FINALLY got to attend an SCMM event! This one right in my backyard too!
The destination? The Indio Tamale Festival.
The Route? There were two meetup points for this run. One for those that came from San Diego or the IE. The other was for those coming from LA and points north. That group got to run the full Palms to pines section of Highway 74. I met with the SD group and only got to drive a short portion of it. That’s ok by me, because most of it looked like this:
Yea, not too shabby.
Yea, 1 Porsche Carrera Turbo. Complete with ceramic brakes, magnesium wheels, 600 (!) HP and weight quite a bit less than a MINI. Dude showed off for us a bit and it looked like he did 0-way faster than the limit in about 100 feet!
I really need to get out and do these more often. I forgot how fun it is to drive with about 40 other MINI owners. Oh yea, didn’t hurt that the high for the day was 72, not a cloud in the sky and only a gentle breeze. Everyone was looking for sunscreen!
