A long time ago on a far-away MINI forum, great words were written:

I was thinking how fun would it be to do a Mini Trek to Mt. Washington [New Hampshire]. To get a group of Mini's together to drive up to the top of the Mountain …

From that, MINIsOnTop 2003 came to life, and 70 MINIs met & drove up the Mount Washington Auto Road on June 21, 2003:

One year later, MINIsOnTop 2004 brought 160 MINIs together:

Now MINIsOnTop 2005 is expected to see more than 200 MINIs attend, meeting On Saturday June 18 at Loon Mountain,
caravanning along the Kancamagus Highway, BBQ & prizes at the base of Mount Washington, and finally a drive to the top to watch the sunset (weather permitting!)

MINIsOnTop is a meet & greet event; there is no fast driving, very few tight turns but loads of friendly faces; the perfect opportunity to meet people you only know by screen name, and check out their MINIs!

Costs include food and auto road tolls (estimated $40 per person) and the essential MINIsOnTop T-shirt and car decals;
if you are interested, be sure to pre-register before the deadline this weekend!
