[b]Bimmerfest 2015 is now in the books. For all those who did not join us for the weekend of fun here is a trip recap of

what you missed.

Images can bee seen on the photo album here:

Video will be posted once edited so stay tuned for that.

Sacramento group left promptly at 5:00am from Elk Grove and made the trek to Hollister to meet the other member who signed

up for this drive and event. As you can see the weather was rain free and traffic was light for the drive down.

On the way to Hollister we somehow timed it perfectly to meet the central valley CA gang on I5. As we drive over under one

of the over passes we see them driving over and get on the freeway. This was not planned and I am sure we could not have

planned it any better even if we tried.

With an hour still left to travel the now bigger group made a quick stop for the restrooms and to stretch our legs. After

about 10 minutes we all loaded back up and hit the road to make it to Hollister by 7:30am.

Arriving in Hollister around 7:30am we topped our cars off with fuel and waited for the rest of the participants to show

up. By 7:40am we had everyone that signed up onsite. We had 21 cars signed up with one drop out who was replaced by one tag

along. So we started the day with 21 cars to make the 408 mile trek down to Pasadena.

First leg was pretty much traffic free until we hit a local for about 10 mile stretch where they would not pull over.

Luckley they turned off towards King City and we were traffic free the rest of the day on the back roads.

We hit San Luis Obispo around 11:30am and stopped for lunch at Firestone Grill. We waited about 2 minutes before the pre

ordered lunch arrived. They knew were coming and everyone got to experience really good BBQ. So in under 30 minutes we fed

a group of 40 people and hit the road.

After leaving San Luis Obispo we head south then turned east to drive the last of the twisty roads. We stopped at a town in

the middle of nowhere for emergency fuel for a few people. Here we had a scare when one of the participants started driving

his wheel started to wobble. We all stopped and found 3 of the 5 studs sheered. So with some team work we were able to get

the old studs out and get back on the road.

We made it to the hotel around 5:30pm and got everyone checked in for an hour of R&R before we headed to dinner.

Saturday we headed to Bimmerfest early and hit some rain. Funny part it was only raining in the mountains and a little

spilled over as we got close to the venue. The show has changed a lot over the years. Seems to be lest enthusiasts and a

different crowd.

That night some of the gang got restless so we made the trek over to Hollywood to head down Hollywood Blvd. After cruising down the blvd and seeing the usual crazy people, we headed to Sunset Blvd. Turning west we made the classic cruise to the ocean where we turned to head back to the hotel. Was a fun few hour run with a bunch of BMW buddies.

Sunday the planned drive was canceled as the canyons were driving had rain the night before and was forecasted that morning. It was not worth the risk so we let the group know and made our way home.[/b]
