Cool Road Trip 2nd week of spring?

Anyone interested in a 2 day road trip throughout Illinois?

I would like to see if anyone would be interested in a road trip in the 2nd week of the spring, We could get together and plan some nice places to pass thru.

Please post if interested and make suggestions and I will organize the event.

Thank's

Pencil me in. I little far for a day trip from Tulsa but I love the river road between Kansas City and St. Louis, and the continuation of the same to Cairo. Probably hook up with you at Arch? I never miss a chance to run the twistees in central Misou.

It's definitely a Great drive, 550 miles is the total in Illinois area, Meeting up in Cairo and going all the way up would be priceless!!!!!

Good idea, Diokaef, but an issue might be that for those of us in or around the city (i.e Chicago), it's a good haul just to get to the closest geographic point on that itinerary (Fulton; 2-2.5+ hours depending on traffic exiting the city) much less make the entire run and get back in 2 days. I'm assuming we'd stop off at some spots along the way.

Plenty of time to figure things out, though. Maybe even just a meet up in Galena and let people plan their own caravans to get there? Galena would also be close enough to get some of the WI/MN peeps out there and maybe even post up to BMW groups like Badger Bimmers or something.

We can also have some coming from north and met in the middle and some from south, so two caravans.

Something like half start in Cairo and go north and half start in East dubuque and we all meat at Quincy. just a thought.

Your Idea also is valid tho.

seems like it would be easier to start in the city and drive north so we can hit Sheridan road and stuff like that, then work our way up to snake road

How about a meet in Lake Geneva, WI on a Sunday? The trip from us Chicago guys is not that far and we can get some people from Iowa and Wisconsin. We could meet up and do lunch or something.
