2014 Mini Cooper: Road Trip Pictures

March 30, 2015

2014 Mini Cooper

On a whim I drove our 2014 Mini Cooper 600 miles for a loaf of bread and beef jerky. Take the jump for photos and a recap of the trip...

Our annual goal for long-term cars is 20,000 miles. The Mini was behind schedule and I was going to do something about it. I searched locations about 300 miles away, figuring that was the longest I could comfortably last for a one-day drive. The distance to Bishop, CA was just about right. It's home to Erick Schat's Bakkery and Mahogany Smoked Meats, two must-stops on the road to Mammoth Lakes. I made them my destination and set off.

Word of my trip got out. By the time I arrived my grocery list expanded considerably. I ultimately left town with two pounds of beef, buffalo, elk and boar jerky in addition to 8 loaves of bread, pastries and fresh turkey sandwiches. It was overkill for sure, but it was fun. And there was no need to stop for lunch on the way home.

I'll post another blog with driving impressions. For now, a visual tour:
