Taking the MM through Chi-town & How to feel like a Rock Star...

OK, kids, you too can follow these simple instructions on...

How to Feel Like a ROCK STAR!:

Step 1: Get a VW bus painted like the Mystery Machine.

Step 2: Drive it ANYWHERE!

It's amazing how much I feel like a Rock Star driving this Machine! People come out of the woodwork to get their picture taken with it when we park... drunk ladies (at 11 am at gas stations with piles of change) tell us that was the ORIGINAL from the movie, and we have a gold mine!...

I would like to say "Thanks" to all the people who have been so nice to us along the way so far. They have taken pics, and said kind words to us, especially to the people who drove along side us (one on each side, doing only 55 mph) holding up traffic to take pictures of your vehicle... and only BARELY missing getting into multi-car wrecks... (Sorry to all those who were obviously in a hurry... That is what you get with Rock Star status like ours)

But I must give a warm thanks to the lovely young lady in the silver car who took my pic (somewhere along I-355 outside Chicago), and was kind enough to show two of her best friends to me... this almost caused ME to veer out of my lane to meet them... Very nice, I must say :) :D

Did I tell you it had no heat? S6001419.jpg

Here's a list of things that went on:
1 Missing flower-painted hub cap... lost somewhere along the way (see map, find it, and send to me... ) Thanks in advance for whomever returns it. I'll buy you a drink!

Added the following: carpet for insulation, Febreeze for non-STANK scent, seat covers, and schnappes. (gotta love the name!)IMGP0172.jpg

1 LUCKY deer (or maybe WE were lucky the bus was not FAST) LeeAnn reminded me of the # R's but now we are on the # S's: Slow, steady, and South! (For those Northerners reading this... yes NEITHER of us like cold.. and neither do our phones!) Much like you may be afraid of hurricanes, we are afraid of the white COLD stuff! (WHY can i not feel my TOES!?)

Ok, enough of this one....too much Ice hole...
