NoDak countdown, T minus...

  1. Bring it. I have a place in town and drive a red Chevy with a chessie in the back when he doesn't jump out. :lol::lol::lol:


    Seriously, as go through Benton Harbor start listening to the radio for traffic times and make a game time decision. Gary exit (Skyway) at 8pm CST should be OK, puts you downtown in another 45 min. Friday nights ALWAYS suck on any road near Chicago. Good luck :)

  2. i'm probably the only one on here that will get that...haha.
     

  3. Damn....busted. I thought you left already. :chillin:
     
  4. and me. ;)

    The real question is your Chessie going to bite my tires? :evilsmile
     
  5. here's a snapshot of last april's trip. passing through this route at the times posted is a piece of cake and i'm guessing a lot less $ if you stop to pay.

  6. Thanks for that info Dave. Do you know if you're $ in the accout ever expires as I try to only drive through Chicago twice a year....no Nodak and back.
     
  7. Interesting record Dave. Good to know. And those are nearly the times we will be heading through on the way out...8:30 ish in Gary. Looks like clear sailing that route. Good to know.
     
  8. nope it never expires.....since you'll be goin out there every year (its not hard to tell your hooked:evil:), you might as well get one. round trip it'll save you about $25.

    looks like i'm gonna miss you again...hopefully we'll be able to get a hunt or two in next year.
