MTTS to Elkhart Lake

I have recieved some information about the planned route on Saturday morning from Lincoln Park Zoo to Elkhart Lake Wisconsin.  It is possible that some details will change, but hopefully this will help those planning on meeting the caravan along the way:

Lincon Park Zoo 10am Departure

Lake Shore Drive North

Sheridan Road North

Dempster West

I94 (Edens) North

Exit at Rt. 176 for a stop at Lambs Farm

I94 North (via Rt. 176 to Waukegan to Rt. 137)

I43 North

Rt. 57 North

Rt. 23 West

Rt. 67 North

County J West

Enter Road America Elkhart Lake at Gate #4

    Thanks for posting, Steve…

    Bummer that they’re not taking Sheridan further North. Just jumping on the Edens / Tri-State isn’t so exciting… 🙁

    Shooting up Sheridan and the Circle Route around the lake most of the way would be a lot more fun…. Alas…

    Guess having more time in Elkhart would be even better though.

    Any idea of an arrival time at Lamb’s Farm ? I’m working that day but might meet up with the group there.

  • My guess would be ~11:30 at the earliest.

    I like the Lambs Farm stop! If I decide not to drive all the way back down to the city in the morning I can just join the group in Libertyville.

    I like the Lambs farm option, the idea of going through the Eden’s construction zone 4 times in 12 hours is not thrilling.

    Does anyone want to meet up for breakfast there first?

  • I had a meeting this morning up off Sheridan Road and I left the meeting, sitting there waiting at the stop light and I see one MINI, then two, then ten and then more!

    Looked like a fantastic turnout for the drive over on Sheridan anyways. I was in my 135, so inconspicuous to the MINI parade.

    If I didn’t have other commitments to get to, I probably would have headed North with you all versus South back downtown.

    Great day for a drive – especially in a MINI/BMW. :o)

    Guess I need to check the site more often – am I still welcome on drives, even though I’m not a MINI owner/driver anymore?

    Of course you’re welcome! who knows, you may get another MINI down the road.

    you’re right… it was a great day for a drive! I had the top-down on the cabrio the whole day!!
