Sauk it 2 Meet

by Mary Lynn Cinealis

   On a wonderful fall morning we gathered in Middleton. The day started out overcast and the majority of drivers decided to drive with tops up. Only 1 or 2 brave souls drove with their tops down. The route that Jim and Karen planned for us meandered thru some great rustic roads that also included some cute little cities like Mt Horeb (which is always a favorite potty stop), Blue Mounds and Mazomanie. Lunch was at the Blue Spoon Cafe in downtown Prairie Du Sac. We had our own room which overlooked the Wisconsin River. We took our time enjoying our food and the conversation with each other. After lunch we did run into a little rain, but it did not dampen our spirits. We continued to enjoy the fall colors and the many animals that we passed along the way. Dinner for us was a favorite spot for the club, Rivers Edge Pub in Lake Delton. When you walk into this place it's like going home since they have welcomed us so many times in the past. We had a few new couples that were introduced to the group and they seemed to enjoy the day of driving and the camaraderie that Badgerland is known for.
  Thanks to Jim and Karen Loeffler for a wonderful last ride of the year.

The Miata Amore 2020 Tuscany Driving Tour

   Join Blue Strada Tours in 2020 for a driving journey into the heart of Italy. Six days driving the rolling back roads of Tuscany and Umbria, with time still to explore the quaint towns of Siena, Orvieto, Montalcino, San Gimignano, Chianti Region, Pienza, Civita di Bagnoregio, and more.
   The Miata Amore Tours include an overnight in the Eternal City of Rome, several nights in the "World Heritage" city of Siena, and 3 nights just a short distance from Orvieto in Collazzone. The scenic roads and rolling hills of Tuscany, Lazio and Umbria are what connect these amazing cities for 8 days. Rest assured, it is an exhilarating driving experience. Enjoying lunches and Italian coffees in small villages along the way will endear you to the rural life and culture that Italy is so famous for.
   Andrea Mancini, an extraordinary Miata enthusiast and collector, welcomes us to Miataland—a classic Italian villa style inn that is home a personal collection of Miatas. Staying at Miataland is enjoyable in itself, but adding guests from around the world where the Miata has other enthusiastic owners makes it even more so.
