October Road Trip

OK... I'll probably regret this idea but here's the plan... I'm heading to Des Moines, IA to visit my cousin in October. The idea is to be in Des Moines for all or part of the weekend of the 16th - 18th. I have the 13th through the 20th off and I want to meet as many people as possible. A place to stay would be great too.

Also I wanna meet my buddies in MI so I've decided I'm willing to go as far as Indianapolis.

I know it's really far in advance but I'm a planner and just want to know what I'm gonna do. Also I'm trying to gauge interest 'cause if I end up driving there and turning around to drive back then I'll just can the idea and fly.

I'm all for a shorter drive but I figured no one would want to drive closer to Des Moines...

It's probably faster to run through on I-90.

You'd be taking a huge detour if you headed up my way. Although, St. Ignatius is a beautiful drive, so I suppose I could meet you there, lol.

And yeh, i'm taking I-90 then south through Souix Falls... skipping Minnesota... haha

I-90 runs through a town called St. Ignatius which is like, 100 miles form me, I think.

If you took Highway 2, you would run right through where I live, but that's a long drive, lol.
