You have died of dysentery

Last vacation, I reported 119 degree weather. This vacation, it will be more like 19 degree weather.

Amanda and I are catching a 6:15 a.m. flight to Chicago tomorrow. We'll spend an exciting, frigid two nights in the land of Obama and Oprah, staying at the Hyatt Regency on the Magnificent Mile.

Then we're "heading home" to Leo, Indiana.

I'm not sure what resources I'll have in this remote part of the country, but I've been mentally preparing for scarcity by playing "Oregon Trail."

I'll try to get online or blog via telegram whenever possible to update you all on the good times, but this is my last post from Seattle until the end of the month.

Happy holidays and safe travels, everyone!
