I agree with others. Put your weapons where they can't be reached,obey the speed limit and cruise through. But if you really want to avoid it,take I-79 to I-64 then get on one of the parkways that takes you around the tip of Illinois and into Missouri. But it does take you out of your way. If you're not in a hurry and don't care about the extra gas it's a nice drive. WE live near Reading,Pa and have taken that route once coming back to Pa from Az.The route got us close to the northern end of LBL and we stayed at one of the Canal campground overnight.If you have the Senior Pass it's half price.

Don't worry about traveling thru IL. There's a lot of BS on the internet repeated by people who don't have a clue about IL law. IL firearm laws are not as onerous as some of these ill-informed internet firearm 'experts' portray.
As long as you have a valid CCW from your home state you can have a loaded firearm in your vehicle while traveling thru IL.
Here's IL's statute:
430 ILCS 66/40
(e) Nothing in this Act shall prohibit a non-resident from transporting a concealed firearm within his or her vehicle in Illinois, if the concealed firearm remains within his or her vehicle and the non-resident:
(1) is not prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm under federal law;
(2) is eligible to carry a firearm in public under the laws of his or her state or territory of residence, as evidenced by the possession of a concealed carry license or permit issued by his or her state of residence, if applicable; and
(3) is not in possession of a license under this Act.
If the non-resident leaves his or her vehicle unattended, he or she shall store the firearm within a locked vehicle or locked container within the vehicle in accordance with subsection (b) of Section 65 of this Act.


Thank you this is useful and new information to me!

You are welcome. I spent my career making sure people got the correct legal information so they can avoid problems.
As you can tell from some of the others who posted 'stuff' they don't know beans from applebutter about IL law.
Have a safe and enjoyable trip.

Thanks for the helpful info.

That should do it for this thread.

OP - You can message me if you'd like the thread reopened. Otherwise, it looks to me like you got the info you're looking for.
