Indianapolis - Chicago  |  March 2008
I had a few trades to complete with Jay Piatek, and I decided to hand-deliver the items. That way I would get to see some of Dr. Piatek's truly awesome collection in person! It was definetely worth the trip!
On the way back to Toronto, I stopped in Chicago to check out the Field Museum. They had roughly 40 meteorites on display - the meteorite area is badly in need of some updating. Some of the dust bunnies in the displays were bigger than the meteorites! But all in all, it was also well worth the detour.
