So its confirmed.

Im riding from Seattle to Chicago and leaving on the 1st of September.

Ill be taking I-90 to I-94 all the way to Chicago. its about 2100 miles and google map says it should take 30 hours. (im sure i could make up some time in Montana and north Dakota)

should be fun, no clue what to expect :p

Be careful in Montana and Wyoming (if you go that way). They love to nail out-of-staters on the freeway. There are a couple of Hwys that run East-West that state 'Prudent Speed', but they don't run very far from what I found.

Is this the first long trip for you on a bike?

Try planning your trip so you DO NOT arrive in chicago between 3:00pm and 7:00pm.

Otherwise have fun :)

if you can put google maps on your phone and watch traffic, milwaukee to chicago is basically one BIG construction zone. google maps you can see where it gets bad and can take the surface streets :):beerchug:

Hey Tony!

If you are blazing through Montana and find a sheep entangled in a fence, what time is it?































































You guessed it!
