Title: SWLA LPB travelogue
This was the best advertisement for our part of the state that I've ever seen. It was beautifully crafted, fun to watch, and entirely captivating, Anyone would want to visit here after seeing this video. I'm ordering a copy for our Chicago friends who are already enamoured of SWLA; lots of good ideas for the next time they come down.
