    I think that a WV trip should be the topic of conversation at QSL British Car Night. Come prepared to discuss...

    Hey Crashton....
    Just got back from a road trip with the wife and dog. I followed your route to the "T".:Thumbsup: Didn't tell my wife where we were going, just wanted to get her and the dog acclimated to long trips in preparation for the trip to the MSSD in a couple of weeks (this will be the first for all of us in the MINI). All the while I was planing to hit the "Der Dutchman" restaurant for a late lunch at 2 in the afternoon in Walnut Creek. Yeah, thinking about their endless helping "Family Style" fried chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and chicken gravy. Aw man, they did not disappoint. Had a slice of banana cream pie for dessert (just a piece of heaven on a plate).:eek:

    The MINI got just over 42 miles to the gallon until we hit the rolling hills (an OHIO mini Dragon... Heh Heh Heh). Averaged 37.5 for the whole trip. You really have to watch for all those Amish drivers in the horse carriages. I saw what must have been an Amish SUV carriage (I missed the opportunity of grabbing a pic). This thing was being pulled by a single horse but was like a triple long buggy, fully enclosed with something like 3-4 bench seats, and what look like black canvas sliding side doors (minivan like). First one of those I saw. Must be the latest "Must Have" Amish thing. Hah.... Got to keep up with the Yoders'.:ihih: I'm thinking the name "Yoders" must be something like the "Smiths", saw that name on a lot of Amish places. Those little black Amish buggies were everywhere, you had to be careful driving over some of those hills.:eek6: Those Amish people, especially the young ones, all tended to wave (this was very nice to see). Now if MINI could only somehow tap into the Amish, that would fix the deteriorating problem of MINI drivers that don't wave.:prrr: The problem is going to be an all black canvas covered MINI, probably won't happen.:cryin:

    Anyway, we had a great MINI road trip today.:D

    MM, glad you had a good time. Chuck can put together a MINI run like no other. If the buggies were thick, the "road apples" had to be plentiful as well. Summer tires and road apples don't mix well, and at times I think Blizzacks would be best to get some traction through the debris :D Join us some time when the whole group heads up through Amish country...it's a good time. :smilewinkgrin:

    Glad you guys had a nice day of it! Sounds like you saw the Walnut Creek rental limo/buggy. It is usually sitting just across from the Der Dutchman waiting to take city folks for a ride. With the nice weather today I bet there was a lot of buggy traffic.

    What is MSSD some kind of sport coil?
