Minnesota/Illinois pards

Thinking about driving to the in laws in Minneapolis and, possibly attending the Morristown, MN shoot in September. Coming from NJ I normally drive through Chicago. I assume that's a bad idea with firearms in the car. Any way to avoid that without too far out of the way?

Assuming you are taking interstates, just come west off the end of the lake on over

to I-88,When you cross the Illinois boarder if you have gps tell it you want to go to Rochelle,

I-39, wave as you pass the Peace Road exit....

Take 39 north and hook in to 90 at Rockford and north on 90 and so on.

I believe 90 is under a fair amount of construction, between Chicago and Rockford.

Im avoiding going thataway this summer

so far so good.

While this adds a couple miles, they should be fast miles avoiding the 14 mph city suburb mess.

Avoids Chicago, all is well.

There is an Illinois tollway website, check a couple days before you head out.

Happy trails, pard.

Yup. Stay on I-80 all the way through Illinois. There is just one toll booth to deal with. Remember to put ALL guns in the trunk.

Even yer carry piece??? :P
