Its a little over a week away and I'm starting to plan my trip to enemy territory for the Purdue game. Google seems to think that, from Ann Arbor, there are three viable, almost equal time-wise, ways to get to Purdue.
Normally I wouldn't care that much about a few minutes here or there, but I want to get back to Ann Arbor as quickly as humanly possible after the game so that I can make all or most of the hockey game, and I'm betting I'm probably not alone on this. So the question I would like to pose to the MGoBoard is directed towards experienced road-gamers to Purdue:
What is the actual fastest route from Ann Arbor to Purdue? The shortest route is to take US-23 south to US-24 and then taking it over, but that appears to have a lot of not-freeway along the way (Also: Ohio). The second route involves taking I-94 to I-69, following I-69 to Fort Wayne, and then taking the last part of the first route over. More freeway, but also more distance. The third option is taking I-94 all the way to Gary and then heading south on I-65 to West Lafayette. Again, longer distance, but also 100% interstate.
I, and anyone else in my predicament, appreciate the advice. The hockey game depends on it, and this is Notre Dame we're talking about, so missing this would make me sad, even after we beat Purdue.
