I went to Chicago for 2 weeks to visit my younger son. I had a really good trip. The last time I visited him, Vanna White was impounded. Of course, I created a blog post about the details. (2014-10-07 post) This trip, I decided to fly because of 2 reasons : (1) Since the van was impounded on the last trip and I didn't pay the parking tickets that they mailed me, my license tag is probably on file with the police. Most cities now have car-tag scanners that link to information about you and I fear that they may want the money that they claim I owe. (2) I looked at the flights available and it only takes 2 hours to fly there. In addition, the gas that I would use would be more than the cost to fly. Using google maps, I can easily see that the trip is over 700 miles and will take over 11 hours driving. Consider the danger of driving that distance versus the risk of flying, I took the flight option. Note: In the future when Georgia changes the numbers on the car-license-tags, I may drive again. (My son often flys to Atlanta on Southwest Airlines and recommended that I use that airline. I left my house at 6:15AM in a taxi to get to the Dunwoody MARTA station. The flight left about 9:30AM and landed at Midway Airport. My return flight was at 6:30PM and I arrived home in a taxi from MARTA about 11:30PM.)

The blog pictures are in sections: (1) Downtown buildings that were near the West Wacker area, (2) Wisconsin State Fair that we went to, (3) food that we ate, (4) others.
