Hello, Chicago!

Just a quick note to say...we are in Chicago! We had arranged to bring some Mexican sunshine with us, but I think it hopped on a different flight because it hasn't arrived here yet!

Current temperature is 57F (14C) and it's overcast. Supposed to be a nice day tomorrow though.

Tired, hungry, and very excited to be here! Full update tomorrow morning...stay tuned!

    Howdy R&K,
    You forgot to put the vote link on here so I made one for myself with an email!!! I voted today!!



  2. If that sunshine was packed in a suitcase, it was probably lost by the airline never to be seen again :))

    How are you doing in the vote?

    1. It was either that or the US customs wouldn't allow it in, lol! Today is suppose to be a better day weather wise.

      As of 6:30am, May 8 we are at 5425 and the guy behind us is at 4215. So we are doing well but don't want to let up in case someone comes up fast behind us, just like we did to the other guy.

  3. You are in one of my favorite cities. So much to do just in the downtown area.


We love hearing from you! Please take the time to leave a comment...
