MINI Takes the States 2014

A MINI roadtrip without Bessie? Can it be true? Yes. Bessie stayed home while her owner, Caren, went gallivanting off to MINI Takes the States with her boyfriend.

We took the journey in an unlikely pairing of Allen’s MINI Coupe with tear-drop camper in tow. Our maiden roadtrip from Madison, Wisconsin, to Memphis, Tennessee and back via St. Louis and Chicago went wonderfully. From truck stops and camping grounds, the biggest adventure was where we would call home after a long day on the road. Allen and I enjoyed taking in the city lights of Memphis, playing vintage video games, go-karts, pink lemonade and trying to figure out how a baseball game works. But best of all, enjoying it all with so many other fellow MINI friends. View photos…
