I just returned to outside of Chicago from a rather disappointing January trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina. I did get off the island and had some very good Southern church experiences but I pretty much hate Hilton Head, SC. Also, Charleston, SC was very disappointing. Confederate history places are being downgraded and closed. The place seems to be populated by yuppies from Boston!
I did attend an excellent Southern college club sport hockey tournament in Savannah, GA and enjoyed conversing with honest Uber/Lyft drivers. Also, the Southern Arkansas gal that checked my bags at Hilton Head airport was THE best and she upgraded me to 1st class.
I got back to just outside Chicago, escaped the brutal arctic freeze ( I can handle extreme cold ).
