ok, I had to look up and see where Nodine is... We could probably hook up in Rochester or so, we can decide a little closer to the trip time but sounds good to me!! With all the cars in the Minneapolis area, and the dealer in Rochester, I would think we could get a group together. A group from MPLS may zip down 35 easier than going to Rochester, but maybe we could meet up where 14 and 35 intersect or something...

I noticed Amana Colonies is almost straight south of Red Wing. With that in mind, I was thinking of heading down 58 to 52 (Zumbrota) then 52 to Rochester, then 63 south into Iowa.

It would be neat to meet up in Zumbrota, or even neater to meet at the Smart dealer in Rochester. it is just off of 63!!! that would be neat! imagine a pack of smarts invading a MB dealership!!

I'm thinking we could meet (or converge) on the smart center in Rochester! Maybe around 10 and leave by 11. That would get us to Amana around 3 or so... Open to suggestions or comments.,, earlier? later?

Smart dealer is just off 63 south of 52, Amana is pretty much a straight shot down 63 (according to Mapquest)

Feeling kind of lonely in here, I'd like to give the dealership a heads up as to how many cars are stopping by, but if it is only 3 cars, well then I won't worry about it.

Helloooo anybody out there???

Called the dealer and told them we would be stopping by in the morning 10-11 AM... lets get a big turnout!! They sounded excited that we would stop by!!

Had to stop cleaning as it started raining outside. Get it out of the system now, before the weekend.
