Cool Texas MFest VII Caravan..."The Supershow" May 24-26

Wassup Fellow Forum members As the Title states it is that time again!

Last year, Matt (Randomquickness) wrote a thread, this year I'll use most of his same thread but tailor it for this years Central Texas MFest Caravan.

alright Texans! MFEST 7 will be Memorial Day weekend of May 24-26th!

I will update this thread accordingly. Last year we repped TX well, this year we're putting TX on the map!

We are meeting the DFW & H-town crew in Fort Worth on Wednesday May 22nd at 8:00am and depart at 9:00am, spend the night in the Route 66 Casino just west of the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico (10.5 hour drive), and arrive in Las Vegas Thursday afternoon on the 23rd (7.5 hour drive).

This will give us time to get settled in and get the cars shined up before the events. We should depart sometime Monday and stop somewhere to sleep on the return trip (TBD as from experience, some of us recover from the weekend differently).

Now last year, there was confusion on the meeting spot in Ft.Worth. the McDonald address was a mile from the Highway when there was one off the exit on the opposite side. well this year, we will meet right off the highway at a mongolian grill called the Genghis Grill with plenty of parking and a smooth entry onto the highway on our exit!


Departure Date & Time: Wednesday, May 22nd 8:00am
Location: Fort Worth

Start Address: Genghis Grill
6600 North Freeway
Fort Worth, TX 76137-2044

Spend the Night, wednesday @ Route 66 Casino
Address
14500 Central Avenue
ALBUQUERQUE, NM 87121
United States
Phone: +1 505 352 7866
Fax: +1 505 352 7828
Email: reservations@rt66casino.com

Link up with the El Paso, Texas crew in Flagstaff, AZ by lunch

there they will have an update on a 2 hr FUN run. depending on how were doing on time and whether any of us want to partake in that run then or on the return..


End Address: TBD (Las Vegas, NV)

Itinerary: these times are based upon the speed limit
1st Stop: The Route 66 Casino west of Albuquerque, NM (arrive approx: 7:00pm) spend night, depart at 8:00am on ____
2nd Stop: Las Vegas NV (Hotel) (arrive approx: 6:30pm)

If you have any concerns let me know.

Items to consider bringing with you:
- helmet
- Motorola 2-way radios
- Radar Detector
- Basic tools for your car
- Spare tire (if you have it)
- 5 hour energy shots
- snacks
- A Cooler w/ YOUR Favorite drinks in it
- Batteries & there charger
- AAA for the unexpected or
- The phn number to an Auto transporter/broker just in case catastrophy strikes and you need your vehicle brought back home
- EMERGENCY FUNDS if possible

feel free to let me know if you think something should be added to the list.

**also, if you live anywhere south of Killeen and would like to stay at my house Tuesday night before we leave just let me know.

pricing last year was:

$150 (males) $60 (females) to register
$145/night (4 nights for the TX folks) for the hotel
$60 for drag strip
$160 for the road course

The only thing that's mandatory is registration but from personal experience I highly recommend staying at the Hotel that is selected as the "Host" Hotel as it is the hub for all things MFEST during the trip.

Obviously, splitting the hotel room with someone is a quick way to save money.

lets get this roster started!

Talking Thanks for Starting the MFest Texas Chapter Caravan Thread Rico

For those of you new to MFest and you live in Texas my name is Shady1 (James) I am the MFest Texas Chapter rep. I will be leading the caravan to Las Vegas with some help from other key MFest Texas Chapter members such as Leonelhpfm3 (Rico) and 2005M3driver (Gus) we will be working together making sure everything works out good on the drive to Vegas. Last year we had a few break downs that cause a small delay in time but it was okay , because in MFest we treat everyone like family and leave no one behind on our way to Las Vegas. We always learn new things on these trips and from the last trip we know to bring some type of trailer to haul a vehicle in the event of a break down and we are going to bring our own BMW mechanic just in case . Rico will drive his pickup truck pulling a trailer that can haul 2 cars. He will be hauling his M3 on this trailer and leaving a extra slot in the event of a break down along the way . If you have any questions or ideas you would like to share please feel free to post them on this thread. For those of you that live down in the south part of Texas I recommend you drive up to Killeen, Texas and link up with us the night prior to the roll out up to Dallas Fort Worth. Some of the members here in Killeen might let you crash at their house so you can rest up from your long drive from down South. For the guys and gals in El Paso, Texas you know to link up with us in Grants, NM at the hotel. Anyone else from out of state is more than welcome to link up with us as well along the way just let us know the link up point you want to meet up at. I recommend Grants, NM at the hotel.

If you have any questions just send me a PM (Private Message) and we can exchange cell phone numbers and contact information . I look forward to seeing you on the Texas Caravan.

Here are a few pics from Last year caravan

Time to round up the MFest Texas Chapter caravan and head the wagons West to Las Vegas

Everything was going good along the way Randomquickness (Matt) was leading the way in the Twin Turbo Porsche


Matt in the Porsche was leading the way until....!!! Yeah you guess it the arrow took him out The BMW Gods got angry
The front diff was toast from the arrow strike

The tow truck had to tow the Porsche away and the custom plate no longer had the meaning of: TT FTW (Twin Turbo For The Win) it was more like what 2005M3driver (Gus) said it means. Tow Truck For The Win little did Gus know that comment would come back and Bite him later


This E46 M3 is 2005M3driver (Gus) car take a good look and READ his rear bumper


I think the Porsche God got back at Gus for making fun of Matt car breaking down.

Remember Gus bumper well Matt decided to get even for his comment about the Porsche: Tow Truck For The Win

Once we arrive in Las Vegas some of the Texas members had the mobile detail guy hook our cars up from the long trip from Texas we wanted our cars clean for the big MFest caravan link up the following morning.

Once that was done we went and checked into our hotel room at the Palazzo

Once the 3 day MFest event was over we took a last pic of some of our cars in the under ground Palazzo Hotel Vip parking lot for MFest Only cars

And some of us made a small stop at Hoover Dam and we are excited about all the fun we had at MFest and can't wait to go back again at MFest 7 The Super Show

Lets Make this Caravan big and Rep Texas Hard

Sounds like fun...I will have to save up my pennies and see if I can take leave then.

Would anybody be interested in taking the scenic route back, I-40 is so damn boring and I know the American southwest very well. It would add maybe half a day to the trip. Why drive a Beemer on the freeway the whole time, gotta have some curves!

89A to Tonto National Forest then Showlow to Socorro, Socorro to Ruidoso, Ruidoso to Roswell then Roswell to Lubbock to Killeen. Amazing trip

Plus 89A has amazing scenery if you know what I mean...
