Here's a way you shouldnt attempt...

CHICAGO (CBS/AP) The tour bus driver for the Dave Matthews Band was formally charged Wednesday with dumping human waste on passengers of a sightseeing boat.

The alleged driver, Stefan A. Wohl, surrendered to police Wednesday. He faces two misdemeanor charges of reckless conduct and contaminating the Chicago River. Whol, 42, was released on $1,000 bond.

Wohl now faces up to one year in prison and a $10,000 fine.

In August, passengers were hit with 80 to 100 gallons of waste as they cruised under the Kinzie Street bridge. Investigators said the dumping could not have been an accident.

Cook County State's Attorney Richard Devine discussed the charges against the driver at a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has also filed a civil lawsuit seeking $70,000 in damages against the band and driver alleging they violated state environmental laws.

According to authorities, Wohl was alone in the bus and driving to a downtown hotel on Aug. 8 when he allegedly emptied the bus' septic tank as it crossed the metal grates of the Kinzie Street bridge.

The waste poured through the grates and onto the open deck of the Chicago's Little Lady tour boat, which was passing below with more than 100 people on board.

True .. But last summer I noted that Iowa and Kansas had open dump stations in rest areas. Those might be out of your planned route though, especially if you go south first before cutting west. There is a KOA just west of Indianapolis that is open year round that might be a good spot for you to stop/sleep/dump on your last night on the return trip...
