A nice calm 3 day adventure...

Nice calm ride out US12 to east chicago then hit 94 to go around chicago.

Camp Friday night at Illinois Beach State Park (http://www.illinois.com/details/parks.php?id=75). Caveman and I stayed here once and it was a great camp ground. It will only take 7 hours to get here so no rush...

Saturday... a 1 hour ride to Milwaukee to the HD museum. See that, hit up the gift shop, then roll into Milwaukee for a night out on the town. Get some good grub & drinks, stay at a nice hotel.

Sunday, hammer back via highway... only 6.5 hours via all highway. Be back nice and early.

Here's the Google Map (http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=48183&daddr=42.09343,-83.91424+to:41.98392,-84.66163+to:41.79369,-86.03015+to:41.76027,-86.80044+to:41.6316143,-87.0994742+to:41.5891,-87.58339+to:Illinois+Beach+State+Park,+Zion,+IL+to :Milwaukee,+WI+to:41.6447,-87.57855+to:48183&hl=en&sll=41.566142,-87.246552&sspn=0.535314,1.352692&geocode=Fb3uggId_gUK-ynTMcikwjg7iDGoyDRof2xNug%3BFXZLggIdAJL_-ilF6jJTlb88iDEa-Uk2B92gOg%3BFbCfgAIdgir0-ilHG3R-sG09iDHs43alZyk1UA%3BFZq4fQIdukjf-inHMwE0P9kWiDFB_GYxSBpUog%3BFQ42fQIdyIfT-im_W5h-SQQRiDEdLUB7Hd-ekw%3BFX4_ewIdrvfO-ilvAeWXj7wRiDG8O5R0P8nQFw%3BFWyZegIdYpXH-imF323OzSEOiDFucWdwb4ncUw%3BFeOJhwIdOCHE-iEJkrg14Ka6aQ%3BFba4kAIdVqfC-innR4tX1wIFiDGEe0G1IhlfRA%3BFZxyewIdSqjH-ilZbC7g1yAOiDFspnWivzRDXw%3BFb3uggId_gUK-ynTMcikwjg7iDGoyDRof2xNug&t=h&mra=dpe&mrsp=9&sz=10&via=1,2,3,4,5,6,9&z=10)

That could be done. Work days that week so I will have Friday off and then start nights on Monday night. Get home and have to stay up for the climatize to nights and clean the bike and put away the gear. hmm, definately do-able. Now I just gotta check with the boss

Since I'm not getting any commitments from anybody on this, besides Cave... who was the man that helped research it the first time... I may end up cancelling this. Substitute in a bike night wed, and friday. Ride to a cousin's grad party sat, out of town, and hit up my buds bday party... all things I was going to blow off....

tis the way the cookie crumbles I guess....
