Not Fun

Driving through the Chicago suburbs to Wisconsin is not fun. The traffic is terrible.

The tolls are expensive. Even though we paid for the privilege to drive the road, it was really rough.

It may be the fastest route (that is what our GPS says), we still had to stop for toll stations--costing 85 cents, $2.80, $17.00 and probably others I can't remember.

Finally, we made it to Wisconsin. After driving through Milwaukee, we saw the beautiful, neat farms we remember from when we lived here in the 1980s.

We are glad to be here.


  1. Haven't been through the Chicago area in recent years, seems they were always doing some construction making traffic really crazy. We have an ez-pass for both vehicles, makes it a lot easier (no cheaper) going through the toll booths. If you like quirky places House on The Rocks in Spring Green WI is a great place for a rainy day.

  2. We stay away from the big city area's much we can and not only because of the toll fees....
