Springtime in the Chi.

5 05 2009

It’s getting warm, it’s getting nice, it’s a double-edged sword.

It’s starting to get really nice outside, and that brings some awesome stuff in Chicago and it’s surrounding suburbs.

  • Playing pick-up basketball in the park
  • Women in those short-shorts and skimpy tops
  • Random outdoor fun
  • Car-Season
  • Bike-Season
  • Hot mom’s

Not-so awesome stuff during spring.

Spring>Winter… especially when winter has lasted for 7 months.

NOTFWD.com’s first meet ’09

27 04 2009

It was crazy. Chicago’s bi-polar weather struck that day. The day before was glorious, 80 degrees, sunny, beautiful. The day of the meet… Gloomy, 37 degrees, thunderstorms. The weather didn’t matter, we had to meet up. The cabin fever over the winter had just become too much.

The turnout was great. Dare I say amazing considering the shit-tastic weather. We had about 15 cars at max, and most of us stayed for the drive (through the downpour), all the way to getting some eats afterwards.

The most exciting part of the meet was during the downpour, when you could only see 1 car ahead of you, and barely a car behind you. You had to drive with instinct, with trust, and it was such a cool feeling. Your heart was pumping a bit, the windshield wipers at max, that right foot working in cooperation with your left, and your hands, both shifting and steering.

I have to say that it was one of the best cruises I’d ever been on… or maybe that’s just the cabin fever talking.
