Well, there's that dream that I have. No, not a daydream or wishful thought; literally a dream, a recurring dream that I've had since about 8th grade. In that dream, I pack up everything I have in whatever car I had at the time of the dream, and head for Wisconsin.

The really odd thing is that I never actually get there. Typically I wake up somtime about when I get to Omaha.

The even odder thing is that I have no idea why I would want to go to Wisconsin -- no family ties, no real knowledge about the place except that Lambeau Field is there, nothing at all except this recurring dream.

On a more realistic note, I like the Texas options, especially Corpus and Galveston -- not too far to drive, and a possible chance of linking up with old friends. Florida might be nice, but it's an awful long way to tow a boat.
