So we made it! It was surreal arriving into Champaign a few days ago and being greeted at the Alumni center by friends and family.  After spending a day on campus where I have lived the majority of the past few years I was sad to have to leave, but excited to make my way to Chicago.

On the way to Chicago we stayed in Homewood, IL for a night.  I had a strange feeling being so close to home in the southwest suburbs for a night, and an even stranger feeling riding into the skyline the next day.  It seems like just yesterday that we were in New York seeing Pitbull at a 7 AM concert, or even on the train to New York City from Union Station.  The experience has gone by so quickly so far, yet has also seemed like it has lasted a lifetime.

I4K continues to amaze me everyday, and I am excited to see what the rest of the trip holds.  Starting Saturday we will be going only west into states I have never seen.  I cannot wait to see everything the west holds, and meet new people along the way.
