Does it count?

I spent about fourteen years in a town named "Danville" it's about one hundred forty miles south of Chi.

And I'm 25 miles South of him on the Illinois side and work right across the river in Rock Island.

For those of you trying to figure out how I can be in Illinois and be "South" of someone in Iowa the Mississippi flows due West through the Quad Cities. Really messes up visitors on directions because everyone "knows" the Mississippi flows South. I can drive North 20 miutes and hit the Mississippi and I can drive straight West 20 minutes and hit the Mississippi.

I am in green bay. Had cousins that use to live in libertyville when we were kids so we got to go to great america a few times. They have moved back to green bay, but one cousin still lives out there. I was also at the chicago auto show years ago for school trip, but I never peed in a sink there. Also got stuck in the airport in chicago two years ago coming back from a race in los vegas. Left vegas it was 70 and beautiful. Got stuck in chicago overnight because there was a blizzard.

little off subject

well technically its off subject because it is a car forum, but i hate it Im getting alot of work done to my car and i cant even start yet and its already fall damm body shop.. I have a hood and spoiler waiting in IN and i drove 700 miles round trip in one day to ohio to pick up all the interior tri, pieces, that are now sitting in my garage in my parking space... and the problem child is chilling curbside I hate seeing her outside when it rain I feel the rust getting worse... So she needs to get some new skin, hood and spoiler to go on, then the interior is all being replaced except for the wiring, custom leather seats, all new glass, and it all needs to be done before winter hit. I hope i have enuff time thanks for reading my rant.
