In the middle of January on a Sunday afternoon I set out on my mission to obtain a new winter jacket. It was a cold, snowy day in Dekalb, Illinois but I had my heart set on getting this new jacket before the new semester started.

The journey started by asking a new friend named Sam to accompany me on this quest. I knew he had a car and that was a vital part of the quest because this journey would not be able to happen on foot. Sam accepted my request for him to accompany me and we set off on my quest.
