Are there any caravans leaving from the Chula Vista area to head up to the Socal Euro meet? I have about 5 other cars with me but would like to make it a little bit bigger.

Thinking about making my own thread about it, is it a good idea?

Typically i don't care how other people drive as long as it isn't dangerous. But you guys should watch out for an asshole driving an mid 2000's white F250 or F350*raised, offroad tires, and modded with the a CA license plate 2409B1 . Was driving back home tonight in the rain from fallbrook on the Old Highway 395 after dropping my relative off. Tried to legally pass a him a couple times on the straight ways but he kept accelerating, blocking, and slamming on the brakes, essentially trying to run me off the road, i wasn't even driving enthusiastically or agressive. Anyway's you guys should watch out.

Lifted trucks in Fallbrook are common mostly due to high redneck population, you should be able to pass a regular f250 or 350 with no problem, and maybe he thought it wasn't safe to do at night in the rain, especially on that road, I drive there alot
