You Outta Be In Pictures!

Thursday, September 27: Chicago, IL-4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Miles: 45
Lot: Warren Park

This morning I walked to a Starbucks about a mile away from the lot. On the way I passed through a sketchy neighborhood. Some guy who was high on more than life was stumbling around in front of me.
All of a sudden he stopped in the middle of the small sidewalk, and from behind it appeared that he was about to urinate.
I had to squeeze by him, and for that brief second I was afraid he was going to wash my shoes for me, or stick a shank in my side.
As soon as I passed by he came out of his stupor and resumed his morning stumble.

I heard that the police had to break up a fight in the preferred seating section during the first Intermission. Classy!
The second audience was fantastic; they must have channeled all of their fighting anger into laughter and applause!

Sam, Ryan's former partner, came to visit during the second show. Unfortunately we didn't have a ton of time to visit because we had to move to the next town after work.

Before I left the lot in Chicago, I visited with Tim Gault, who caught the second performance.
My visiting put me a bit behind schedule; the tent was down and almost packed away by the time I finally got rolling.

Luckily it was an easy 10 mile jump to Wilmette, the next town. After getting parked, Ryan and I unwound for the evening and watched an episode of Family Guy. It was Halloween themed, so I guess it loosely fits into our "Scare-athon"....
