fun meet!

I was the one driving slow in the lowered black m5. I had my pregnant fiance in the car as well as a tire that is beginning to wear down so I had to be careful

1) Pace should be set and held. If people want to go faster then they can go ahead of the group and wait at the next stop. -- The first section, from HR-> Ladysmith was fine, there were only 8-9 of us and open road at 5-6am so we could fly, but once we hit 95 and traffic started getting heavier then the pace should've been set.
2) If you're going to make a lane change because the car in front of you, not part of the caravan, is going too slow, open it up for the rest of the group. Make your lane change and then slow down and leave a gap for the people behind you to merge over, too. Otherwise only 2-4 cars may make it over and the others will be slowed down and then the caravan is split.
3) The caravan kept getting elongated after the first two stops which is why we had about 6-7 cars get split off (See number 2). I was following the car in front of me who was following a car in front of them and they cut 4 lanes of traffic to take a, what ended up being wrong, exit.
4) For the toll section, just pull off to the side with Emergency Lights until everyone is through.

No way you're gonna get such a large group to move so orderly on 95.

This should of been posted earlier. I can't agree more with what was said above. Very frustrating with some guys doing 100+ and some holding back to 65-70 mph. In VA anything over 20 is reckless and that's not something I wanted to go through.

The two stops before Ikea was crazy. OMG I'm glad no one got hurt. I was kicking myself in the head because I'm familiar with the area and I stopped and followed them. There was a 5 series behind me who followed me too. We ended up on the parkway going the wrong direction. lol

I honestly thought I was cruising because a lot of M3s were passing me. Then I looked down at my speedometer and it said 90mph, so I slowed back to my regular roll.

I rolled into the century a few times. It's so easy in these Ms. But I honestly wasn't watching my speed as much as I should.
