    For shooters heading toward Missouri for the Fall Handicap, I-70 is one lane for about 45 miles just past Indy at the airport. It is one lane for about 3/4 of the way to Terra Haute.

    All of that traffic trying to get into one lane is a real mess, avoid it if you can, both sides East and West under lots of construction.

    I just came through there a couple weeks ago. I took the first exit north to 40 and back onto 70W. at Terra Haute.

    Hap, stay on 40 through TH, it hooks up with 70 out past W Terre Haute. You miss all the fun of 41S

    I-70 from the Illinois border over was in real good shape. Looking forward to the added first weekend that makes Missouri a 9 day shoot with 1100 handicap.

    Hi Zardy.

    Yes for sure on the dinner are you here yet?

    I have a few extra Wall Charts with me if anyone wants to save on the mailing expense.

    Terry.

    Bruce em, I would just take the back roads. State Road 67 through Worthington, Spencer, etc.. I get a kick out of the 2 lane back roads, just get behind a coal truck, they do 65 to 70. Just hope you aren't on the road when the school bus is there.

    You could come through Btown (Bloomington) a little out of the way, but IU is in session and the coeds are out, plus the Big Red liquor stores are having a sale.
