Northwest Chicagoland road meet: November 2021
« on: May 03, 2021, 10:22:36 PM »

This year I'll be hosting a road meet to share what Chicago's northwest suburbs have to offer, from Algonquin to Elk Grove Village. Sights will include:
  • The impressive Western Algonquin Bypass on Illinois route 31
  • Longmeadow Parkway and its brand new bridge over the Fox River
  • The vintage US-20 Elgin Bypass
  • Upgrades, widening, and new exits on I-90, the Jane Addams Tollway
  • The long-awaited Illinois 390 tollway
Use the poll above to nominate your favorite dates, and let me know if you have any road attraction recommendations.

Longmeadow Parkway, I’m in ;)

I mean, I live off of a road with a somewhat similar name, so why not?

The concept of doing this Thanksgiving weekend sounds a little stressful to me. If it falls then, I may or may not feel up for coming down and it may be a last minute decision (which I know can be a little agitating for getting a head count).

It'd be my only possibility of making it from 800 miles out.

I'm very interested!  I voted for November 13 and 20 because I'm not sure what the holidays will look like this year and whether my husband and I will want to spend Thanksgiving with either of our families.

Maybe Crash-It can give a defensive driving demonstration...

How many times have I told you not to drop the mic like that?  They're expensive to replace.

Keep right except to pass.  Yes.  You.

Male pronouns, please.

I'm rather partial to whipped cream, personally.

Hopefully he won't live up to his name.

Or maybe a seminar by Crash-It : "Your car horn is your friend; how to use it effectively"
