Jump in your Miata and get ready to "Spot That Thing." In this all-new route, you'll enjoy a fun rallye-type drive. You'll get a set of driving directions and a page of photos that correspond to sights you will see on the drive. You'll need to take note of the mileage when you "Spot That Thing." At the end of the drive, you'll have an opportunity to win a fun prize.
The drive usually takes about two hours, and ends in time for happy hour at the Islander Restaurant and Bar, where we'll reconnect and award the spoils to the winner! No need for speed here; just enjoy the scenery and keep your eyes peeled for the "things" along the route.
This will be mostly an urban drive, so make sure you are ready for a little traffic and most likely, some road construction.
We'll start from the parking lot of Target at Factoria Mall (this is a change from the originally announced starting point, due to the original starting point costing money for parking!)
The Driver's Meeting is at 3 p.m. sharp and we'll leave around 3:15.
Directions to Target at Factoria Mall:
From I-405 North or South, take the Coal Creek Parkway Exit and head toward Newcastle (east of the highway). Just after the exit, turn left at 128th Ave. SE (there's a traffic light). After about 1.2 miles, you should see Wal-Mart on the right and immediately after that, Target. Turn right into the parking lot and look for other Miatas.
There are restrooms and a snack bar in Target right inside the front door if you need munchies or coffee before starting this drive.
