Las Vegas to Phoenix for MTTS – The Long Way

I got an email from Agro today, and he is thinking about doing the run to Phoenix on the 8th via the twisty way to Phoenix via Bagdad, Prescott & Jerome. It adds about 80 miles to the direct route.

Here’s the link for the fun route. 401 miles / 8 hours estimated from Fiesta Henderson to Valley Ho via Bagdad, Prescott & Jerome.

Here is the link with just the “12 miles of terror” detour. 317 miles, 6 hours estimated.

If you’d like to hook up with Agro and get more details about this trip, I’ve got his cell and email addy, just let me know.

MINI Takes The States

MTTS starts next week - are you ready?? There are small groups of members attending several of the different stops during this year’s big event. Hopefully you’ll have the time to come along on one of the legs. Here’s a brief overview of the itinerary.

Early Thursday afternoon a small group of us will be headed north towards San Francisco. Friday in San Francisco there’s a MINI Cross scheduled, and later that evening a MINI Countryman Preview Party.

Saturday morning we’ll head southward to Los Angeles. Saturday’s schedule in Los Angeles looks the same as San Francisco, so we might have to find the California clubs to see about some entertainment.

Sunday morning we’ll pack up and head out to Arizona. MINI of Tempe and MINI North Scottsdale (supported by Dynamic MINI Collective) have teamed up to host a Pool party at Hotel Valley Ho. Monday morning it’s back to the MINIs for the fun ride back to Las Vegas.

It turned out that we will be visiting all three properties this week.

Tuesday is our first walk through at Palace Station – meet at the Palace Station Guest Registration area at 7pm

Tomorrow is our second walk through at South Point – meet at the South Point Guest Registration Area tomorrow, Wednesday July 21 at 6pm.
