What city and state would work best for you all?

Chicago would be fantastic so I could catch a Black Hawks game lol

I would be fine with chicago. I live in MN so if its on saturday and I leave friday afternoon I could easily get there and back by the end of the weekend. Heck I could probably get there and back in one day.

Otherwise minnesota and wisconsin have just endless untraveled roads with any kind of driving scenario you could want to test

WI gets plenty of activity, but most police aren't that great at "the game" here. ;)

Thats probably true... Luckily I have never had a run in with a WI Cop before although I have had several close calls(highway 29)... I just wish that LI's were legal in MN like they are in WI... I might still buy one to test it and for the many trips I take. Do you have any roads in mind in WI which might be optimal for testing?

Speeding is also illegal. Just JTK and no one will be the wiser. ;)

Omaha, NE would be pretty sweet for me, and for Radarbusters.com. especially if I could get permission from hayneedle to allow you guys to show off your equipment (by that I mean your radar detectors and laser jammers and laser and radar guns) to the reps whom I work with. But I am really down for any place with in a 7 hour drive.

It's less than that where I'm at. I'd say about 5.5-6 hours from Omaha to my area.

All I know of down here is a Stalker LZ1.

Yeah anywhere within a day of Minneapolis/St.Paul and I believe Omaha is... Plus nebraska is like 10ish hours from dallas so I am sure some of the southern rd users could come as well...The question is now when... It probably shouldn't be for a while so that everyone can get time off and there will be no scheduling conflicts..

I'll take that. It is 630 miles or so. I can do that is 8 hours, maybe less with those running ahead.

Milwaukee

Milwaukee

Milwaukee would be nice, but I think it should be a little further south so some other members don't have to drive as far.

jmichalakjr

Yeah, figured I would throw it out to start it up

I'm pretty much good with anywhere between Omaha, NE and Chicago, but I will need at least a two to three week notice have the dates so I can get it off work. So I guess another good question to as is when will we be meeting?

I hear you talking ole buddy. Missouri would be a very nice place.

Not to mention jammers are illegal in IL. I would move it to a neighboring state where they are legal just in case you get visited by the locals.

haha, yes, I moved back to WI Labor Day weekend. After our first snowfall for this winter, I often wonder why I continue to live here.

If we do a test this winter, WI is probably not going to be the best choice. I know of a good place in south eastern WI, but it would probably be better for a summer get together as it gets fraking (any BSG fans?) cold here.

Well, the days are starting to get longer. Does anyone in the Southern WI Northern IL area have a gun that they would like use to test my set up and anyone else's around here? From reading the posts, the Midwest sure could use some testing, but I am unaware of any members with guns around here.

Midwest? Really hate that drive especially going into Canada for any reason. I don't understand why the Canadian border patrol act like you are trying to invade the 51 state. Indiana does have a good variety of roads and conditions for testing.

Have you heard of issues there? It is the only place I can think of in the SE WI area that has a long stretch. I'm thinking the road the goes north (Vandenboom Rd), rather east and west on 142 (Burlington Rd). There is a town just north of there, Eagle Lake Park in Eagle Lake. Then there is a third location that looks pretty promising, around Silver Lake Rd and Fox River Rd in Silver Lake, WI.

Yeahhh previous plans retracted :/

We shouldn't have 2 regional meets in the same month anyway, it makes for competition between the two. I think early August sounds better, now that I think about it.

that gives me time to acquire and install some LI's

Hey guys, just got my LI up and running and would love to get it tested. I'm in the Madison area. Digging deeper into this thread, I see that there are quite a few of us in southern WI. I'd be up for splitting the rental of a gun and having a smaller meet up closer to home. I've been lurking here for a while, just got popped a couple of weeks ago, which prompted my LI purchase. With all the new construction in Madison, they're setting up laser traps on my commute at least once per week. Let me know if anyone is interested!
Thanks,
