I am beat.
Last Wed. I set out for the MOTD event in Deals Gap NC. It was a good 9 hour drive from Manassas to the Tail of the Dragon. Since I was going by myself there was no real need to stop aside from emergency bathroom breaks (3 total). I made great time and arrived at around 2:30pm to the event, which was well underway. Over 700 MINIs signed up and just blanketed the area. Driving around with lodge was like I had visited MINItopia, with a MINI in every driveway.
I finally met up with Clint (my buddy from Vegas) after wandering around in a cell dead zone with no internet access either. It was amazing being so disconnected from everything. We were relying on the FRS radios I brought with me. It’s amazing being as internet connected as I usually am to go to nearly black out comms. I am still slowly getting used to being connected again.
Overall I had a blast! Lots of great driving, hanging out with incredible people, enjoying the great outdoors! I had a bunch of stuff done to the POD including, Pulley wheel reduction for the supercharger (I hear that’s a rite of passage at the dragon), new brake handle, stubby antenna, chrome bonnet scoop, and a LightInSight.
I even got to practice some photography tricks. Check out my gallery for all the pics I took. I am really looking forward to attending next year!
