Oh yeah. I have no desire to move to a state (California) that's in even worse financial shape than Illinois is.

I'm thinking northern New Mexico... maybe even Wyoming, Idaho... something like that. No big city, I've had enough "big city" to last me a lifetime. A small town without all of the crime, corruption and traffic that we have here. Taos comes to mind. Something like that.

You're not really going to leave Illinois are you Harry? If you do youknow that when elections come up that you can only vote ONCE!

Are you moving out west before the "snow flies" Harry, or are you going to stick around and enjoy another cold, blustery, and snow filled Chicagoland winter?

Mark and Chris,you really need to come to some C.I.S.A.B club meetings.The next one is Dec 18th at Slot and Wings in Champaign,we could give the meeting after that in Springfield.



George...that would be great but right now I have nothing to get there with...would be great if I could send you a list of parts,etc. I need to repair my dads old models and have it passed around?

Born in Waukegan, lived my first 18 years in Zion. Joined the Marines after high school in 82. I've been back a few times since leaving, the last in '02, a trip to Great America (Six Flags) with my daughter. I don't miss the cold and the snow, it gets to cold here (just across the state line from Memphis) for me. Of all the things to miss, it's the pizza I miss most. Dee.


Believe it or not, we haven't gotten any snow yet, in fact I haven't even seen much for frost yet!

My family shares those same sentiments Dwayne! Whenever we get back to Waukegan the first stop is at Quonset for a pizza. We can only get chain pizza here in Charlotte or that NY style pizza that is close but not quite the same! I, too, graduated in '82 but didn't leave for good until 2005.
