Getting Ready to Reunite and Rally

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.

Used my hotel points to stay as close to the morning rally sites as possible

After I secured my lodging, I spent some time packing, then unpacking, then packing again…

There isn’t much room in the boot, so most of this will have to ride in the backseat.

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.

First step was removing the damaged ring. Then I popped on the new one. Piece of cake!

I roll out early on Saturday morning. I can’t wait to get started!
