Here it is just about a week from my trip and there is still so much to be done. I wanted to start this Blog off by thanking so many that have made this trip possible! But first let me tell you about the trip, so that you all know why and where I will be and why it is so important and life changing for me to take this journey. Most of you know that this year has been a struggle for me in regards to my health. I have explained to my close family and friends that one of the driving factors for me to go on this journey is that I know I have a condition that might keep me for doing this in the future. Saying, I’ll wait 3 years when my ... read more

Fighting Illini go the Arch for some college basketball. And not just SOME college basketball... we're in St. Louis for college basketball. Actually, right now, we ARE college basketball. Maybe it's because I'm from Illinois (the state and the school), but I can't remember a team that has attracted such a following like we have this year. Everywhere is orange. Everywhere it's about the Illini (save ESPN). Perhaps it has to do with the fact that it's our hundreth year of basketball. Or that we only lost one regular season game (screw you, OSU). Or maybe it's the Dee Brown infamous jersey pop that has put Illinois in the limelight. Whatever it is... I can't say that I ever thought I'd actually be here, at the Final Four, to see my team play in the national ... read more

We walked to the train station attempting to get a tour trip, but alas it is too late in the season. So we continued down to the Mighty Mississippi and the great arch. We went to the I-max and saw the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Great film. We boarded the tiny cubicle that would take us up to the top of the arch. Quite a view! We solved the mystery of the trains, and headed to the museum area. On our way back we stopped at Union Center and went to a couple breweries. ... read more

Three days spent in the Litchfield and Nokomis region of Illinois. Restful days spent on a farm, fishing for catfish in the lake, wandering the meadows full of Hereford Cattle . It almost felt like home. However after the three days it was time to move on and head southwards into our next state - Missouri. The home of Old Man River, that old man river from the song just keeps on rolling along. The Mississippi is the largest of all the river systems in the United States of America. The river flows entirely through the United States rising in Western Minnesota and meandering slowly for over 2500 miles until it reaches the sea. It was wider than I expected and was much more muddy too, it seemed to flow sluggishly and the water took on ... read more

Like anyone said, before heaven, one needs to go through hell. Or somekind of purgatory, where one can cleanse his/her sins. This was exactly what we had to experience driving down to St. Louis, Missouri from Ames, Iowa. With no direct major interstate or highway between the two, we tried to fit five guys in one sedan and politeness dissolved pretty quicky to achieve personal comfort. There were many fart bombs dropped, but nonetheless, we were bonding very quickly and had a blast. The famous landmark of St. Louis is the Gateway Arch. From what I've read, the Arch was completed in 1965, when the city decided to revitalize a rundown industrial area along the Mississippi River. As suggested by its name, St. Louis gateway arch symbolizes a connection between the eastern and western coasts of ... read more

...still in st.louis...stayed a little longer than what we originally thought, has treated us well. my brother lives in the heart of downtown, on the 6th floor overlooking a very happening street. randomly throughout the day, we'll open his windows and city watch. its definately entertaining to say the least. the art of parallel parking...not many people seem to have obtained this skill...its pretty effin funny. the meter maid...what a fearless woman, she doesn't play games...if you ever stop by this city and use meters, stay on top of them. and last but not least, its fun to just shout randomness out to those underneath you. even better if you break out into song. looking out of mickey's window...if you glance to the left, about two blocks away, you'll see a building called City Museum...and ... read more
