Sneaking ever closer to the magical 300K mark. I have some plans to make it a little more fun after MTTS, so watch for that. Since my battery corrosion issue and this:
Everything has been as expected. Oh, that? I’m guessing it was either a defective plug or an issue with the sleeve that was installed in that cylinder. Plugs are (relatively) new and all of the others check out. The cylinder has been re-sleeved and the plug was replaced. Obviously. Now I’m down to only 2 major mechanical issues to sort; power steering hoses and strut tower mount. These will have to wait a little bit longer since I’m still recovering from the transmission swap. Once complete, Jerry says just a few minor suspension things to knock out. So far, so good.
Since you all already play the home game, you know that Todd and I will be going the whole way. You’ll be able to keep up with everything we do over at whiteroofradio.com and all of our associated Social Media sites. Since 2006, we have covered in some way, shape or form, MINI Takes the States. I expect this year to be better than ever since we have added a few volunteers to the mix to help out. Besides that, a few other changes will help us really knock it out of the park (my words).
Personally, I’m very excited for it. The route looks fantastic! I’ll be able to spend some quality time with an F56 S and see all of you along the way! Hearing over 2,000 have actually registered and there are more than 300 that are going all that way! That it really awesome!
Also really awesome we will be hosting the morning meeting (for lack of a better word). Todd and I getting to talk to large groups of people are the kind of thing we live for. It’s exciting and I personally can’t wait!
If you are going to be on any of the legs, make it a point to find me. It’s been a while and I would like to say hi.
