The Surf-n-fun-river-run Part 2 (AKA the Royal Wedding Weekend)
Back by popular demand! Since our next 3 day mountain adventure (Mini 53) isn't until April, 2012, we've had many requests to re-live our Surf-n-fun-river-run. Keeping with the CMU formula of the most fun/drives with the cheapest entry fees and accommodations in north America, here we go again! Read all about it HERE!

June 4&5 -  A Lap of Virginia

As indicated on the map, this is a 750 mile,18 hour, two-day drive through the scenic Virginia country side.

Starting out from the Hampton Roads area in the southeastern corner of the state, our route will take us traveling northbound up the middle peninsula, through the Fredericksburg area, and continuing up to Front Royal. From there we will pick up the scenic Skyline Drive and head south, stopping over night at the Peaks of Otter Lodge, which is situated right along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Bedford. On the second day we will continue south and exit the Parkway near Roanoke. From there we will travel back towards the Petersburg area, at which point many of us will split off and travel our separate ways home. We will be rendezvousing at points along the way with various MAM members and friends from the Capital Mini Register from the northern Virginia area. The roads throughout the two days will be comprised mainly of two and four lane secondary and rural roads, and Virginia Scenic Byways only, with the slight exception of a very short stretch of Interstate while in the Hampton Roads area.

For Saturday night we have blocked a small group of rooms at the Peaks of Otter Lodge, at the rate of $129/night for single or double room accommodations. All rooms at the Lodge face a small lake, are non-smoking, have no phones, no TV, and there is no cell or Internet service available. In order to reserve your room please call 800-542-5927 and mention that you are a part of the Mid Atlantic Minis group. For additional Lodge information, visit http://www.peaksofotter.com/  If traditional full service hotel accommodations are desired, you may want to look into other area hotels in the vicinity of Bedford, which is located approximately 10 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

We look forward to having some of you join us for this event, either for the entire drive or for just portions of it.

Here's a map of the route.
