I live out there, don't get a chance to really cruise around these days, a few years ago, there used to be a Friday night meet, Saturday day/night meet and a Sunday morning and evening meet...what goes on around now?? no idea.

Sideways is a great guy, he'll be able to help you out with getting together with peeps out that way!

76 miles each way for almost 6 years now...yeah, i't getting pretty tiresome now.

However, I boycotted the tolls and take 20 which saves me about 165 bucks a month but adds about 15 minutes (unless some hits a deer or magically goes into a blaze in one of the abundant corn fields like last wee) then it's about 30-45 minutes longer.

so yeah, the commute is...adventurous at times.

Yeah, it's the reason why 20 is starting to get packed and what not, people are starting to boycott the tolls more and more.

Seen a black 04 in Rockford on Saturday turning on Perryville north from State, guy and his chick...he looked weirded out that I looked at him in the wife's IMPALLA!!! HALLA!

I was around the Oregon IL area yesterday and got really excited when I realized I was going to be able to wave at another Subie, but then I remembered I was in my truck and he'd probably just think I was crazy.

I don't see very many where I live, Antioch.

It's not as active as it could be, if we can get some people to start posting more often, that'd be awesome.

Yeah, it was a while back when there was a "Team Redline" crew and some other people part of teams...it was funny for sure.

Either way, I've been seeing more and more of them, it's funny, I go out driving my little Fit and see them everywhere, the wife drives her Impala...same story, I take my buddies STI's home and NOTHING! haha

Apparently 815 spans a nice far and wide area.
