Hi Mathew! I am Ecuadorian too and live in Florida for many years. I've always dreamed of driving (instead of flying) back home one day.
I am glad to know that I am not the only one with the crazy idea!! Please let me know how can I help you guys. The doors to my home in Florida are open to you if you decide to stop on your way south.
When do you plan to start the trip?
thanks for your message.
What's your name?
It is so nice for us to realize that we are not the only ones having this dream!
I have to say the hardest plan of this adventure, is actually finding the time off to do it! That is why we are looking for sponsors to help us backing up our plan.
We really appreciate your words of encouragement and if you have any ideas about possible sponsors, please let us know.
In the meantime there is a very easy way you can help us: if you have Facebook, please send a friend request to "mercedes touring". The more friends we get, the more chances to get sponsors!
You can also help us by spreading the word and suggestion your friends or other mercedes-benz fans to become friends in facebook or follow us on twitter
we keep updating info and uploading pics of the car and the small road-trip teasers and we will have complete chronicles as soon as we start our adventure!
I see you have a couple of MB in Ecuador too, nice! Maybe we will be able to meet if not in Florida, in Ecuador once we reach our goal!
Take care and thanks for your help!
