The Chicago Boat, RV and Strictly Sail Show and All-Canada Show dominate Week 2 of the winter outdoors show season.

I plan to be at the opening of the Boat Show today and will try to file a recap later today. Then I expect to do a fun visit with my wife, kids and friends, a long family tradition, Friday night.
