Lunch at a Bowling Alley - #55
We knocked another one off my list. Lunch and bowling at Old Orchard Lanes in Savoy. We also were reminded that we are not good bowlers.
Braggin Rights Game
We normally attend the Illinois - Missouri men’s basketball game in St. Louis right before Christmas. This year since we were going to be in New York we were lucky enough to watch it with members of the NYC Illini Club. Sadly, the game wasn’t as good as the company.

St. Louis lost to Nashville in a shootout... but it was still SO much fun.
I'm Michael Smith and this website is simply documentation of our travels over the course of 500 days. We are very lucky. We went bowling ... and some other stuff.
