Friends, sure, I can be friends with those that I don't always agree with much of the time. Freedom of expression and debate of opinions and ideas is of great value in our society. Just try not to be a jerk about it. Be fair, even-handed and really try to grasp the viewpoints of others without being offensive. You will then have all the friends you need here and in the real world. Take care. Peace out, and see you somewhere down the road! . . .

Hi - here's my question.  You described a route from Chicago to STL in an earlier post, something along the lines of Elgin, Sycamore, Oregon, Sterling, Quad Cities...then down along the east bank of the Mississippi, connecting to Rt 96 to take Golden Eagle ferry to Missouri flood plain biking into St Charles.

Do you by chance have a cue sheet or online link to this route you can point me to?  

I'm planning a ride STL-Chicago and interested in alternatives to the Route 66 trail.

Hi. I just sent a friend request to ask you a question. A while back you suggested that I use Hwy 12 to shorten my trip across IN to MI. I wanted to find out if you had a preferred route to get there and where you actually get on Hwy 12. Thanks, Jeff.

What's the rundown on this custom racing bike you have? I'm looking to get something custom built myself.
