DMC: Coffee to Coolige Rally

Because every rally needs a clever title


Something that I haven’t done in a very long time is drive with a bunch of other MINIs from point A to point B. Something that I rectified today with a short run with the Dynamic MINI Collective, the MINI Club here in Arizona. Both Stella and I went and we had a great time!

First up with the off. Something else that I’ve been doing is hanging out with some of the club members on Friday Mornings at a coffee shop called Dutch Bros. That was also the location of today’s starting point.

Good morning.

Then, at 8:00 am sharp we headed south to Coolige. Luckily we were graced with green lights most of the way and only had to stop once to let everyone catch up. About an hour later, we pulled up to the airport.

Once a month they host a fly-in. Some planes fly-in, people get an awesome Lion’s Club breakfast, and they fly, um, out. It was pretty neat to see the older planes, especially the 4 that flew in in formation right over the tarmac. I had a mouth full of bacon, otherwise I would have gotten some video or photos or something. It was pretty rad.

A great time was had by all as usually happens when a bunch of MINI owners get together in one place. Full photos shoot can be found over Flickr. I also just got a sneak peak of Stella’s photos and they are pretty amazing! I’ll be sure to give y’all a heads up when they are available.
