**Summary:**Recently many authors have obtained interesting results on the existence of a dense $G_\delta$ set of common hypercyclic vectors for a path of operators. We show that on a separable infinite dimensional Hilbert space, there is a path of chaotic operators that is dense in the operator algebra with the strong operator topology, and yet each operator along the path has the exact same dense $G_{\delta}$ set of hypercyclic vectors. As a corollary, the operators having that particular set of hypercyclic vectors form a connected subset of the operator algebra with the strong operator topology.
