Default Hey Chi-towners!

I might be heading down to Chicagoland for the summer! I just got a job offer for a summer internship. I interviewed down there yesterday and all I gotta say is that tollway has some crazy traffic - little different than the country roads...
I might have to meet up with you guys though if I take the offer.

i went right by O'hare on 90. Yeah I'm sure it gets worse, don't get me wrong haha. It makes the beltline in Madison seem like nothin though. I'll get used to it I'm sure.
