While this MINI motorer was not able to participate in the Annual MidCal MINIs Jamestown/Sonora Run on Saturday, April 13, 2013, from the pictures found on Facebook, it looked to be a great event once again. The group met up at the Starbuck’s on Highway 41 and Shaw (318 East Shaw Ave, Fresno CA). Instructions were for arrival no later than 8:15 am and then hit the road at 8:30 am SHARP! Heading up Highway 41, the group made a quick stop in Oakhurst at the Raley’s Parking lot (40041 Highway 49, Oakhurst, CA) to meet up with mountain folks. The approximate arrival time is generally 9:15 am and departure is close to 9:30 am. The enlarged group then headed out on Highway 49 to meet the next contingent at the Mariposa Fair Grounds. There is another short 10 or 15 minute stop for a quick restroom break and then it is off to the Peppery Restaurant for lunch (13494 Mono Way, Sonora, CA). The route this year was the same as the one taken last year. Sonora is approximately 127 miles from Fresno and the run takes about three hours one way.
