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.

Thank you to all who came on the NorCal drive down to Bimmerfest. I hope you had a great time driving down.

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.

I hope I am not the only one who took images?

Here are some of the images from the NorCal and Pacific North West caravan and group. For more images of the event see Bimmerfest 2013 - Adam

A side note, I have already starting planning 2014 to make this more of a experience weekend with other activities and not just Bimmerfest.
