Found an Occupation — Spreading the Joy of Ozark Mountain Motoring!


An enthusiastic group of Iowa MINI motorists recently joined our good friends from Nebraska, Colorado, and Missouri at the fourth annual High Plains Motoring Society (HPMS) gathering. This year’s event, “MINIs Occupy Branson”, was hosted in Branson, MO from 10-13 May and included driving routes on some of the best Ozark Mountain twisties in the area.

Highlights included the group caravan south on Thursday, meeting and motoring with new EIMers Jerry S. and Kristen, our adjacent condos at the Wyndham Mountain View (thank you Bill and Alyce S.!), the awesome first evening Balcony Party (thank you Daryl H.!), catching up with dear friends Steve, Peggy, and Michael from Council Bluffs/Omaha, first morning at the Chateau at the Lake, having the MINI5280 Club leadership join us for Friday’s drive (in the picture above), the incredible drive on AR-123, our stop at Scenic Point, lunch at the Ozark Cafe in Jasper, the pontoon boat party out on Table Rock Lake (thank you Captain Cindy D.!), the “underway replenishment” of libation over to the other boat, great southern BBQ, glow-in-the-dark party favors, the group assembly on Saturday and the group photo, Kristen’s “shoulder picture,” more great roads around the Lake, hillbilly souvenirs, zip lines and butterflies, getting rowdy at the Rowdy Beaver, the impromptu Saturday evening farewell social, and even the trip home on Sunday although it was a bit sad for the fun to end!

A sizable collection of fun photos from this event are in our Photo Gallery and are directly accessible using the following link:
