I love the Mid West, I would move here if I could convince Jim and the kids. The scenery is amazing, the cornfields are huge and they have the best cheese in the US. I managed to bring back two big blocks of cheese and a bag of cheese curds too, they are supposed to be amazing but I haven't tried them yet. Apparently they have great custard and butter burgers too but I didn't have a chance to check them out, I had to settle for a picture of the sign instead. Today started early, 3:00 am West coast time, with a drive to the Madison airport for my flight into Chicago. As you can see, the plane was tiny, only 3 seats across the plane and we had to deplane right onto the tarmac. The plane was so small we had to gate check all bags because only a purse could fit into the overhead. I didn't get a chance to really see how big Chicago Ohare was during the trip here but I sure got a feel for it this connection. I had to change to a different terminal and it took about 20 minutes to walk there through the crowd. They have 6 different terminal here and the crowds are insane. I'm happy to be getting onto my last flight home, I managed to get upgraded to first class somehow. That never happens so you can bet I'm going to enjoy every minute of the experience. I miss the kids and Jim and am definitely looking forward to being home soon.
