Mini Takes the States

The almost inactive amateur radio blog is going to be hijacked for the next month by my adventures on Mini Takes the States.

If you don’t know by now, my second hobby is Mini Coopers.  Every two years Mini puts on an event called Mini Takes the States.  The last three events have been cross country, two-week jaunts.  Four years ago I did three days, two years ago five days, and this year I’m going the whole way — 14 days.

The event starts next Saturday, July 9 in Atlanta and winds up in Palm Springs, CA, two weeks later. The route map is posted here, and you can always find more information at
