  1. There are several potential inquiries and from experience a lot of people will indicate an interest and then drop out .. there are a couple of other feelers out there, but this (DC) is closest to home. Please add my name to the list. One MINI. Prefer Seattle return since that's where the event ends & I'll need to get home .. (My MINI was trailered out to Portland for the start of 2018; I've got a 13 year old car so I throw a car cover on it and we're good. I believe it was about 1/2 the cost of enclosed trailer. Let me know which way you're leaning so I can decide. Thx)
  2. This is soooo on my list; unfortuantely I will be heading out of town and don't think I can wait until after the run to do so. If for some reason I can work out the logistics, I'll join in .. have a great time
  3. I shipped WINIFiED "to" Portland in 2018 for ~$900, to the MINI dealership there. But I had to drive to Atlanta for the truck and then buy a one-way plane ticket back from Atlanta. It actually worked out really well but would love to see a group doing same out of DC / Phila area to not have to drive so far. Can't justify shipping both directions, so will commit to driving to Albuquerque, likely a speed run ((2) 12 hour days with one overnight) I'd like to say it's too far so I'm just not going .. but I know myself better. There will be a lot of chatter and I'll get afflicted with FOMO ..
  4. That's more than we've usually gotten by this time each year
  5. Looks like we will have great weather for this event on Saturday. So far 10 going (including several first timers) on the Carlisle MINI Meetup page, join us!

  8. If anyone is interested in either of the following, with regards to MOTM, please post. 1. The Great Ice Cream Run 8. Leaving Staunton VA on Sunday July 30th to MOTM. The daily itinerary is posted below - join up at whatever point works for you to cross paths. 2. The "speed run" back East on Sunday August 6th. For those who are out of vacation time & need to get back ...and would rather roadtrip with other MINIs! Meets at Sea Shell City 7075 Levering Rd Chebogan. (Time TBD but we usually leave before the event breakfast ie by 8am to get on the road. Return DC/MD/VA/PA same day.) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1A4RPlAYn6AiT4ciYXKjKGLamuQutYq2n/view
  9. Tires & / or tire life? Any dents / rash? Thanks!
  10. Thank you Lori for a fun event and for getting the weather to behave! Though I've been in this area for nine years (and believe it or not used to come up from NC for DC Metro events occasionally when I lived there) we definitely hit some fun roads I had not been on before .. such beautiful scenery! When we were stopped at a red light, Jerry and I were talking out loud (is there really any other way? there's my early Sunday AM brain composing a sentence) that if the other non-MINI vehicles stopped in traffic saw 4 MINIs with both MD and VA plates, would they think we were together or would they think it was a co-incidence? Four MINIs would seem to be the quandary point - at 5 MINIs it would be a "definitely planned" gathering -- but in fact at 5 MINIs it was not See you again soon. I will get the drives together that I have promised, just have to look at the calendar. (Except for the Great Ice Cream Jog, that will definitely be July 29)
  11. Just signed up - there will be two of us in one MINI; though not sure what the plan is if the weather is rainy? Will keep an eye on the board .. fingers crossed for a weather clearing!

    Club Picnic and Car Corral

    Awesome pictures -- everyone should have a great keepsake of the day. Thanks for taking them - I know it was hot out there! - and thanks for sharing. First time on a track with this MINI
  15. Should be there around 11.
  16. Will bring cutlery Will bring + 1 Will probably meet at the track (late night planned Saturday, but if can meet at RP, will, but don't wait) Can't do anything about the weather, unfortunately .....
  17. There are links posted now to sign up for the drive to the track, the track event, and the club picnic being held in conjuction with the event in case you haven't gotten a notice. (Note: the "food" part of the track event should probably be updated with the picnic details?)
  18. First link = 404 error. Success on the Facey-one. Fun pictures, thanks for sharing. Something clearly looks wrong with that overhead of MINX MINI - oh, wait, convertible on a beautiful day with the top up, that's it .. It was a little after 3:30 - Perry was pulling out, a 2nd MINI leaving also (Scott maybe?) and when I asked the parking attendant he said the MINIs had left. Apparently they didn't know I had choco cake to share. I don't think I have the # for anyone on the run so couldn't text ahead a choco cake warning .. boo.
  19. Fun time - fun roads - great weather. Just what we want for MINI'ing. Sorry to bail at lunch -- I did try and catch up at Bear Chase after lunch - with chocolate cake in tow - but looked like everyone had left or was leaving. Thanks for organizing and making sure everyone had fun. I was kinda sorry I didn't have lunch in Middleburg. Next time. Stay safe, y'all!
  20. Question: The PDF shows meeting at Leesburg C&C, but the run is on Saturday, and C&C at Leesburg Public House is on Sundays; where is the meetup / start point? What is the lunch plan? Restaurant or BYO picnic? Has a reservation been made for lunch somewhere? Thanks - making plans to meetup and do at least the first leg of the drive to Middleburg - but may have to drop out, possible conflict for the afternoon. Thanks
  21. For those who are new to the group that I was talking with on Sunday about other MINI events worthy of interest .. I had mentioned the events at Watkins Glen several times .. as soon as I got home, this arrived in my mailbox. Please note, this is a MINI USA sponsored event which generally translates into it being well attended, well organized, lots of corporate 'perks' (free food, door prizes from dealerships) .. it's definitely a "don't miss" .. if you need some other excuses to make a long weekend of it ... Corning Glass Museum 30 minutes away (trust me, 5 out of 5 starts with 3000 reviews or something like that) and it's Finger Lakes wine country. Now let me get my hotel booked before I hit Post on this one (there will be a group caravanning on Friday from Carlisle PA and there is usually a contingent that caravans from Frederick to meet up with the Carlisle group) .. if any of that is of interest, don't post here, this is just an FYI, find Carlisle MINI on Meetup. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1574069059577905/
  22. I think posting updates here is fine, I had just forgotten to turn on Follow Topic. Maybe if the forum could be set up to have the Follow Topic default to Yes if a member has posted a message?
  23. Oooops, ya caught me,. not on social media . But I also hadn't checked "follow topic" on this forum, so if an update was posted about the lunch plan, my bad, I wouldn't get it. It all worked out ...
  24. Ugh - last time I looked the lunch spot was TBD .. just now realized it's BYOPL .. might have to find some place to stop before we get to the park ..
