Bright an early in San Francisco more MINI Coopers than I could count showed up for the first leg of MINI Takes The States. It all started with a photo, breakfast, and Tony Hawk jumping over some MINIs as we headed out. I was wonderful, but we ran into one small problem… We got lost. Not really lost because we knew where we were going (Sacramento and then Reno) but we lost the group. One of those things you learn on a trip like this- don’t always follow the MINI in front of you. How could this happen?!? Being somewhat techie I’m always for trying something new, this time MINIUSA tried an app to help push out directions and updates instead of printing out route sheets as they had done in the past… I learned a long time ago that the minute you put your faith in technology, it will fail. A large group followed a some people doing some wine tasting in Napa. Another group tried to follow the original route, and we just ended up driving straight to Sacramento to the dealership for lunch.
After lunch we headed out with the MINIons (Cecil’s group of followers) on our way to Reno… and some bowling.
