Hi, Dean.

I used Automap Streets Plus to do some different routes from Toronto to
Indianapolis, versus the routes to Milwaukee. The difference is more
than an
hour. It's closer to 3. Milwaukee is 1100 km from Toronto (approximately
miles) via the toll road around Chicago. Should be "doable" in 11 hours,
it always takes us closer to 12 due to construction around Chicago.

According to the mapping program, Indy is something like 518 miles. Even
rounding off to 520 or 530, we get closer to 9 hours driving time. And
one of
the routes is all Interstate with Indianapolis being the one major city
come across.

So, from a Toronto perspective, GenCon is considerably closer (25%
closer) in
