Which way will it go?

I see a lot of threads on complaining about how long it takes to get a vehicle, but I'm truly curious, what route will it take?

I'm in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada....I see the jeep is starting to follow the West edge of Lake Michigan.

Anyone follow their previously received vehicle on a similar route?

Re: Which way will it go?

I feel your pain. Is there something going on with the truckers union? My jeep had an expected arrival of 3/28/11 to chicago and I'm stuck in the staged for shipment update since 3/23.

I know mine is on the rail cars...not sure if it's Canadian Pacific or Canadian National...or a joint venture with someone else in the USA. I'm just glad to see progress. It was stuck in Bensenville for 2 days. It sucks cause it was supposed to arrive before I went to Maui...now my vacation will be horribly ruined thinking of my Jeep waiting there at the dealer for when I get back...lol. What a horrible scenario I know...lmao.

Re: Which way will it go?

IMO, there is no rhyme or reason on the build and delivery dates (although I do suspect that the chrome packages increases the wait). I have seen some get delivery in 5-6 weeks and others over months.

Looks like ours on on the same train! Should get mine a day after yours arrives. I'm in Prince George. Curious to see if it speeds up at all once they get North of the border.

I bet my Jeep is going to Winnipeg, then head West towards Saskatoon, then Edmonton.

boldd - When you get to Maui, make sure to drive the "West Maui" loop - if you enjoy "pucker factor". As you are doing it, imagine doing it in your new WK2.

It is looking like we go thru Winnipeg, Saskatoon and then onto Edmonton according to CP Rail's Network Map.

Great to see them landing in Canada. I'm hoping boldd and my JGC will be in Edmonton Monday night or Tuesday, then Ghouston's should be in Prince George by Thursday/Friday.
