You went to one of the most laid back and friendly parts there is.
Granted, you still had to come in from Chicago or St Louis...
Or does Hillsboro have an airport?
Philadelphia to Chicago by plane.
I was escorted from Chicago Airport by Car to Hillsboro by a Member of your Department of Defense and Former US Marine...actually
let me say the 5 hours I spent with him (apart from the car when we got back in from our motorway stop) was so much nicer then the five mins I spent with the Customs Official in Philadelphia...I had wondered why they needed to remind people on little plagues that it is a felloney offense (whatever that means, but it sounded painful so I assumed it was uber bad) to assult a customs official
When I left the booth I could see why such a sign was called for
btw...I only visit the nice parts of any country, and only associate with the very best that country has to offer
