    Holy Backyard!

    The penultimate stop...Bethlehem, PA...where I bought my Coupe, Mini of Allentown (sister city)

    about 45 minutes from home
    Of course the other 13 stops are exciting also...just have to figure out how to start on the Left Coast this time...lol

    Hmmmmm......Looks like the Reno leg is doable. I assume you will be able to sign up for a single leg or two?

    I might be doing either Buffalo to Boston or Cleveland to Boston. I have some time to figure it out.

    I can actually visualize latching on at Cleveburg and continuing to Memphis before leaving and returning to Pigcraw via the TOTD. :Thumbsup:

    Looks like a great route. San Francisco to Reno is way doable!

    What a shame the planners didn't get the dates lined up with the CanAm Mini Challenge dates next June at Mid Ohio.

    Hello....... Left Hand, this is Right Hand. Oh, hey... Damn glad ta meet ya!

    So what does one think it would cost to do this...

    Columbus to SF - Three Days - Could do it in 2 but is 2400 miles but would be toast on arrival for days.

    MTTS - 14 Days

    Boston to Columbus - One Day

    So we'd be looking at probably 18 hotel nights.

    40 some meals

    5000 miles of fuel - Rough estimate - @ 22MPG ~230 Gallons

    Assort bric a brak along the way.

    Sadly we're in the same boat. Looks like if you're between NC and Florida you're out of luck.:cryin:

    I will be in Florida on vacation when the MTTS train of MINIs rolls through PA so I will miss it again.

    Oh well, everyone have FUN.
