Greetings from Illinois!
« on: March 23, 2018, 01:37:34 PM »

Hello! I'm a roadgeeker, I've been lurking on the forums under a guest account for years now, but never actually made an account til now. Really excited to join the forum!

I'm into roadgeeking and also am an avid lover of flying in airplanes as well. So I'm a rather experienced traveler, worldwide on flights and on roadgeeking as well.

I reside in Illinois and I'm a teenager, but I know my interstates quite well.

Hope you guys don't mind me joining in on the roadgeeking fun!

Oh good, more of us from FIB-istan.  :cool:

I am SO glad I'm not the only person who calls it FIB-istan...though I prefer to call it "FIBtopia."  My buddy from Ohio christened my car as "the FIBcopter" during a road trip a few years back.  :rofl:

Anyways, welcome from your fellow FIB brethren  :bigass:

...FIB?

It's a reference by Wisconsinites (aka Cheeseheads) to how people from Illinois, mainly Chicagoans, drive (and act when on vacation up north).

The F does not stand for Friendly.
