Hi all,

Just looking for advice on where to take the DR for the thanksgiving weekend... :scratch: I live in Chicago but would certainly be open for a single day or multi day (up to 3 days) trip somewhere.

Not looking for anything in particular... never tried off roading yet, but would be interested in trying something not too serious; pavement twisties seem the most attractive idea; nice scenery is always... nice :pardon: would prefer heading south rather than north in hopes of warmer weather, but open to all suggestions.

:s_smile

Doing the lake Michigan circle tour would be awesome... but yeah, a bit late in the season.

Due south, Shawnee National Forest. Awesome camping and plenty of dirt roads in the area.

That looks like a great spot! Downside is that it's 300 miles away and temperatures start dipping below freezing after tomorrow.

Still looking for some twisties closer to home... Just not seeing anything come up so far. Lincoln Scenic Byway seems to be made up of straight segments primarily... The search continues :)

Then staying local I'd head up 94 towards Fox Lake and the Twin lakes area just over the border in Wisconsin. 30 some years ago it used to be decent riding that way, I don't know about now. Either way you go this time of year, temps aren't going to be friendly.
