I hate to admit it, but, it’s good to be back home (and able to write on MY blog without having to wait for someone else to post my stuff. That was the most frustrating thing whilst on the road.)
Okay… just for easy access, I’m posting the links to MY direct posts that were on the MINIUSANews.com site — since many of you wrote to me stating that that site had poorly set up blog navigation…
• AND SO THE JOURNEY BEGINS… (L.A.) • KICKING THINGS OFF FROM LOS ANGELEEEEEZE! (L.A.) • RISE AND SHINE, L.A.!!! WE’RE OFF & RUNNING! (L.A. to Phoenix) • GETTING GOOD SMILEAGE (Phoenix to Vegas) • SWEEPING THE NATION! (Vegas to SLC) • NEEDS MORE SALT! (Bonneville Salt Flats) • THE GRAND TREK TO GRAND JUNCTION! (SLC to GJ) • MOUNTAINS OF MINIS! (Winter Park) • MEETING IN THE MIDDLE! (Denver) • A MINI MARRIAGE! (Denver) • RED ROCKIN’, BLUES TRAVELIN’, FAREWELLIN’ (Denver)
So there they are… my posts from the road when I was driving MINI Takes The States!
Once I decompress, I’ll post more on HERE!!Share on Facebook
I am sitting here in the Loew’s Hotel in Denver. Just got back from a MINI party and have to get up at 5am.
Here are the direct links to the latest blog posts…

Day One is in the books!
I was up till 2am PST uploading photos and video and all that good stuff and writing a blog post for the MiniUsaNews.com site. It should be up in a bit.
We’re heading off to the Santa Anita Racetrack this morning and then hightailing it to Phoenix!
I’m trying to charge all my batteries — my D-80, my cybershot, my flip, my droid, myself.Share on Facebook
I’m sitting here in EWR (that’s frequent flyer speak for Newark Airport) waiting for my plane to depart for LAX (again. FF speak for Los Angeleeeeeze)
I’ve met the bartender at the Guinness Pub (no worries. it was only a Miller Lite… which is like water… which is going right through me. I’ve got an excited bladder today. seriously. It’s saying “I need to be completely empty before we start this trip” — my bladder can be a real dork sometimes.
Yes. bodily function talk. Apparently I’m so excited about the trip that I wound up dry heaving for 5 minutes this morning before I left the house.
Don’t worry, I’m not afraid of flying. I just am freaking out (in a good way) about my fortunate situation.
I’ve gotta go track down a pack of gum to gnaw on while I fly. (It’ll probably be $14.00 here at EWR.)
also, there’s a dude sleeping on the floor here at the gate. everyone’s been walking gingerly around him… I’m kinda in the mood to roll my carry-on over his hip. should i?Share on Facebook
okay. okay. I’m awake. I’m packed. I’m ready (except for the hair and shower thing.)
found this in my Inbox… my horoscope (by the way… June 21st is my birthday – I’m still accepting Birthday wishes until August 20th at 11:59PM PST)
the horoscope – which I found particularly keen today – reads:
Your horoscope for August 7, 2010
Are you starting a new job, erin, or perhaps a new enterprise of your own? If so, this might prove to be a fortunate day for you. If you’re starting a new job, chances are it’s going to be all you hoped and more. If it’s your own new enterprise, that’s probably even better. This is the perfect day to start spreading the word, if you haven’t already. Get going! You won’t want to waste a moment.
pretty dead-on (I hope.) seeing as today I start my blogger job for MINI.
I almost expected it to say “Get Motoring!!”Share on Facebook
i think i might be done packing (maybe. i still have some stuff in the dryer.) took about 45 minutes to find my bathing suit (since I haven’t worn it in forever.) it’s 20 after 2am and I need to get up at 7. my gigglecousin kerry is picking me up at 9am in order to drive me up to Newark to hightail it to LAX. hooray!
(..IF I am not running late and my alarm actually wakes me up on time, I need to slap a little color on my hair.)Share on Facebook
I should probably attempt to find my suitcase since I need to START packing (yeah. I haven’t started yet.)
I still need to hit the foodstore and get kibble for gigglemom.
Think the issues with my site and wordpress have been squared away (touch wood.) and I should be good to go with blogging this trip.
I took today off from work work and am trying to get my keester in gear. The web issues I’ve had bit a huge chunk out of my day/week.
Still debating on whether or not to just bring a carry-on or a suitcase suitcase. (That may depend upon what bag I find first.)
Kinda wish it was a Nudist MINI Takes The States so I didn’t have to pack. (Then again, I don’t want to scare the entire west coast.)Share on Facebook
The Official MINI Takes The States Blog is up and will live here:
