    Nice to know not everyone considers Indiana a "flyover" state. Chose the
    location as a sanity check as I'm very familiar with the terrain.
    When escorting my mother to northern Jersey via for the holidays, I
    always enjoyed the ice formations on Lake Michigan between Chicago and
    South Bend.
    For many years we would pop into Chicago from West Lafayette, IN by
    small private aircraft. That is until Mayor Daley ripped up Meigs Field
    in the middle of the night without notice, leaving private aircraft
    parked there stranded.
    Relevant to navigation, the waters around the former Meigs
    Field/Northerly Island remained restricted on charts a long time after
    the runway destruction. I assume it was to keeps masts away from
    aircraft prior to 2002. and have not checked the status lately, but
    always wondered about that as Burnham Harbor was tucked in between the
    runway and the sore. Not at all clear how a sailboat could exit the
    harbor without crossing the south end of the runway. Any input on that?
