Lucky for me I can cruise comfortably in the LS at 3 digits, so I guess the point is moot.

That being said, we're definitely out for this one.

*sadface*


Giant oof. Woulda like to meet you. ;.;

Is it the date or location? Not that it's going to change just for you. 😉


It's the location for us.

But I want you guys to try new spots! Eventually the kids will be old enough for roadtrips, and I'd love to branch out. I've only been talking about it for years.....

Yeah. at this point I don't even know if I can get up there on my own. I'd be down for a "they left us behind" mini meet.

Great.... Now you're going to have people purposely breaking down around here, just so I can fix their stuff. You're lucky the Mrs. likes you.....




























And you're very welcome. I'm glad it was an easy fix and we were able to get you back on the road.

Now, do we need to do the same with your psh????? lol

Didn’t bother to call you because you “hate coming into they city” and I didn’t feel like listening to you bitch about it tongue.gif

Bitter sounds like a younger version of myself, I hated the city with every ounce of my being. I hated the people, the traffic, the crime, etc.

Then I grew up and realized that there's a lot more opportunity here. There is more money to be had working in the city limits of chicago, and living outside of cook county. (especially if you live walking distance from any L line). A monthly ventra pass (pace and cta busses, most 'L' subways. 100 bucks and can get you more or less anywhere in the city for a month, and some places out by skokie, rosemont, schaumburg, o'hare etc.

In theory, you can have your home with a personal garage you can wrench in, take the red or blue line inbound, not really worry about commuting expenses (and insurance will be significantly cheaper if you don't commute via car. when I drove 100 bucks of gas was right about 18 days worth, and insurance was a ton. Garaged car insurance is dirt cheap. I figure a vehicle you own outright and commute in (not counting repairs or any of that) costs around 300-350 dollars a month in gas and insurance on average, with $150 a year for a plate sticker. Garage insurance is like $20 a month and if its in the garage for the winter you aren't really putting any gas in it, so it adds up to be a nice amount of yearly savings (more car parts!)

I was probably busy anyway if it was anything other than a weekend day and I'm usually busy on those trying my best not to be busy. So for the next meet we're all driving up near Chris's place and deflating a tire or chucking out a spark plug. Guaranteed 6GC meet!

Boats and hoes will be provided, but everyone must bring their own.

It was a Sunday. I only called Ender because he’s right down the street from me. We needed to turn it around quickly to get Annette back on the road.

No explanations needed, just razzin ya'll. I'm out here in the Illinois prairie where there's only chipseal country lanes and tacos. The nearest Walmart is a staggering 15 minute drive. An Amazon warehouse is a shocking 2 whole miles away from me! It's all so distant. How do I ever survive this...abyss...
