I’m Baaack

4 days and 1400 miles later I’m back in Minneapolis, thus concluding my 2005 Spring Break. My journeys took me to Madison, Dayton, and Chicago, for purposes of hanging out with friends and vistiting the Wright-Patterson Air Force Museum (which had been on my todo list for many years). I did manage to take a few pics; they’re here.

EDIT 3: I didn’t get the Google jobs.
