Thanks for following our journey.
That must have been a challenge to launch your board. Looks like you had to jump the rail.
Though Illinois might not have the cleanest river in America, it is still a good thing that you went there to do the activity that you love! As we can see, the city was not able to retain its beauty in terms of its natural resources because the city was obviously developed already. But Illinois is still a city that has something to be proud of. By the way, I love the idea that you've been traveling just to do this stuff. You are willing to spend that much for the thing that you love!
