The Gauntlet - Part Deux

Made it! Here's a tip from yer ol' Uncle Johnny. . .Lake Shore Drive is your friend. That and, mini-vans are much more nimble at high speeds than one would expect!

Approaching downtown in the express lanes



Navy Pier



Sailboats off of Lake Shore Drive

Glad to see you made it back safely! What are you using to take your digital images? That clarity isn't from your phone, is it?

I am a minivan aficionado so I know where you're coming from. Lots of room, god safety ratings and a LOT better gas mileage than your standard SUV.

My sweet home... *smile*
I hate the skyway, though. I always go 90/94 - via 294 through the dread Borman-under-construction.

It's been a long time since I saw those sites. Can't say I miss them though.

Has the Aquarium changed much over the years or haven't you visited it lately?

I'll take the heat and threat of Hurricanes before I'll ever want to see snow and freezing cold again.

Yes, its a great place too visit since I don't live there anymore.

God Bless.

You had some nice weather there. Last year when I went up there to the navy pier area it was raining and fog the whole time.

Stan - A Canon PowerShot A75

Robert - I still prefer low-slung and sleek, but no complaints here either.

Sew - I LOVE the Skyway! 90-94 was what I had to detour around. That and an overturned tanker truck that leaked oodles of cooking oil. . .

Anon - I'm envious!

Parson - We're going back (just the two of us) for a cruise on the lake in early August. Hope it's as good then!

It's the low part that bothers me. I like to see over traffic when I can.

Robert - I'm the same way. But it always seems to happen no matter what I'm driving...

Parson - Just as soon as I get a good night's sleep, I'm headed over to kick yer ass! ;)
