I plan to attend. This is the weekend before EOM and I will combine the two rallies into a nice long ride.

I-80 or over the top?

I'm sure Greg will avoid I-80 like the plague and hit SE Ohio first before hitting southern Indiana, before battling his way north though all the corn. Atta' boy Greg!:clapping:

Should we tell Greg about IL 26 or IL 71 by Straved Rock State Park or just keep quiet?

Stay north & cross through Michigan & take one of the ferry's across Lake Michigan, either at Ludington or Manitowoc or the high speed ferry out of Muskegon. If you have more time maybe head north through the UP. :)

I don't know how I missed all this good advice from February, but I just saw it today. I will definitely go north through Michigan to the UP and across on my way out. I do not like Chicago traffic. My brother lives in Kalamazoo and I am retired as of 3/28 this year so I'll probably head out early and spend some time with him on the way. I have not looked at a route to go south to EOM from Wisconsin yet.

Absolutely! And the section from New York City through NJ and PA is absolutely terrible. There is a nice twisty section in the eastern end of PA, but the rest is pretty boring and there are so many trucks on I80 that you have to spend your time dodging them rather than enjoying the road and scenery. When I need to use the interstate to go west I much prefer to take NY17/I86 across.

I may finally make one of these again...add me to the "Attending" list Rick.

Time for a little letter road road trip.

"D*#@, what a trip!"

13-15 is the official dates. People start showing up on Thur, Friday is the Rally Rallye or what ever you want, Sat. is more riding and the banquet, Sunday people head for home.
