Talking New member from the Boston area!

I have been an active member in the MINI community for a few years now and I am just NOW stumbling upon this site. I don't know how I never found it before but I guess it's better late than never!

Anyways, I filled out my "Garage" already with the complete history of my MINI (found here)

I also found MINIs of Boston last year, and we are almost 100 members strong (well, facebook members that is, lol). I created it to try and get some local events and meets going and to have a place for all of our members to share their ideas and post about their MINIs. It's a public site, and you don't have to be a member of facebook to view the page. You only have to be a facebook member to post. I know there are some people out there who don't have or want a facebook. I just know a majority of people have one, and if makes seeing the local scene easier.

I attended MINIs on the Dragon last year and will be returning again this year along with the 700+ other MINIs! To view my pictures from last year, follow this link, to see my MINI driving the dragon, follow this link, and to see my video of me driving the Dragon, follow this link.

Anyways, I tried to hop on the forums every now and then to see whats going on, or help a fellow MINI owner out, or to try and get some answers about an issue I have. I hope to accomplish that with this site as well.

Now on to the good stuff! My MINI!

Thanks! And thanks for the "like" on facebook! I want to get some drives going out in Western MA, any good ideas? I did the Quabbin Reservoir last year with Clark University Motoring and some MINIs of Boston members, and that was pretty fun. I'll be looking into doing that again and possibly other locations in the area so if you know of a good scenic drive, let me know!

Wow, this must be the week for NE based people to have found M|U! I also just joined, and posted my intro yesterday.

I've liked the MINIs of Boston page, and if you wind up doing anything in Western Mass, I'd be interested (I'm in the Hartford area). Then again, I haven't been to Beantown in a while....
