WRAPUP: Great weather and a great drive!! We had a large turnout of almost 30 MINIs of all colors and styles.. We had quite a few first timers who I suspect will be back for more drives. We took a fun and twisty route up around Lake Geneva and back. Huge thanks to Chris for all the route planning and and for taking the lead driving position on the route!!
Send links to photos or video to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add it here.

This is right in our neck of the woods! We live within minutes of Donleys :). Donley’s has great food and a huge dining room…so if you get a huge group, you could always end where you started. Woodstock has a great place ~Nikos Red Mill Tavern~ has great food as well!!! A bit smaller…but a great place to eat! Indoor and outdoor seating 🙂
Lori, that sounds awesome! Do you think I can get my mini-horse-in-my-MINI picture on Sunday? =)
Oh…lol…and Dave and I are IN 🙂
