And so it begins.

Top tip of the day: don't speed in Ohio. Their highway patrol is crazy.

Nevada was on me like flies on sh*t when I crossed through there. Two tickets and I can't even count how many more HP sightings.

Careful.

Chicago is actually very nice. You were probably in Southie or driving through Gary, IN (i.e. ****holes).

I think we were in the hood, but we just settled in oak brook (I think) illinois, pics will come in the am, just shy of 13 hours on road is a bit tiring. Took lots of pics met up with a e36 M3 in I'LL FROM nY stoped and talked with him and did a mini shoot with the two he said he'd be checking out this thread. Also diagnosed the left side nosie we were having, a style 5 was trying to escape. all fixed and ready to go for tomorrow, still need a new tire as the flat we got was due to a hole in the side wall from debris, do belive the plan is to have a shop in vegas order one so we can have it installed when we arrive

Like I said pics tomorrow and have a good night all!

You're probably in the same part of Chicago I went through.

Needless to say I wasted NO time getting through there.
