Road Warrior Rock Run 11/20

Wrapup: Fantastic fall weather made for a great drive!
We had over 30 MINIs participating in our annual end of season drive out to Starved Rock State park.
Bill Jacobs MINI hosted the starting location and provided little goody bags to get the morning started. We had a fun drive with a few detours due to road closures and arrived to a not-too-crowded park with time to eat and do some hiking around.
Huge thanks to Bill Jacobs MINI for hosting the start and to Miraslav K. for helping out with the detour rerouting in the middle of the drive!
