    We are coming in Tuesday night and will leave after checking out on Friday. This IS my last hurrah this year. I know, i say that every year, but, all 3 MINIs are getting harder and harder to maintain, and especially whichever one I will bring to the Dragon this year. The last 2 years it has been the R50 and this year it will be my R53. the other R53 is my wife's and she won't let me drive it south of Dayton.

    I will be leaving Cincinnati, Oh on Tuesday, 4/30 to drive down to the Dragon. I will be traveling down I 75 and then down State Hwys., and over the Dragon, to get to Fontana. My departure times are open, but it is a 5.5 hr. drive and I would like to reach Fontana at about 4:30/5:00. Does anyone want to caravan down?

    Sounds like a plan. I'll have a big thermos of coffee and donuts. Cream or sugar?

    Now, THAT'S funny! I have a MINI Sweatshirt based on the "Cars and Coffee" theme with MINIs in place of "Cars". I'll wear that as we head out , so people can see how weird we are!

    Off the subject for a bit.

    Dave, is the Modfather still around? Will he be lurking at MOTD this year? Has he brought the Rat from Denver?

    Yes, Dick will make it over to MOTD. Rat is still at his parents garage in Denver. His new “to him” Jeep rolled down his driveway yesterday into a tree. Looks fixable.

    Whew! I was thinking one of those storms from the Winter and so far this Spring may have gotten him, as they have had some rough weather lately.
