of a drive? Very impressive, btw. There is, however, a Bimmerfest for the east coast as well... I'm not sure really how that compares to this one, though.

I've been to the east one every year since it started.

I have a good list of stuff for preparation. I'll pm it to you
