"It's a hundred and six miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas...and we're wearing sunglasses." ~ Elwood Blues (The Blues Brothers)

Today, we made our annual road trip to Chicago for the Strictly Sail ShowWhat a difference a year makes! Last year, it was Strictly Sail; this year it was Chicago Boat, RV, and Strictly Sail Show. Last year it was at Navy Pier; this year it was at McCormick Place. Last year, it was fun; this year it was not. Last year, we stayed in the city; this year, we went home. But there was one consolation: Last year, it was -25º; this year, it was 56º!
