I love being able to hang out with our Miata club, they’re a fun bunch of people. I just don’t like it when my own Miata acts up…. Some days she’s good, other days she’s just not so good. So when we had this drive come up, I was a bit hesitant to bring her along… It’s not fun when she just doesn’t want to run quite right.
Thankfully, this bunch is extremely understanding. Coupled with the fact that we had just gotten our S2000 back, it was deemed that the Miata would sit this out and the S2000 joined a nice-sized group of Miatas on a drive to Perryville to get some steak!
Group drives are always fun… Well, unless you get separated or lost or something. But usually they’re lots of fun. Because our S2000’s not exactly quiet, we were voted and willingly drove in the back of the group. The entire drive went along nice and smooth, with the hardest part being the initial leaving from the parking lot and actually parking at the tiny restaurant.
Being at the back also afforded me plenty of great photo opps, so I took the liberty of snapping dozens of pictures to eventually sort through. I like driving, but I like taking pictures… So I like to switch off a lot. It’s hard to do both at the same time…!
While the drive was great, dinner was also very good. We sat with a couple who have been with the club from the very beginning, who were much older than my husband and I are. Despite the age difference, it was great to chat with them and swap stories and all that… When you all have a common interest (an appreciation for cars, especially the Miata) it’s not hard to get along swimmingly.
I always find us being some of the youngest people involved in Miata gatherings… Which is odd, considering just how affordable these awesome little cars are. I’m just glad that I can be another generation that the Miata has touched, and hopefully pass it on to others. My car seems to be a hit with six year old boys anyhow!
Without further ado, the pictures to go along with my story. Plus my commentary.
