Is there anything more exciting than getting ready for a vacation? All of the excitement of planning and packing and planning some more and then repacking… It’s honestly one of my favorite things! Because we have been experiencing a global pandemic, the biennial MINI Takes The States has been repeatedly postponed, but no longer. In 2022 we are all ready to reunite and rally!
Because I have a lot less vacation time than I used to, I planned my route so that I could travel to Vermont during the long holiday weekend and then work from there until the rally starts. I plotted a route that would allow me to drive through Canada (super scenic and universal health care) and then stay near Burlington. I booked hotel rooms near the morning rally sites for each day of the rest of the drive.
After I secured my lodging, I spent some time packing, then unpacking, then packing again…
Finally I finished up by doing some last minute stickering.
The headlamp ring on my passenger side was damaged so I replaced it with a new one.
I roll out early on Saturday morning. I can’t wait to get started!
