Boston Area Caravan

Quick Links:

We are announcing the return of the Friday gathering at the Target parking lot at 101 Commerce Way in Woburn, MA on June 22nd for those folks coming from eastern MA, eastern CT, and RI. The Boston-area caravan has long been a tradition for many MINIs On Top attendees and offers a chance to socialize and create a large “pod” of MINIs/Minis traveling together to the White Mountains.

Again this year we will leave the Target lot at 12:00 pm and travel to Bedford, NH to meet-up with the Yankee Candle Caravan at the new MINI of Bedford facility.

MINIs/Minis will begin to arrive at 11:30 am for a 12:00 pm departure for MINI of Bedford. Travel time to MoB should be a little over an hour. Please seek out other MINIs (and Minis!) in the Northwest corner of the parking lot.  The caravan will not stop en-route. We should arrive at MoB around 1:00 pm.

UPDATE:  The fine folks at The Lyon-Waugh Group will be handing out goodie bags at MINI of Bedford to those who registered.  So what are you waiting for, register today!

From Bedford, NH, the combined Yankee Candle and Boston-area caravans will depart from MoB about 2:00 pm with an anticipated arrival at the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel around 4:30 pm. While most of the combined caravan will be taking the direct route to Attitash, you are free to devise your own routes from MoB to Attitash and hoodwink other folks into following you!

NOTE: Traditionally, the combined caravan stopped at a rest area in Canterbury, NH nicknamed Area 51.  This year, because of the MINI of Bedford event, we will bypass Area 51.

Registration is closed.

Things to consider:

  • No route maps will be provided on the day of.  Please review or print the Google Map driving directions from Woburn to MINI of Bedford before meeting us at Target.
  • You may want to bring a bag lunch for when we stop in Bedford, NH.  The meeting spot has a few “grab ‘n go” options.
  • Fill up with gas before meeting us at Target.  We will not be stopping en-route.
  • If you have a FRS/GMRS walkie-talkie radio, we will be on channel 7 (sub-channel 0).
