Stand by for details to follow about VMC's Fall Escape II...an end of season weekend drive on southern B.C. roads. Dates October 1 & 2, 2016.

Generally, an earlyish Saturday morning start, a drive into the lower interior, an overnight Saturday at an interior location, and Sunday on the road again to 'home'.

Entrants will be responsible for booking their own overnight accommodation...details on where to do so will be provided, and meals, coffee/tea/snack breaks, all fuel etc.

7 Classic Minis & 3 Modern MINIs took part in the Fall Escape II Saturday/Sunday, October 1/2.

Saturday - route Mission to Boston Bar & coffee to Spences Bridge to Merritt & Lunch to Kamloops to Falkland & Coffee to Lake Country via Old Kamloops Road!

BBQ in Lake Country Saturday night with outdoor firepit hosted by Member Ron & Janet Lockwood.

Sunday - route Lake Country to Peachland - 2 stops to see Mini bits and a VMC founding member - to Penticton to Keremeos to Princeton to Manning Park Resort for dinner (some)...others went on home, one Classic Mini just missing a Black Bear that dashed across the highway.

Only one issue on day one with faulty connector at the alternator on a Classic Mini sorted at Boston Bar. Otherwise all good!

Early concern about possible snow on the Hope Princeton did NOT materialize. Driving conditions excellent.
