How far from the Milwaukee airport to Janesville?

How far from Janesville to Alpine?

Thanks.
from Milwaukee to Janesville is about 2 hours.
From Janesville to Alpine is about an hour maybe at little over

(All on Interstate 43) Out of Janesville/Beloit area take I43 to Alpine...very easy... just follow the FIBs.
Definitely go Milwauke over Chicago - not only is it shorter, the drive is a heck of a lot easier!

And, if you are going to Alpine from Janesville, I have directions that won't take you to Beloit first. A bit quicker!

I am thinking of Alpine this year instead of that new Toyota in Chicago. I don't like the looks of it. Would be my first time at Alpine. Is it truly as crazy as I've heard over the years? Better than cincy? Where is everybody staying then?
I've been lazy most all of my life,
Writing songs and sleeping late.
Any manual labor I've done purely by mistake.

I have been to Tinley, Cincy and Alpine. It is by far the biggese tailgate. They a huge grass parking lot that is full for the tailgate. Cincy is nice but you can't actually tailgate at the venue. There are a few smaller lots across the street that everyone parties in. It is a good time, but more spread out than Alpine. I have seen some crazy things at Alpine. It is a wild time. We have been taking a bus trip up there for several years now and we always have a large tailgate setup. I would recomend it to anyone!

So where's the main hotel that you tend to "take over"?
