Neos2 Posted February 11, 2008 Share Posted February 11, 2008 Looking for a little help here, routing my way home through caches. We are attending a wedding the end of this month and plan to do a little caching on our way home. The wedding is very near Summitt on Archer Ave and we will be staying in Countryside. We will do some caching around Oak Park because we are familiar with that area already and have a cache we particularly want to do there, but we don't know much about Countryside and the area south and southeast of there. Our last trip to Chicago we had cached around Oak Park and then wandered up to Racine to grab a Kringle. We planned to do Resurrection Mary (GCGZJH) and then go grab the A.P.E. cache (GC1596) on our way home. Well, we didn't plan for traffic or nasty weather! We did manage to get to Resurrection Mary, but it was too dark, too cold, and too raw by the time we were done with it to do the A.P.E. cache--we thought we'd just do it the next time we were up (Bad idea, huh?). If I'd only known then what I know now, we'd have gotten the A.P. E. cache first. Oh well, so it goes. But that leads me to my questions.... The wedding is Friday night, we plan to hang out and cache in the Oak Park to Countryside part of town on Saturday, and head out early on Sunday toward home --eventually we need to hook up with I-65 in Indiana to get home. How would we do for time on our way out of town is we cache our way out of town along smaller roads, say maybe run down through the caches in Palos Hills/Park/Heights areas and then Oak Forest toward 80 and then jump on 80 when we start running out of time. In other words, how's traffic in that part of town compared to the major highways? Any directions we want to avoid because we will hit bad traffic? Really bad parking? Etc. Any advice appreciated!
