ChiBears15 is alive and well at last check. He and other members of The Contingent communicate frequently via email and text. Most of his Roadfood related postings had been going to Instagram long before this dreadful “upgrade”. I think, like so many others, he was frustrated with the photo posting limitations here. That led to his transition to Instagram more than a year ago, or more. When the changes happened here, that sealed the deal.
We met up with him regularly here in the Chicago area up until the shelter in place order. Naturally we’re all champing at the bit to get back together, but frankly, there’s no place to go right now.
