Here in Wisconsin we call people from Illinois FIBs (******* Illinois bastards). Also your roads suck. Welcome.

Welcome neighbor.

I prefer Illinois roads just because Wisconsin drivers are idiots.. I fit in better down there.

Eh, I wasn't of driving age when I lived in IL so I can't comment on their driving. I do use my horn a lot up here, though. Actually I have nothing against people from IL, but he asked to be hazed.

Ha, I just read the OP's location. I used to live like 6 miles from there. It was mostly corn fields around Scott AFB. The Mid America airport (was new when I was there) ever get any major traffic?

A midwest meet would be awesome. I think I'll finally have boost in the next couple months (begi-s on order).

You have to get used to driving in IL, thats for sure. When I first started comuting daily down past Schaumburg a couple of years ago, I hated Illinois drivers. By the time I was done (13/mo later), I hated Wisconsin drivers. Go figure.

Is Beard's Tavern still open? Or how about the Idle Hour? - A couple of local dives I wasted portions of my youth in. (Not to mention a couple of "altercations"...)

Welcome aboard.
