Holy moly! I just googled Wheaton to Vernon Hills and it says it’s over an hour away in light traffic. Mrs. Redhawk is balking at that. :-(

I don't blame her...that would be a crazy drive.
Bill - any idea of towns that would be a good middle ground between your area and Vernon Hills? I could search on some BYOB places if there were a couple towns in mind.
