Well spring is almost here...almost hit 20C last weekend.

I'd like to do a head count of members in Ontario and western Quebec (northern NY State, Ohio, Michigan?) who might like to get together now and then, help one another with hands on issues etc.

If you will:

Type of SLK (yr/eng/trans/options)

Location

Name & email & cell (whatever you're comfortable with)

whether you want your info shared (I'll put together a bit of a spreadsheet)

comments/ideas

You can post here, or send the info via pm or email ([email protected])

Thanks and have a great season! :grin:

Must be a slow driver lol!! made TBay from Pickering in 14 hours with a stop in Spanish and SSM, Hwy 17 on the way up Hwy 11 on the way back. Nice views of Lake Superior shoreline. I only drove up there because I wanted to see the wild life....apart from the arse end of a moose never saw a darn thing..not even road kill!! Amazing they build such a great highway and you don't see anyone for miles, yet the 401 is a parking lot...anyway I am sure you will have a road trip or two lined up and I am sure we can all meet up sometime this year.

Happy motoring.

Well there appears to be 3 or 4 of us die hard's. I am free most weekends so its a case of organization and timing of your flight times...let me know via email or PM. I think most of the smaller vineyards are starting to open now. I was in NOTL on the weekend..packed as usual but 'sun up top down' all day..:grin:

Just saw this thread, please count me in.:
Car details - 2009 171/350 6-speed stick
Location - Scarborough (east end of Toronto)
email - [email protected] - share
We bought the SLK as our retirement car, and have some big trips planned. Just returned from touring a few Niagara wineries this past long weekend. We have found Prince Edward County is also great for wineries and good food.

Just wondering, does anybody here belong to the Mercedes Benz Club of Canada? My wife and I were thinking of joining them for a winery trip coming up in a couple of weeks.

Thanks.

Tim

I am in Pickering so not a stones throw from your place. May be we can meet up sometime? seems our ranks and interest is growing for the Ontario chapter which is great. Our 'Flyboy' will like that. I too like to day trip both Niagara and PEC. I find wineries in Niagara to commercialized against those in PEC, which is my preferred destination. Home grown cooking, a nice glass of wine (not that I am a fan on Ontario wines) and a nice drive back following the Lake Route via Brighton, Colborne, Cobourg, Port Hope, Newcastle then hit the 401 for the sprint home..

Safe driving

Well looks like the numbers are slowly creeping up..it's about time I gave the latest toy a road trip. Now the footy season is done I am free most weekends if anyone has a date in mind for us all meeting up....I think John said he might be heading to Niagara in a couple of weeks.

Welcome Jim...

I believe there is at least one other member in the Kitchener area, and if you scroll up, Gary is up in Bayfield (nice area to drive around - go to Goderich! There's a new restaurant - the old train station - that's open on the beach). Several members in the Toronto area, once (again, scroll up) from Chatham and one sleeping Italian in Ancaster!

We hope to make one more run down to the Niagara Wineries in Oct...maybe we can get a larger turn out (than the four that enjoyed Prince Edward County). Cath and I are also tentatively planning a run back up to St Sauveur when the leaves are changing.

Cheers, JJ
