WRAPUP:? Another great roadtrip!!? We had 20 MINIs in attendance on a chilly but nice day.? After a late start we headed out to Monroe for lunch.? Their Chili festival was in full force in the town square.? Then we took off on the long?twisty route to New Glarus.? We saw the amazing fall colors, some wild life, animal sculptures, and lots of fun?roads.? We made it to?the New Glarus Brewery in time for a quick tour and?a beer stock-up for those that had extra room in their?trunks.? Huge thanks to Paul and Barbara for all the route planning, and leading and pacing the group!!
