|Purple Iowa Fields!|

Traveling to Chicago is always "fun". And, even though it was rush hour, we were abe;e to breeze through to the inner city with relative ease. Probably because the gridlock was on the other side of the Highway.... The people going home on a Friday.

|Self Serve Docking|
Cheryl noted that the docking procedure was a "self serve" situation. We had to walk to our car and board up. And although the luggage never left our sight, it was a challenge to lug it 6 city blocks and down the tracks.

Ah! We are finally moving. Time: Currently 9:39 PM We selected a window seat for the best visibility... at night.
|Wouldn't that be Awesome|
So that is that. I figured I would try to squeeze this in before the ride gets too bumpy or I lose connection.
And although I would love to keep with the Boston Theme, We did not bring any Boston Lager on the train. I doubt it would have been allowed even if we had. But wouldn't that have been swell?
