Chris Reese hosts the “My Move” segment with guest Mike Louban
Chris talks with Mike Louban, a Madison resident who recently moved into the city from Oregon. Mike moved in the middle of January, so he was a little nervous about the famous Madison winter, but says that he and his family love the city. Mike’s children were able to connect to the community through sports and exploring places in the community, like the lakes and the farmer’s market. He said the adjustment was not a hard one, although there have been a few comical things he has learned since moving to Madison. In Oregon, Mike never had to pump his own gas, as it’s illegal to do so there, so he said it took a few weeks to adjust to a new system. He would pull up to a gas pump and wait for someone to fill up his car, then realized he was waiting for something that was never going to happen. His family loves biking around the lakes, then stopping at Babcock Hall for ice cream, as well as the farmer’s market. The best thing about Madison according to Mike? The fact that you can do big-city things without the hassle of living in a big city!
