Trip Notes

Cicadas – the Northern Illinois Brood has a 17-year cycle and last emerged in 1990, and yes, this is the 17th year and we were here as they emerged.  Very plentiful they are and fly into cars, knock into your head, sing very loudly, fly where ever you may be.  Sam will be 31 next time they appear, Adam 41.

Satellite radio is an excellent choice for multi-state travel.

Navigational systems are wonderful for travel in cities like Chicago, but not in their tunnels.

Gas in Bowling Green – $2.79; gas in Westmont, IL, $3.14; gas in Chicago, $3.53.

    I was in Chicago last week (at the airport) with my face pressed up against the window with some kids. Cicadas dive bombing, drunken flying, window smashing — they are HUGE!

    Who knew?
