I see the midwest is pretty broadly defined...so how many of us are here, and which state?

I'm here in the middle of nowhere(or Illinois depending upon how one spells it), otherwise known as Normal.

just north of Milwaukee WI

Yep, the "midwest" is huge and is often redefined. Here it appears to be 13 states big, that's huge. I think there's a few others from this micro-region.

Chicago area

I was starting to get tired of putting in all my miles on a trainer, until I got #&**%$!!)&%$ sick. Been off the bike for two weeks now. I must have some of that bird flu or some sort of plague. I'll never complain of "trainer burn out" again.

The last couple days of 28-32F weather have dried out the streets so it was pretty good riding this morning. The <a href=http://forums.consumerreview.com/[email protected]@.efe3ab9>Performance booties</a> worked out too...

What is the defintion of the midwest? Who are we trying to fool the US doesn't stop at the Mississippi anymore. We are the mideast. On second thought I like the sound of midwest.

...we spell Illinois with three letters...F.I.B. I won't elaborate and no offense intended just my upbringing coming through. I don't have it any better being stuck in the middle of Iowa (des moines). I can't wait to move back north (Wisconsin).

Ahhh, yeah. F.I.B's. I used to work for a company with facilities in Wisconsin and I remember them (jokingly) referring to us that way. Thanks for that chuckle from the past.
