This article delves into some details on what constitutes "eating together" for the requirement of zimun. I see that there is a dispute regarding what happens when some people leave in the middle or others join at the end.
Let's say you have a group of 10 people travelling in 2 cars that follow each other constantly - 5 in each car. All 10 people stop at a rest stop, wash hands, and are about to sit together at a picnic table when they see a funnel cloud in the distance. They jump in their cars, and since they made the bracha for washing hands, they eat bread in the cars.
About an hour later, they meet again at another rest stop. They don't eat anything, there.
Can they make a joint 10 zimun saying Elokenu? (They washed together and had intent to begin together and they are one "group") Or, should each group of 5 make their own "3-person" zimun while riding in the car?
