    Present.

    From Mount Prospect also. It's not that bad of a town. :p What school do you go to, Vito? That name sounds so familiar. :p

    Nashville, TN, right? I love it there. BEAUTIFUL!

    I'm stuck in Romeoville right now, which kind of sucks. My family comes from Bucktown/Logan Square but moved out when I was young. :confused: My prerogative is to get back in within 18 months. I can see how someone can hate the state, as there isn't much within 40 miles in any direction from Chicago. (imho).

    Yes, there is one. Google Earth it. 50 miles east of STL.

    And why does it give you the heeby jeeby's? E. STL should for sure.

    The thought of vast nothingness that is called the 'great plains' creeps me out. Whenever I drive down I-57 to get to New Orleans, I sometimes forget I am in my home state of Illinois. I'm so used to urbanized life, that country life freaks me out. It's hard to imagine not being able to choose within 3-4 malls within 20 min. of each other. Or, living in a town of 5000. Creepy stuff!

    IL is nowhere near the Great Plains.:confused: You still have the Ozarks to go through to get there.;)

    Polo is a town of 2000.

    Our closest real mall is 45 miles away. (There is a small one 14 miles away with many shuttered storefronts.) The closest Apple store is 90 miles away.

    We don't lock our cars when parked, or even our front doors. I don't know where our house keys are.

    Our kids are safe on the streets.

    Small town living is really great.:)

    I agree. I've gotten tired of the city life.

    Chicago. I love it. Possibly going to Berlin, Germany in the Spring. If I do go- I may not be back. ;)

    I'm not from Illinois, but I got stuck in Marion, IL for two days when our vehicle broke down. It was cool though, the guy from the dealer where our vehicle was being fixed drove us around. to the mall, hotel for the night, etc. unplanned vacation ;)

    Rockford, IL here.

    I just got a call at work and the salesmen pronounced Illinois "Illi-Noise."

    Don't you hate that?
