This year’s drive is particularly special on many counts. On top the fact that this was my first time attending Tri5+ and being part of the organising committee, we were celebrating the Mazda Miata’s 30th Year Anniversary so it had to be a memorable one and it definitely was… For me at least.
Entire plan of the week-long trip was like just like any other convoy – drive, eat, sleep with a little bit of activities and sight-seeing here and there and not forgetting, getting to know each other a bit better every day. We were divided into groups with a lead car and sweeper car to ensure the safety of everyone as well as for ease of communication.
So, the trip started off with about 70 over Miatas, although some were not able to stay the full 7-day length of our outing. As the days progressed, the more meals we had together, the more time we got to sit down with each other, the less awkward pauses we had, the more comfortable we got with each other, the more we got to know each other.
