Survey says....

Been bashing various map and nav programs against the real world and it looks like the Friday schedule should run something like this:

1. NLT 0830 EDT*- Depart Cracker Barrel off of I-465/38th St, Indianapolis
2. ~1100 CDT - Arrive I-74/US 150 junction, Bloomington, IL (165 mile leg)
3. ~1215 CDT - Depart Bloomington
4. ~1345 CDT - Reach Galesburg, IL (85 mile leg)
5. ~1600 CDT - Arrive Guest House Motel, Amana, IA (138 mile leg)
*0730 CDT

Disclaimer: YMMV

The route is either 376, 379 or 381 miles depending on which map program is used. If we leave Indy with a full tank and refuel in Bloomington we should be good to go to Amana without stopping, depending on personal hygiene needs of course....

The exit @ Bloominton is 160... take off ramp to right...At stop light turn right onto Market street, BP gas station on left side... plenty of fast foods in that area... there is a side street along east side of BP where we could line back up to leave... I'll have Orangecrate & Gray Chevy truck with white enclosed trailer ( Frankie inside) parked there @ 11am central time...
Check google maps if in doubt...

Sounds like a plan. You don't have a spare purge valve/switch-over valve lying around by any chance - got a P0302 code this evening. Cleared it with the UltraGauge but you never know....

OK so since you guys are doing actual meal time in Bloomington we will just meet up with you guys there so that we can get some face time with the group before the second half of the trip. I'll just make sure we are in the area by the time you have listed and we can get specific by radio. It's a bit of a backtrack for us, but will just make life easier in general.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

OK so...

The service flap that I ordered from SM is slated to be delivered in the morning. Delivery time is going to dictate whether I make it to lunch in bloomington or just fall in line in the 474 area. I'll know more in the morning. lol.

Rumor has it that FedEx does their deliveries here about 9am, so I may be able to make bloomington. Either way I'll be in line at 474, with or without the flap. Hopefully with, and I'll do the install in Amana if necessary.

12 hours, give or take, till go time!
