Mile 64

Is that 134 miles round trip? Speaking of polka, you must get some stuff from the "Boys From Illinois" ("Illinois" rhymes with "boys".)House band at the Baby Doll Polka Club in Cicero, Ill. in the '70s. Chicago's own Channel 32 carried a live broadcast every Saturday nite. So anyway, ever walk out the office door, blink, and you're suddenly in your driveway? If so, is it UFOs above your car and a corresponding compression of the spacetime continuum, or merely corporate-inspired Zen? And is there a difference between the two?

Yes, 134 round trip. Chicagoland is the next best thing to Warsaw. Channel 44 had a great polka show, too, right before the wrestling hour. There's no way to autopilot 67 miles. Sometimes you can do 14 or so, but no more than that.

Warsaw - home of Krakus canned hams coated in gelatin. Cut into bite-sized chunks, toss in a ziploc, savor as you drive. It's a good 8 miles worth of autopilot bliss.
