    Its upsetting that old military bases get left and run down like they do, you would figure our government would do something useful with all of that space!

    I stumbled across your blog this morning, and it’s *amazing* what we have in common.  we live in West Michigan, homeschool (5, in this case) kids, and we try to travel - it’s ending up to be from this location, branching out, as we can’t work remotely, but we LOVE to go and see and do.

    Oh, and I grew up 13 years as an Air Force Brat, with my ‘home’ base (K.I. Sawyer AFB) being closed in 1993.  We went up there on our U.P. trip… was it three years ago?  I cried.  Then talked 90mph as I told my family all about the closed and abandoned buildings of my childhood.  Where I went on my first date.  Where I danced at prom.  Where I got my first library card.  All abandoned buildings.  It was bittersweet.

    I will probably try to read through your entire blog soon… but tomorrow we leave for our big Illinois trip (!!).  Which - by the way - I’ve enjoyed your entries from the state.  Thank you!
