It was a pretty miserable trip from Benton Harbor, MI to Chicagoland. It literally rained the entire time. Sometimes it let up a bit, but it never actually stopped until I was north of the city. So I don't have any great pictures of the Chicago skyline or anything, though I have some older ones. Here's what I did get:
I stopped at Best Buy in Niles to pick up the latest Counting Crows CD. For some reason that Best Buy was listed as the only one in Chicago with it in stock. And hey I got $2 off so it was cheaper than downloading it from Amazon, plus I don't have to worry about burning it onto a disc.
I got lunch at this Chinese place nearby that was pretty terrible. The "baked seafood" stuff they had out looked like a pile of barf and they'd emptied a bunch of old onto a pan of new, which doesn't seem very sanitary. Plus the Diet Pepsi was flat. Good thing I'm not going there again.
I was pretty much worn out by then so after a stop at a Target restroom, I checked into my motel in Gurnee, IL. It's just about across the street from Six Flags, though I don't think that was open today. It's probably just open on weekends now that summer is over. Here are a couple of pictures from my car:
Until next time...
