Don,

222 is a great band!  Please stay in touch as I'm a classic rover in Mi, and I'll be out in Sept.  See www.davedevos.com to see my station.

It looks like a good place to start is the grid intersection west of Flint (EN72 / EN73 / EN82 / EN83) and then heading down I-65 to Indianapolis before picking up I-70 to St Louis and then I-44 home.
