February 4-7, 2016 - Over the weekend, I drove up to Chicago with friends. I woefully neglected to take many photos, which makes it very difficult to craft this post into an engaging narrative.
All packed up for my trip into Chicago Cubs territory.

So, my best baseball conversation was with a gas station attendant - who conceded that the Cards would probably win the division.
On Saturday morning we drove up to Wisconsin (first time to WI!) to go snowboarding (first time snowboarding!) at Cascade Mountain.
