That's about 70 miles south of me...

Sorry to hear you have to go through Chicago...Flying into Madison would've been easier but it isn't a big airport either.

Oh and you are privileged sir...Dodgeville is the most populous city and county seat of Iowa County, Wisconsin. That's somethin' alright!

Beer is cheap here compared to Dallas. It's got that going for it. I would have flown in closer, but it was a last minute deal and flights were scarce and expensive.

I did get to go through 62 straight miles of 45mph due to construction on I90 west of Chicago. That was a special kind of beating.

I-90 is a joke right now.

If it wasn't for the gross corruption between the construction companies and the politicians the expressways would be fine. The expressways going through Chicago are among the most heavily trafficked in the world and they are built to minimum standards so they need rebuilding every few years...envelope please...trust me, I was born, raised, and lived there for 45 years...I know.

no doubt,

I live well out from the city and it's still not far enough.

The only thing good about living around chicago is the food

12 pack of Coors runs about 12-14 bucks in DFW. Under 10 bucks at the Dodgeville Super Wally World.

I'm thinking of driving to Kansas or Arizona and coming into Chicago from that direction. It has to be quicker than I90.

Brush off the drive, I'm sure the rental car your in makes the drive a pleasurable experience. More like when and the hell can I get back home so I can drive my truck again.

SCO? That stuff is still around? I used to administer a CLASS system that ran on SCO back in the day.

HEHE I used to teach a Solaris administration class back in 2001.  VI editor and a shell, there's nothing that can't be accomplished.  Wink

Some of my best work has been plagiarizing from others with a 12 pack close by. Wink

SCO is dead these days. I think some Isreali company bought the dried bones of what was left and nothing really has happened since.

The previous owners thought lawyers were a better investment than updating their aging crap. They lost in court and then went belly up altogether.

Flew home this morning. I took hwy 14 from Janesville, WI into Chicago. Stayed the night in Schaumburg by a mall complex, took some back roads into O'Hare and caught an earlier flight out. Spent about 32 seconds in security. Flight was bumpy as hell the whole way back dodging storms and landing right between a couple at DFW. Got to Park and Fly and some asshat parked his Tahoe about an inch off my drivers side door. But I bet my bootprint in his $hit buffs right out, maybe.

Don't you love that. There's never a prime space open at Park and Fly it seems or they want to direct me into the next open space. Slots I could never get the old Silverado out of if there were cars populated in the spots across the isle. On a couple different occasions waited an enormous amount of time for Park and Fly to come pick me up when arriving back. I started using Parking Spot North. They seem to run more shuttles more frequently.
