    You guys missed out! We had about half the group follow me. there is some nice road, some decent twisty sections, Nice long straits, minimal traffic, and good scenery. There is a reason why I live in the area I do.

      That's why we do the back roads, to enjoy driving our cars.

      Enjoyed the road less traveled, and for caravan purposes, people are supposed to play leap frog by turn. If you make a turn, you wait til the followers pass then you pull up the rear and you carry it on so nobody gets left behind. I did this once and realized the train was broken.
      Sorry all. I usually incorporate a drive or two to break up the freeway drive. I took my normal route after avoiding 1/2 of I-5 after the picnic again, and it proved enjoyable as always.
      After the tragedy of 2012 in Olympia with Carlos' car, I avoid that stretch in a caravan if I can.

      Til next year all!

        Man, I didn't know this. This was the first time I had ever lead a group. I'm sorry I left everyone. Next year, it will not happen again.

        If we do the 507 to 510 to 7 route from Centralia next year, I will have to make sure everyone knows all the turns, or at the least give people my number. :(

          It's just a break in protocol. No biggie. I had an idea of taking that route before we left and it worked relatively well. Thank you for taking point.

            We'll just catch you guys next time. Ryan's M3 had developed an oil leak, and that's why we were fine with just heading there straight from the gas station..

            It was cool seeing everyone there, if even for a moment!

            Are any of you all thinking of hitting 5'er West? They moved it to the Oregon Trail Interpretive center. All years/models are invited..

              Is that still on? Last I heard the planning fell apart and it was left abandoned. I guess worst case, we all meet up anyway, talk cars, grab food and go for a drive. Lol

                When and where? my new work schedule is a little more friendly to car shows. My daughter was really bummed that she wasn't able to be here for this years picnic. I think if I was able to take her to a different BMW show, that might take the edge off.
