I was sitting in my work truck under the I-65 bridge watching the police direct the cars towards the lake county fair grounds Wednesday around 1:00 early afternoon.. I was fortunate to see many cars..So then Thursday morning I figured I would get a chance to see you guys leave and everyone was gone! What time did everyone leave? I was so disappointed..

Does anyone know a place I could get a Power Tour Window sticker from? I wasn't able to pick one up at Norwalk.

Unfortunately each stop was done at 7 each night. This year they didn't have drivers meeting at the start. So everyone just left from what ever hotel they stayed at. We were in the Norwalk to Crown point leg. We also were disappointed in not being able to leave as a group.

Are you still on the tour? They are at the Painless booth.

I'm at the Raddison hotel if anybody wants to meet somewhere for a beer. I'll check this post in an hour or so.


Car is running perfectly, hope I didn't just jinx myself!

650 miles in 3 days! Not a single issue with the car, not bad considering I was working on it less than 24 hours before leaving.

Doing the Long Haul is now on my bucket list!

I'm not a big picture taker, but here are a few shots...

Wed morning before leaving for Crown Point. I didn't want to do the trip with just turn downs, so I had my tail pipes put back on.


Heidt's for lunch in Lake Zurich, IL





At the hotel in Bettendorf Iowa.

The 04, and '12 Tours were shorter, but this tour had the best weather by far, and mostly great venues. They said 20% more cars than last year.
