Blitz Weekend
I'm in Madison WI for the weekend, hanging out with a bunch of friends for their yearly Blitz reunion thingy. Fortunately, B has wifi and I brought my laptop, so I can geek occasionally. We're about to go walking around on State Street, to check out hats and toys and such. Should be a fun day, especially since the weather's so nice! Yayness.

We flew here, which was a nice change. In past years we've driven, and although it's allegedly a 7 hour drive it tends to take more like 9 -- what with traffic and such. It's usually pretty tiring, so we thought we'd give NWA a try. Pricier, of course, but much more relaxing. Plus, we get to spend more time here in WI instead of crammed in a car, and that's a Good Thing.

What happened to taking the ferry across?

It's probably almost as cheap to fly as to take the darn ferry.

Rennie, will you let me know next time you're coming to WI? I'd love to take a detour from Milwaukee and meet you!

Not for the cost but for the experience!

Something to try once anyway.

Not this little, black duck. The first ferry ride I took, I barfed and barfed. And it was only across the Mississippi. The broad part, but still, the Mississippi.

You need to try it long enough to get your sea legs!

Er river legs?

I'd love to meet you, that would be really cool! I'll definitely let you know next time I'm nearby. (:

I took that ferry a couple weeks ago. Left here around 12:30, got to the ferry dock around 3:45, ferry sailed at 4:45, got to Madison around 8pm. I suppose it's about the same amount of time as riding there, but the Chicagoland suckiness starts at the Michigan/Indiana border and lasts all the way to Wisconsin. The ferry was pleasant. But it also cost $90 for me and my bike, one way.

Sounds like a one time thing rather a regular way to get to Wisconsin.

It's funny you're in Madison...the bands I saw play on Tuesday were going there next; they might be playing tonight, even ::lol::
