ooooh good idea.

I've looked at Amtrak and it seems simple...except for a case of the fact they wont issue tickets except to Canada outside of themselves...they say that doesnt matter because you can get your tickets through quikie machines...

...but I dont like trusting anything called quickie so I've emailed them... (they say I should get a reply in 24 hours which is not bad going for a company that size!)

Hotwire you say I shall have to look at that aswell...price comparison

Dave,

When you go to the HIT if you take the train you might go right though my town of Bloomington. If I might be able to take you to the HIT Squad. If you leave from Chicago then I know it comes here on the way down there. I will ask my wife and see if we have anything going on that day. What do will you be going down there?

Actually, I shall be heading North from Missouri to get to HIT Squad

I am visiting Chicago...however, I shall be coming into it, as I understand, from the East, and leaving it by the West. Then I shall likely be flying from Quad Cities airport to Saint Loius.

So...I might fly over you. However. Hopefully we will still be able to meet up when I'm in the area I have about three or four days at that point on my tour, that plenty to see some of Southern IL beyond HIT Squad itself.

Did you buy your tickets yet? If you decided to go to chicago and then the HIT Squad. A train ticket from Chicago to Bloomington is $12 bucks. I could pick you up and drive you the rest of the way.
