MINI USA today announced the official route for MINI TAKES THE STATES (MTTS) 2018. The legendary rally for MINI owners, which runs from July 14 – 22, will start from two separate locations on opposite sides of the country and meet in the middle for a weekend celebration of everything MINI. The starting cities will be Orlando, Fla., and Portland, Ore. The final destination is Keystone Resort in Keystone, Colo., approximately 75 miles west of downtown Denver. Once arriving at Keystone, MINI owners from both routes will have the weekend to trade stories, share their experiences, show off their MINI, explore the area on curated mountain drives, support our charity partner and enjoy fun activities planned by the MINI USA team.
I guess they want me to join in!
Ten years ago, I traveled to Europe and spent a few days with MINIs and MINI USA in the Netherlands, at the second MINI United. A fun weekend! Here’s a video review of that weekend:
Another Apple Photos Memories creation, revisiting MINIsOnTop 2007:
MINIs from various parts of Florida, including Melbourne and Daytona, met today in Winter Garden before a drive to Yalaha Bakery; we are too busy today to do the drive, but met everyone at the parking garage before they headed out.
We learned today of a MINI drive nearby, so I washed my car and we headed down to Championsgate to meet everyone – and there was a good turnout of 15+ MINIs there!
I took a photo of each MINI individually, just like the old days!
Once everyone had arrived, we set off on a maybe 20 minute drive, over to food trucks in Kissimmee – complete with reserved parking for our group!
Good fun to join some MINIs again! Thanks to Joey for organizing 🙂
I’ve posted a few Apple Memories creations from the new iOS 10 Photos feature; today it created this good set of memories from this date back in 2004, a MINI rally organized by MINI Peabody at their original US Route One location:
