MITO is a great event for two reasons. 1st is the People. Like all MINI events MINI owners are fun and easy people to hang out with. I've always left with new friends and look forward to doing the same this year. This event remains small enough that you can almost meet everyone giving it the feeling of a local gathering. 2nd reason are the roads around NW AR and SW MO. While there is no Dragon there are hundreds of miles of fun roads with very little traffic. You can burn a tank of gas a day and never see the same road twice. Plus there are hotels for any budget in Eureka Springs AR. I hope to see you at MITO and help you discover some of the best roads in the middle states if not the lower 48.
