    What time do you think you will get here? Remember, traffic on I-55 starts getting backed up several miles before it crosses I-80. Traffic jams there are common, even at 7pm on a Wednesday it will be slow going from I-80 all the way to I-355.

    I'm not quite sure. As of now, we're planning to leave Thursday afternoon or evening and get to Chicago during the night. I figure if it's timed right, we can meet you guys right at 0955 or 1000.

    0955? What is that?

    See if you can get a room in the same hotel as Gary. It would be beneficial if we all went in one car because parking at the museum is like $10.

    I'm at the Red Roof Inn in Downers Grove. Pet friendly. Hey Gary (not me, obviously), would you have access to the Escalade for a trip downtown. I'm assuming that would fit everybody most comfortably.

    Or we can asscram 5 people into a Lincoln that barely holds 2.

    I have access to 2 full size vans if need be. It ain't a Cadillac but it gets the job done. Plus, I know they fit in the parking garage at the museum by 6 whole inches. I suppose we could also take the Brougham too. We don't have to drive through downtown, just Lake Shore Drive, and the parking garage has large spots and a special section for oversized vehicles. However, I'm down for a ride in an Escalade.

    News flash. My grandparents went to the museum today (they are members) and parking is now $16.

    Sorry, man, I use 24hr time format all day. 0955 is 9:55 AM. Instead of two sets of twelve hours, you have one set of 24 hours, numbered from 1-24. So, because 12 noon was the twelth hour, or 1200, 1 PM is the thirteenth hour, or 1300, so on and so forth. When you hit the 24th hour, it all resets, so midnight is 0000. See?

    Technical stuff aside, I'll see about getting that room at the same hotel with GD and let you know what happens. With parking being $16, I figure we can split that cost fairly easily. Still, that is outrageous. You can park at two garages I know all day in Atlanta for $5.50-$8.00.

    I was being sarcastic. I guess it doesn't work well over teh internetz. I use military time as well since that is what the registers at work use.

    We should just adopt military time altogether, it makes more sense.

    At least it's not $24 like the Hancock Center. (PS. Crown Vic Owner set a world record 11 mph up the ramp there)

    Depending on how many are going and if we can all fit in Gary's Escalade (does it have three rows?), we can split the parking and it won't be that much. Unfortunately, they can get away with charging an arm and a leg, but for a couple of bucks each, it's worth it.
