OK, sports fans, time to check in.
Due to time considerations, I sticking to the big slab to and from the rally.
I essentially have two primary choices going from Milwaukee and heading towards St louis:
1.) Take 294 around Chicago, then pick up 55 to STL.
2.) Take 43 out of Milwaukee, to 39, then to 55.
Door number 1 saves me about an hour and one half of riding, but puts me in the "kill zone" going around Chicago.
Door #2 is far more tame, but adds a chunk of time.
For you veteran rally rats and riders who have navigate around Chicago, is there a preferred time to hit 294?
