Return to Millie's Wrapup

We had over 30 cars brave the slightly chilly early spring tempratures and headed out for the drive. After a bit of a slow start, we got on to some fun back country roads, and re-visited Snake Road, and the “roller coaster” (Alden) road. Millie's did a great job accomodating our larger and later than expected crowd. We even spied a “skunk works” group of Scions doing product testing on Snake road (I could have sworn I heard a supercharger wail comming out of an xB).

I hope everyone had as good a time as I did. Thanks to the people at Patrick MINI for doing the filming. If anyone has photos or albums from the ride, send them along to me, and I will see if I can post a few.

    Yeah, i would like to see that film footage as wel, looked like some interesting shots were taken. I had a great time and see you all next time!

  • Angelo Correa

    I've been looking forward to my first drive with the club and I was not disappointed. It was amazing to see all the MINIs. I noticed we got a lot of thumbs up and honks from other drivers. Thanks to Steve and the others that put this drive together. My family and I had a great time on the drive and enjoyed talking with other MINI enthusiasts. I can't wait for the next event!!

  • Pat

    Big thanks to you Steve for doing a great job leading the pack, and everyone that helped made the drive a blast!
    This was my first event, and it was worth the wait..!
    Thanks again,

    I was the xB bringing up the rear of the scions coming the opposite direction. It was great to see all those minis coming down the opposite way! I didn't get a great look at many of them due to the situation, but I liked the blue one with the offset white stripe. Anyway, perhaps we can meet up with you guys for real sometime 🙂

  • John

    I would also like to thank Steve and everyone involved with the Chicago MINI Motoring Club for organizing the drive! All of us from Patrick MINI had a fantastic time and are looking forward to the next event. : ) Keep up the great work!

  • Nice to see some other small cars enjoying the fine roads of southern Wisconsin!

    Do you guys have an official Scion club in Chicago?

  • Chris

    Great job with the drive Steve! We made Snake Road just fine, like last year – no reason to worry. 🙂
    I sent my pics to Gabe just a minute ago.

    Let's do Millie's again soon rather than another two years.
