@Izzie,
HA!

You are absolutely prohibited from driving in Chicago!

No worries on getting around while you're here. Public transportation goes nearly everywhere we want to go and I drive downtown to the city regularly.

When we lived in Naperville, we drove up to Lake Geneva, but I can't recall how long it took.
Map, if you're 50 miles North of Chicago, you're closer to Lake Geneva than you are to Chicago. A LOT closer. Beautiful Lake… is about 26 miles around if you want to hike the trail. Great if you want to see Mansions, but not so much for Nature. If it's natural beauty you want, I'd be looking about 2 hours north of there to the Wisconsin Dells. It's a tourist trap, but only because it IS such an extraordinarily beautiful place. In and around there you’ll find plenty of trails, camping, you name it.

@Izzie,
You're in Dallas?!

Hey, if you're planning to drive through Tulsa on your way to Kansas, PLEASE stop for a visit! We'd love to see you again!!!

Remember, you have a room here. If S is with you, we'll fix up the sleeper sofa. All I need to do is fluff the pillows.

Co-ed Prison Sluts is still playing on Fridays at the Annoyance Theatre. I'll be happy to accompany anyone who wants to go to that.

MAYBE..........................


Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh - loved talking with you today SheW....


MAYBE


MAYBE


MAYBE...

Oh... btw - my plans are changing as we speak... I'm trying to get hold of my niece in Houston. Thinking about little fella and I driving down to Houston on Wednesday, coming back Thursday nite...

so, maybe easier for you to come to Houston on Thursday, rather than Dallas on Saturday. Haven't spoken with Rock yet about his schedule... I think he's fluid too...........

waiting to hear from beautiful niece... then, it may be all stations go to see if anyone is around in Houston (Mac, Edgar... maybe) on Thurs. I know I know, I should be more organised. Need to get out the house and go do, so, major shift of plans going on here.

(ha, there's a thing Rolling Eyes )






MAYBE

@mac11,
ok..... trying to get a car organised Shocked - S-boy is a little under the weather... not sleeping well - so ........... I think it would be better if we drive down Thurs, I'll spend the nite catching up with my niece and ex sis in law and look at all the wedding plans and stuff - then if we can maybe arrange a quick get together on Friday before we drive back if that's convenient for anyone - THAT WOULD BE FAB FAB FAB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very Happy

Mac hun - can you PM me your phone number and I will try and give you a call tonite and see if you are around Friday... lunchtime-ish. Edgar too.... PDiddies ..... anyone whose around.... looks like SheW will be joining us there. YAY!

May only be a quick get together - if you let us know where to be - we'll be! That would be just wonderful if we can make it happen and I can get my bahookie organised with the little fella Razz

@OCCOM BILL,
We ended up doing a backpacking trip in the Kettle Moraines North in Wisconsin. It was a quick 30 mile 2 day trip.

I was really looking for something resembling the backcountry; this wasn't it. We were forced to stay in backpacking shelters (3 walls and a roof shelters), and the only water on the trail was from wells (no clean streams, etc). It wasn't too crowded, which was nice, but I need to find something much more remote. Overall, not a bad trip and a good start to my Appalachian Trail training (goal to complete the trip in 2011).

Depending on where she is in Lincoln Square, you could take either the red line or the brown line downtown. I know we plan on meeting downtown at least a couple times over the course of her visit...

Well, staying with my sis is now a moot point. She will be out of town on vacation, so ... I'm looking at either a day trip or... crashing with someone for the night maybe, um Rolling Eyes ...please?

Those are probably 14-day advance purchase prices, chica. Better hurry if you can (jumping up and down, rocking back and forth), and umm..... I'm cooking up an idea for Saturday night downtown.
