Jon and Toby slayed the Dragon

A group of MINI enthusiasts organize an annual event called MINIs on the Dragon, which had been on my bucket list ever since I bought Rocky. The opportunity finally presented itself when I moved to South Carolina in late 2013. I signed up to the event as soon as registration opens.

I picked up Toby at the GSP Airport and headed up the mountain. It was both a relaxing and exciting trip with the many drives on the Dragon. The most memorable drive was the Midnight on the Dragon: it was dark and Rocky was the lead vehicle

The many drives on the Dragon:
