    I was wondering that too, hopefully not far... and a flat drive.

    Don't feel to bad about not getting South of Chicago today, you saved yourself good hours. Took me 3 hours 22 min to go 94 miles from Sussex to around the I-294 I-55 interchange where I not so politely said F this and parked as Google maps said it was over an hour still to get thru Gary. My master plan of making DeMotte and a shower got it right in the nads today.

    Oooo, I bet you stink. Lol,,,, nah man, after the cool guy at Richfield reloaded me and reweighing 3 times, my patience was a bit thin. Wouldn't have been prudent for me to try try and make the next exit south. So, I had some Mexican food and a couple Marguritas. Uber is my friend.

    Hey guys and gals, quick question. First let me say I hope y'all had a wonderful Christmas, even you Suspect ;-)
    I'm loading at Westrock in Atl now bound for Anheuser Busch St Louis. I've heard St Louis was a pain in the butt to get into with all the construction and that. Any tips y'all might let me know of?

    Gotcher 2018 fuel stickers yet? Just put mine on.

    Getting into Budweiser right now isn't a problem. If going from Budweiser back into IL the exit for I55 is closed. When you leave Bud and you are at stoplight where YRC yard is, go right and continue straight to stoplight with gas station off to your left. Turn left there, and hang to to left cuz you'll need to take that 1st right (its tight but not that bad if setup properly) and follow that to 55. If you use mapquest once you make that right at the YRC light it should lead you out the way I told you. Once again I cant member street names but @Steelersjunkie had them in his thread awhile back when we were helping someone else out of there.
     
    Farmer54 Thanks this.

    That was me. I should have brought it up sooner as I haven't been back since @keen98 and @Steelersjunkie gave me some directions to avoid the low bridge.

    As mentioned, I had no issues getting in, the Rand got me there with only a minor issue of announcing I had arrived a couple hundred yards to soon but on the right street.

    Getting out to the National Socialist Republic of Mike Madigan was the issue. I wrote down the directions but can't find em now, luckily I noted to look at page 60 in Tim's thread in my address book. Guess I really am only half a Pollack. :)

    Tried to link to the correct place here but van't figure out how. Guess I really am half a Pollack :(

    Well, for the record, I did idle thru, stopping a lot to get out and look, but I wouldn't want to make a habit of it. It was right there man.
