Come celebrate Miata Adventures on these Multi-Club Events.
Mark your calendars, put in for vacation and get
ready for 10 days of driving some of the most
beautiful roads in USA.
Our first trip
2001 The California Oregon “Gold Rush Run” was
quite a success. Due to all the planning involved
we decided to do it every other year.
We will spend the first 4 days driving north along the western side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We will visit 6 National Parks – Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Yosemite, Lassen Volcanic, The Redwoods and Crater Lake.
We will then spend 5 days exploring central Oregon and Northern California, before we have to head home. In Oregon, the Willamette Miata Club, of Eugene, will host us as they share their favorite roads.
Then, our second weekend will be spent with the Redwood Coast Miata Club for their Annual Cool Weekend at the Coast.
Our second trip 2003 The California-Oregon “National Parks Run” was even better. We had lots of other clubs join in (7) and partake on some of our adventure. We had a brand new club the “Willamette Club” joined us with 13 members in the middle of the week, and they showed us some of their best roads. We had dinners and lots of socializing along the way.
Our third trip 2005 The California-Oregon Run “From the Mountains to the Sea” Was even more enjoyable with more time to explore and see the sites. We visited a lot of lighthouses along the way back.
A change of Venue!
Our fourth trip The "2007 National Parks of the South West Tour" Was a special tour because we incorporated the Moab III event and put on a run "Run around the mountain" while there. Our Durango to Silverton train ride was a big hit as we had the Alamosa car to ourselves full of Miataphiles. The fun part was it had started snowing on the way up the mountain while we sat in our parlor car warm and sipping on hot cider and mixed drinks.
Anniversary we went to TEXAS to celebrate the
Miata's birthday celebration. We also helped with
Mazdas' 20th anniversary event the "MX5Miatafest"
and had the SOCALM 20 Year Anniversary party
afterwards. So we waited to do our next event in
2011 - 2 Weeks of Miata driving at a leisurely pace visiting new places and meeting up with other clubs.
Our fifth trip The "Lava and Water Run" Starting in the Sacramento area and heading North we will be hooking up with other Miata Clubs, having people join up with us at various spots on another one of our driving adventures. If you have not taken one of Marna's great runs that take you to unusual places and sights on some of the best Miata roads, well your probably going to miss the last big run. (Of course she said that last year too!) This time the run will be more relaxed, see more sites, and have lots of exploring opportunities while on this trip. Just one of the newest places to visit will be Mt. St Helens. You are invited to join us for any part or all of the run, AAA is handling our Hotel reservations and the application can be found from the front page of Miatafuns site just click on the links under the Lava and Water logo.
