    It was great. 555 is awesome and I will be happy to get back on it, but I was glad to take 60 back to Zanesville with my little pack. It was relaxing. And BOTH of my wrists are a little sore today!!

    Thanks for a great route, Chuck. The scenery was pretty too. Got to see part of it both ways looking for wayward SLVRBKS! Next time, I leave Mark where ever he was last spotted! :D

    Thanks!!!

    Carol I want to thank you & Holly for heading a group of MINIs into the wilds of SE Ohio. I think splitting into 2 groups worked well. And a special :goaljnky to you for caring enough for us silverbacks to go looking for Mark aka: the wayward one. :smilewinkgrin:

    I thought I saw the girl with the leather pants and whip in the MINI ad standing in the driveway of one of the Amish houses and I went back to get her.

    Rigid, AutoX w/ Miata's? Do they have a group in Central Ohio?

    I agree track is priceless for learning how to safely drive your car at higher speeds and harder turns, but I am also going to note that if you hit some debris on the track it would have the same effect as gravel on the road.

    No not the same effect at all. If you go off on track there is runoff room & you can safely get back on the island. If there is debris they will show you the flag for it & you can react accordingly. Another huge plus for tracks is the medical help that's there ready to render aide at a moments notice.

    Hope I'm allowed to post that here. :lol::lol::lol:

    I mean if you hit gravel you hit gravel. A track and a road treat drebris the same no? I do like the run off and medical on call though. Maybe I will add a medical pack to my trunk.

    The Miata club uses non-Miatas to subsidize part of the costs to do an AutoX event. Next year they are going to have some events at OSU and some at Historical Society. This year they did a driver's school that was a huge success I bet they will do one again next year. The other plus is their club has a lot of really good drivers who like to help people learn. If they see you doing something wrong they will tell you and they are always willing to let you ride along to watch them and they will ride with you to help as well. I know the Porsche guys are always willing to have non members at their events, but I have never been out with them so I can't give them any kind of endorsement.

    Nick, it's not that you hit the gravel or debris, it's how you react when it happens. That and other techniques is what you will learn.

    This is understandable. I can see if I would of reacted to the slide better, I could have a better outcome. Accidents are accidents... The good part is I learned my lesson. :lol:

    Now can we not bring up the spin anymore... My pride feels little. :cryin::lol:

    Thanks for a great route and a great run. Amanda and I had an excellent day, and had an opportunity to spend some time in Marietta before heading back home. We also stopped off at some of the historic lock sites on the way back. Interesting stuff for those who find such stuff interesting. Thank you all for a fun and safe day.
