The Great Caravan

Well, next Saturday I'll be going down for my sister's birthday party, that has been stolen by my grandma (on my mom's side) and turned into a gigantic family affair. So to this end, I'm to be leading the caravan of us northerners down into the wilds of Illinois. Yipee? Well, at least I've been that way once before.

Hopefully I won't lose anyone. We're carpooling as much as is feasable, but it'll still be at least three vehicles. Maybe I'll do something nice like print off maps for everyone so that each car's 'co-pilot' can direct in case of trouble. Too bad we don't have CB radios. And too bad I don't have a cell. I'm not about to buy one just for this trip though.

But for anyone used to Wisconsin traffic, driving in Illinois, especially this close to Chicago, is a real experience. I miss Wisconsin already, and I haven't even left.
