Irvine MINI Of Orange County Is Excited To Confirm, MINI’s Countryman Wanderlust Campaign Announces Winner


The Wanderlust Campaign Winner Received a New MINI Countryman

July 14, 2011– Irvine, Calif.- Irvine MINI is excited to confirm, MINI traveled the world with the MINI Countryman Wanderlust campaign and invited MINI fans to jump onboard and submit ideas for Wanderlust events in hopes of winning a new MINI.

MINI named a winner for the competition and delivered a brand new MINI Countryman to MINI Space member, Unixgal, who’s elaborately documented “Cross-Country MINI Motoring Adventure” has earned herself a brand new MINI Countryman.

“ We are really excited that the MINI Countryman Wanderlust Campaign was a success,” said Darren Richie, General Manager of Irvine MINI. “ MINI lovers came from all over to support MINI and only one was able to return home with her own MINI Countryman,” he said.

Unixgal is actually Emily Stemmerich from San Mateo, California, and her solo motoring adventure combined a simple love of the open road with her MINI, Geocaching, and the desire to get out into the world and make new friends and experiences. Stemmerich herself pretty much sums it up when she said, “Calling this a simple road trip is an understatement.”

During her epic journey from Northern California to North Carolina, Stemmerich showed the rare and inspiring dedication to wanderlust that MINI was looking for in a winner. In less than a month this spring, she traveled a total of 7,819 miles across 28 states. She plowed through thunderstorms in Oklahoma, braved hail and tornadoes in Memphis, Tennessee. She waded street flooding in Arkansas, and in Wyoming, the snow came down so hard that the eastern road into Cody was blocked by an avalanche.
