    Wish you luck but I never go within 200 miles of Chicago. You can always stop by for a warm cup of coffee or a brew at my little country town in Ohio though.

    Peace

    Nothin' wrong with Chicago Jimmy, its a great city.

    Never been to this show but been hearing all kinds of advertising for it. I may run over and check it out. I'll look for you MWC if I do.

    It's not so much the city of Chicago; it's the traffic around Chicago. I don't intentionally put myself in harm's way of idiots in cages. I confess that I may miss some things because of my aversion to city traffic, congestion, etc. and it's a longer way to go around but I've never been in a hurry anyway. Plus I much prefer the country side.

    Peace

    I'm with you Jimmy. I avoid all cities if I can. Too congested!!!

    Hell I would not hang near Philly if mu grand-kids could convince their parents to move...


    But if you can deal with it it will be a good show!

    Had a great time at the show Saturday. I think my wife had a better time.
    Her progressive bag was filled with a couple hundred $$ of new gear.
    Nice meeting you guys at your booths.....

    I totally agree with you guys about the chicago traffic. I will NOT go into chicago unless I absolutely have to. lucky for me, THIS particular show is in Rosemont. Which is just outside of chicago. much better traffic. Not as many a$$hole drivers.
