Costco Shopping – November 7, 2018

49th Costco shopping in 2018 – $75.41 (today) / $3276.51 (this year)

Rental car for the last day of my trip.

At 7AM I picked up the car at the Down Town Battle Creek, Michigan.

Around 9:30AM, I arrived at Michael Jackson’s childhood house in Gary Indiana.  The entire house was fenced in.  I stood by at the house alone and cried. I was emotional.

Rental car was $75.41, but I drove through two toll roads.  I stopped at the first toll gate and I was completely puzzled.  I didn’t know what to do, because there was no human at the gate.  Then the toll gate communicated with my car and the gate was opened for me.  I am pretty sure I will be charged with that service.  On the second toll road, I went to the correct gate where I could pay with cash.

I ate my last meal of the trip in Chicago.  I went to Portillo’s for a Chicago style hot dog. I like Chicago style hot dog very much.  It was cute that I tried Deep Dish Pizza, but I didn’t like Deep Dish Pizza that much.  I like New York style better – and good old Costco style.

I dropped off my rental car at Chicago Midway Airport – They have a nice system going on that it was not that confusing to return my car.  I was nervous, but I followed signs all the way to parking garage. I told people “I am a first timer” – and people were kind.

Good times.
