Back in 2002 I was visiting a daughter in Germany. A friend of hers had a euro 2001 MINI S. I came home, sold my beloved 4Runner and bought my 1st MINI a 2002 S, and bought its successor in 2004 which I owned until 2013. In 2006 we started TwistyBitz. Our first event was MINIs In The Mountains, Cooper Mountain Co., from there we did A MINI Vacation In Vegas and many others like MINI Takes The States until 2013. In 2013 we took a 3 year vacation from MINIs but In 2022 I came back to a MINI Cooper Countryman S and fell in love all over again!
