We are planning to kick off our MTTS Caravans from our Sponsors Flow MINI Raleigh, and Flow MINI Winston-Salem! THMMC is excited to partner with HENDRICK MINI in the Charlotte Area! We recognize that Hendrick has a small lot, how ever plan B for a meeting location is already in place. We will finalize all meeting points and departure times a couple weeks prior to the event.

Any Tar Heel MINI's going to CA? And if so, heard of any MINI transport options for the return? (Still working on my plans)

Yes; MD and I are going all the way to CA but then are turning north to Seattle where we will be arranging for a truck to ship Calico Jack back. You're going all the way? YAY!!!!

NOTE: we have changed the Cracker Barrel stop to the one by the outlet mall in Gafney, SC. For out of towers joining us, this is near the Giant Peach.

if you do not use Facebook, please post here if you plan to leave with us from one of the three dealerships. If you use Facebook, there's a poll on the event discussion. Please do not post in both places. :)

We're in the home stretch and need to have some numbers to pass along to our dealership sponsors and partners.

If you are planning to start MTTS in one of our caravans from Flow MINI in Winston Salem, Flow MINI in Raleigh, or Hendrick MINI in Charlotte, please let us know by posting here or on our FB page poll ( or FB messenger). Please do not reply in both places. :)

head count us particularly important for those leaving from Raleigh, and MINI count for those leaving from Charlotte.

caravan route from Raleigh:
Capital Blvd - 540 - 40 - 85. Rest stop is planned at the midway point (to Cracker Barrel) at the rest stop on I85 near exit 102 in Thomasville. We'll be running on channel 20/20.

We're going to hit traffic out of Raleigh. (Siiiiiiiigh)

After lunch it's 85 into ATL.
