This year, we're doing it a little different. Normally at this time of year, I'm climbing on a plane to fly out to Las Vegas for vacation with my best buddy who lives there. We usually head up to Cedar City for some Shakespeare, and then pick a national park to go ogle.
This year, Dave's coming here for a change of pace. Going to spend a couple of days in Chicago hanging out and catching at least one show. Then we're heading up to the North Woods to the neighborhood of the old family homestead for a few days of hiking in the woods and floating on lakes. Down the Great River Road to the Quad Cities, overnight with the Trappists, and finish off with a flying trip to the alma mater and a couple of days in Springfield to look over the new Lincoln library.
I don't know what my internet access is likely to be over the next ten days, so posting will probably be light. I'll likely have pictures when I get back.
