NutmegCT Posted April 11, 2011 Report Share Posted April 11, 2011 (edited) Good morning all. If things go my way ... I hope to make a coast to coast trip (Connecticut to California) in my 1958 Mercedes-Benz. A "retirement" trip to visit family, friends, and former students. I just learned of this forum, and hope I can get some ideas on planning the trip. So far I've been using the National Geographic "Guide to Scenic Highways and Byways", and Jensen's "Road Trip USA", plus several web sources. The goal is to make the journey that was originally planned by my parents back in the 1970s in their own old Mercedes-Benz: http://nutmegflyer.wordpress.com/ I've been restoring a 1958 Mercedes-Benz over the last year or so. Very similar to the one my parents owned, and that I learned to drive on. Starting and ending in Connecticut, the target areas on the trip are: Annapolis MD, Clarksville TN, Fort Worth TX, Tucson AZ, San Jose CA, Yakima WA, Edmonton AB, Appleton WI, Metamora IL, Athens OH, Allentown PA, Glens Falls NY. And points in between. About 50/50 interstate and "two lane blacktop". Any suggestions on planning the trip, and "what to watch out for", gratefully accepted! Thanks. Tom M.
