    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    Yep we used to have a whole bag of assorted change, and the guy riding shotgun was responsible for digging it out on the fly so we could keep the tires rolling :lol: god I hated that! The I-pass is so much easier, and now I know cheaper too!!! :bowdown:
