Doug Ochwat (Northern New Jersey MBCA Section) is organizing a trip for any members in the Northeast US along with Ohio, Michigan and Indiana who want to take advantage of this special experience. As many of you already know Mercedes-Benz Club of America’s National President, Richard Simons, is putting together a “Historic Route 66” trip from Chicago to Southern California as a part of the 50th Anniversary ending up at the new MB Classic Center. That trip will leave Chicago on Sunday, September 17th and arrive in California September 30th.

For those who either can’t take advantage of the Route 66 adventure or for those who would like to make it a true coast to coast experience Doug Ochwat plans to leave Northern New Jersey on September 12th 2006, following for the most part US 6 arriving in Chicago the afternoon of Friday, September 15th. The Chicagoland Section will be sponsoring a Concourse on Saturday, September 16th followed by a banquet that evening. The idea is to bring together the two sections that represent the beginnings of the MBCA we have today: Northern New Jersey and Chicagoland.

Aside from essentially following the US 6 corridor across Northern Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana there will be get together dinners each evening along the way.

If you are interested in any part of this adventure including just one day, a dinner, or the entire trip from New Jersey to Chicago please contact Doug Ochwat at 908-850-9643 or daocatswamp@yahoo.com.
