For those of us (like me) who failed to pre-register in time I learned that the gate will close for registration Thursday at 3:00.

  Hi Everyone,   Well it's only a week until the Drive To SAAC 42 and anyone traveling through the Chicago area is WELCOME to join us. Read the first post for details, it also has a PDF attached with Route directions and maps.
   Also if anyone has two way hand held radio's (Walkie Talkies) this might be a better way of communicating while on the drive. Everyone will be able to join the conversation.  I'll see everyone on June 8th

  I have in-laws that live in Monticello IN.  They have said there is road construction on I-65 in the Lafayette In. area.  So, do your due diligence and check into this. 6/2/2017

Looking at google maps it looks like we should miss most of the construction. We are entering I-65 from US-52 around Ulen IN.  Thank you for the information it is very much appreciated

I will try to be at the Eastbound I-80/southbound I-294 side of Chicago Southland Lincoln Oasis around 5:30 am (depending on traffic) I'm driving a white with blue stripe 69 GT350. I will print up some maps in case anyone needs one. Also as I mentioned earlier post if you have a Walkie Talkie this might be a better way to communicate while on the drive the cell reception was a little poor in some areas.  See everyone tomorrow

Rich, given that I'll be driving the oldest (and slowest) car ( HeadSpin) and driver ( Hysterical), i'll need one of those walkie talkies for sure, so that I can catch up with you and the rest of the group.
