Issaquah to PSMINI Spring Clean Drive

Feedback: Page 1

When: May 26th, Drivers Meeting at 7:50AM and motoring at 8:00AM

Start: Squak Valley Park
End: Griot's Garage 3333 South 38th Street Tacoma, WA 98409

Hello,
I'm organizing a drive from Issaquah, winding through some backroads of Covington/Black Diamond, and over to Griot's for the Spring Clean event. The route is about 1 hour 45 minutes. Just a quick drive this time but a good wake-up before the Spring Clean. The route eventually has us on 18 to get around the congestion at the Super Mall but then drops back into Tacoma. I'm finishing up the route this weekend and will have more details when that is completed.

What to bring:
- FRS Radios
- Stop in Issaquah for coffee, there is nothing at the starting point.
- PB4UGo! There are restrooms at the park but no guarantee they will be open that early.

RSVP below and we'll look for you before heading out. Otherwise, just show-up before 7:50AM.

Hi all, please RSVP. We've got two routes we can use. One is slightly more interesting than the other but one is also a bit trickier to get everyone through if the group is large. Depending on how many MINIs RSVP will determine the route we take.

Thanks

Let's do the more interesting route! I'm assuming "interesting" means corners and elevation changes?
 
If 1,000+ VW's can do Highway 2 every year ....... amiright?

OK, I count ~6 plus me for the drive. Sorry I've not been updating the first post with RSVP info but I had to go on a business trip this week and it fouled up my ability to update this thread.

I did get route sheets done and I'll print enough for everyone. Remember, drivers meeting is at 7:50AM so arrive just ahead of that. Please bring a radio... this route might get interesting....

see everyone tomorrow! We should have good weather for the drive.

Thank you to all the 8 or so MINIs (too tired to remember exact numbers) that made it out to the drive this morning. We had a few drizzles of rain and mostly wet roads but that didn't stop us from making the most of it.

Anyone have pictures? Please post them here.

What did you think of the route? A couple interesting bits I threw in there but we stayed together and you all looked great in the rearview!

Thanks again... now onto the next one...
