Default Drivin to Indiana

Driving down to Indiana Friday night. Getting there around 9-10 depending on how I drive

Just need to know a few things from some locals in the chicagoland/nw IN area... do any parts of I-94 and I-65 have any stretches that are heavily speed trapped...and also...any stretches known for heavy deer? It won't be dark until about southern wisconsin/chicagoland, so this is the only area I'm really concerned about.

Also any other things I might want to know about it...since I've never been down there before.

Also keep a look out for a green bonne on the side of the road! Shes runnin perfectly and expect nothing to go wrong, but hey, always lookin for help.

Wish I was leaving a bit earlier....might be able to stop and meet a few people, but kinda late, and I'll probably be on a tight schedule both ways but hey, might be able to work out a quick hello goodbye

When u get in Illinois.

Take the south belot exit,take a right off the exit. Take a right at the papa johns, left at the 1st light, then a left at the road ranger, and a right at the trailer park (2nd entrance) and go straight. U can't miss my car.

John, 94 and 65 both have construction going on so drive the limit seriously. State cops on I-65 were nasty today. Tolls on 94 through IL are averaging about $.80-$1.00 so have tons of change. And I-65 south of Rt-30 watch for them deer! They are bad all the way down to lafeyette just about. But once past Rt-30 it'* alot of open road, the speed limit is 70mph so DO NOT go over 83mph. You will get stopped for sure. Them cops are sneaky bastards!!

Thank you leslie! And hah, Lafayette is exactly where I'm going So its Deer Sailing ahead..I mean umm..clear...sailing...

Ok, I'll be sure to bring singles and change.

Jake, I am gonna be in sort of a rush heading down being that I'm gonna be getting there at about 11 PM EST as it is.

On the way back tho (sunday evening), I will be coming through at about 8ish. So if anyone wants to meet up somewhere for a bite, that'd be cool. I'm thinkin about stoppin by to see John, Jake, Alex and some others, just gotta see if John (DS) is gonna be around.

Shoot, just noticed....Jake..you're over on 39/90, I'm coming down on the east side right into the north suburbs. Feel like drivin over?
