Robb & Elissa-Haven't you been to KCI?? It totally SUCKS and has next to nothing and is the most plain and nondescript airport evar!

Well, yeah, that's expected from a crappy, low-volume midwest airport - not a place like LAX which is one of the biggest, busiest airports on earth. LAX sucks.

Since I have two IKEAs within a good hour's drive from my home, I am continually jaded about the place. Rarely go there, if ever.

 

But then....

 

TPR always makes an IKEA visit more..... interesting, lol.

 

And FUN!!!

 

Great start-up to this tour, Robb.

And HOW MANY Credits does the KTums have, now?

Those captions from IKEA were the funniest I have seen in a long time!

 

I agree.

 

Also, any Indy reference automatically makes the trip report awesome.

I'm figuring she'll pass me sometime in 2012.

Yeah, I should have been more specific. The worst "major" airport in the world.

It looks like it is off a good start!

 

What's the date for Wisconsin Dells? Couple friends and I are hitting the Dells the day after SFGAm with TPR on the 12th. Perhaps I will finally reach to my #100th credit somewhere in the Dells?

 

Can't wait to see everyone on the August 13th!
