Today we drove down to Lake Geneva, a lake near the Illinois border, and had a ride on the mail boat. You might have seen this on TV - it's been on news and travel programs. Click here to see one from NBC Nightly News.
This is one of the few places where mail is still delivered by boat. The mail boat goes ...
