    To keep up with any changes, not that there are likely to be any, check out the Facebook event.

    But this is the jist of it.


    We are meeting at the Bass Pro Shops in Gurnee Mills.

    6112 W. Grand Avenue
    Gurnee, IL 60031

    We have a mandatory meeting at 1900 hours Eastern/1800 hours Central at the Casino. Google maps says it's about 4.5 hours of driving for 270 miles. Round to 5 hours with a stop. I have the depart time at 1200 hours eastern/1100 hours central.

    Assume you'll eat lunch prior to leaving since we're departing at 11:00 am Central, or grab something when we stop for the potty/fuel brake. There is a McDonald's, Five Guys, Steak and Shake and a few others right near Bass Pro. Please fill your gas tanks prior to arriving at the Convoy. Some SCABS that get really crappy mileage will need to get gas when along the way. We'll plan one pit stop when bladders are full and tanks are empty. This will be a chance to get a late lunch.

    This will put us in at the Island Resort at 5pm Eastern and will give us all 2 hours to check in and grab dinner at the Resort.



    Any questions, shoot me a PM.

    I'm picking Chris Stewart up at O'Hare around 11:25am. Any chance we will make it to you by the time you leave?

    Not likely as we're leaving at 11, but you won't be too far behind. Does his flight get in at 11:25, or is that when you think you'll be actually getting him into the truck?


    We'll be on GLRE Channel 1, unless we pick up bad interference, at which point we'll just move to 2 and then 3. Did I email you my cell number yet? If not, I can and you can just text/call me as needed.

    I'll be there unless I am already up in Wisconsin for some reason.
