Chicago is probably one of the few cities besides my homestate of California that I could ever imagine myself living for more than a year. A recent trip to Chicago really opened up my eyes in terms of what a metropolis next to Lake Michigan could offer. Team Madera clearly felt the same and booked a trip to Chicago before the weather ruined everything. Check out Jeff Dowhen’s insane gap to bank clearance and Tom Villareal’s deathly scary moves that make us shudder at what would have happened if he messed up bad. The versatile Madera crew may have been on a team trip but they sure meant business.
