  1. Thank you, DCMM Dragon veterans for showing this noob the ropes, and being kindred spirits :top:
  2. We should be able to make it in on time, but just so there's no rush or confusion, can someone from DCMM who's there early pick up mine and Steve's (so far) registration? We plan to do The Hub for dinner and get it by then. Thanks!
  3. In case anyone else wishes to join Bender and me, we are meeting up at the Manassas Virginia Welcome Center rest area on I-66 Westbound, between exits 52 and 47. I'm not posting this as an event just so we can be wheels up at 7:30am Wednesday, whether you're there or not. I printed out a few extra copies of our route. Motor on :motor:
  4. On my way to M&G on VA-267 W, caught up to a red Cooper S Cabrio with black sport stripes, and tags IWANDR. The woman driving and I enthusiastically waved to each other as we maneuvered through traffic and exchanging leads. Was thinking she was headed to Sterling, but we separated at VA-28 and bid adieu :itsme: Was fun
  5. Wow, quite a bit of experience. Not sure why I once felt discouraged about having room to carry a spare, maybe I didn't see the pictures at DetroitTuned of the tire sitting between front and rear passenger seats. But the Roadster has as much room behind its front passenger seat as well. My extended warranty provides roadside assistance, so I should be covered but, at worst, I've had the tire-repair kit. I'll hope the odds just never get to that. But thanks for the thoughts!
  6. Thanks, Laura! Do you mean this one? Virginia Welcome Center
  7. Definitely :top: That route didn't show up, but I punched it in and it's just about the same amount of time and distance. Not very familiar, so a good rendezvous is up to you. Possibly a highway rest area?
  8. I'm no expert, but your car is definitely not DS due to the lowering springs. I dealt with that criteria for a previous car myself.

  10. THANKS! Finally (over a year later ) got this, in time for the Dragon
  11. Awesome, Steve! Well, I hope to get to Fontana Village by 5pm, in time to meet for the DCMM Hub Wednesday Dinner. Given that Google traffic at this time on a Wednesday shows about 8.5 hours from Passport MINI of Alexandria, and tacking on an hour for maybe quick grub, pitstops and/or margin of error, leaving at 7:30am looks like a feasible time. I'm assuming MINI Alexandria would be a good gathering point, especially if others join us. We can arrange with DCMM cronies to pick up our registrations ahead of time. Any other input is welcome, like even just going straight to The Hub and saving us about a half hour or playing it by ear, so to speak, and deciding over radios last minute.
  12. I'm flexible with time Wednesday. I'll be starting from DC and would detour to greater NOVA to start with at least one comrade. Interest?
  13. Craig and I have 2 tables outside for 8 people
  14. We had a blast, thanks! :top:
