Congratulations Sherry and Jim Ray on your new Clubman - already personalized, teched out and on the road! Whahoo!!!!!

I'm very impressed by that announcement the Dealer had next to your Clubman - never seen one of those before...kind of like high heels, eh?

I also think it's great that you had photos of your planned color scheme, as well.

Quick tech question - what kind of Garmin GPS do you have? I think it's a Garmin. I've been thinking of springing for one with some of my "Economic Stimulus Package" moola.

Hope you're keeping track of the comments you get along the drive, Sherry.

I wish you two a good night's sleep and will look forward to reading tomorrow's adventures. Sweet dreams!

Great Start to your Clubman miles. The dealer has obviously made this an "event" for you, which is something we have never felt even after 4 MINI purchases! Enjoy!

Thanks all, I'm up and ready for day 2 on the road!

BB, that is the Garmin Nuvi 650. It's on sale at Costco for $299, a real bargain! Works great and you can download the MINI icon from a guy who posts on NAM. I was a fan of OEM nav, but for $300 vs $2000, it was a no brainer.

Congratulations Sherry and Jim

It's lovely and it's going to look even better when you get the fancy wheels on

Does it have a name yet? Ours still remains nameless

Name is obvious, it was bought to be flat towed behind our RV, the Tardis...

I'm heading out now for the second day of driving. I'll try to post more pictures tonight.

I took plenty of pictures today but can't post them. I'm connect via my cell phone so can't upload pics. I'll post them tomorrow.

Tonight, I'm at a motel on the west side of Denver, should be home in Vegas tomorrow evening.

Piece of cake. Try six days and nights in a U-Haul in January. Drive in it by day, sleep in it by night.

Clubman = Limo.

Up and ready to hit the road.

BB, yes still loving the clubbie. It doesn't handle like the other MINIs I've owned, but the interior is far far more luxurious. And I'm not pushing it, I have a few more miles to go for break in. I'm a little over 900 miles now, should pass break in in Utah, then watch out!

You slept in your U-Haul? Now that's togetherness and determination!

Happy trails today and what's the speed limit in Utah?

BB, he's having sport with you a bit. The U Haul was converted to a toy hauler, it had a sleeper compartment. Still very uncomfortable in January, but we did have a bed and heat.

Utah has a speed limit? Thought it was another Montanabahn.
