    Had a great time! As many people that were there, still ran into friends made at MOTD this year. Very fun to see so many minis in one place.

    There's James & I in "Field of MINIs." I snagged a copy for personal use if that's alright. :)

    We had so much fun with these MINI folk also...we drove from St. Louis, no issues, and spent Friday night in Mackinaw City, Saturday night in St. Ignace. Brought passports to help us get the "My Midwest MINI has been to Canada" merit badge, and made that 100-mile round trip on Saturday afternoon.

    Made a bunch of new acquaintances; including our entire lunch table on Saturday. Enthusiastic Michigan MINI owners, yet: a) had never heard of MINI Takes the States, b) were not on any forum, and c) had heard of the Mac event at the last minute, through friends. All of them gladly took down website info and so forth.

    So there's room, still, for some publizicing and evangelizing of all this stuff among MINI owners!

    I didn't take too many photos, but have this online album of them (and a couple that I swiped from all the FB postings). I was really thankful that someone had thought to screen-shot the Mac Bridge live webcam during our crossing, that's a fun one to have!

    I had a blast! Have never seen so many MINIs together like this in the USA before, but at 848 they said that was the largest gathering of MINIs in one place in the US since MINI USA opened here 11 years ago! And we did set the Guinness World Record for the largest Car Horn Ensemble when we all played "Smoke on the Water" by Deep Purple!

    Here is a link to my pics on Flickr...
