UP. The 200 extra miles is well worth avoiding the hellhole of Chicago.
I always go through the UP to/from home.
I just wish us2 was 70 mph.

I second that...the construction in Indiana is pretty crappy right now. As was states though, take 294 if you do choose to go through chi town. Its usually less of a cluster and you skip downtown

Re: Important

Never been to the youPee or the bridge so I think we may take that way up as has been suggested.

I don't have an ipass either and it takes 14 days to get one...

Re: Important

Its a rare find when you find one that can operate a stick properly. Those are the keepers.

Re: Important

Mac, i just went to WI 2 weekends in a row. my thoughts,

I have, in the past, been able to fly threw downtown Chicago with no issues. 2 weeks ago i ran into much much more traffic than i like to deal with. it took me many more hours than normal to get to my destination. not as many tolls, but still tolls.

294, much faster but without an ipass you get caught up in toll booth traffic often. there were times i was sitting in those cash lanes for well over 5 mins.

both options put you on 94. once into wi, there is a bunch of construction and it got to the point where i got off 94 and drove down a frontage road and was making way better time.

i have never been to the UP but i bet there is less traffic. either way Chicago will have 4 or 5 lanes of heavy traffic, so if you hate other drivers, well.... not sure if the UP's route has roads that size.
