If we're meeting at 11, I'll be leaving here at about 7am, so I may be a LITTLE early. You just never know about the traffic and everything, so I'm going to give myself a little extra time just in case. But I'll definately try to be in the lobby at 11am.

Earlier the better. I should be out of bed by 9:am since my time zone is 3 hours behind yours.

I'm really looking forward to it.

The only downside is that I won't have my Bonne with me. :(

Actually, its nice that you mention the time zone difference. Because I think Chicago is 1hr behind my time zone. Meaning if its 8am here its 7am there...I think. So maybe I don't have to leave that early. Anyone want to verify the time difference?

Oh, that'* good, so I'm only 2 hours behind Chicago time.

I'm impressed that dbtk2 is going to drive 4 hours and one time zone to be there.
Hey and it will only really take him 3 hours......well maybe 2 1/2 if things go well

Drive safe and don't take any unnessary chances. I would feel really bad if you didn't make it for obvious reasons.

Well, that depends on if I drive the same speed or not. I think I could probably make up at least an hour of that if I wanted to...after all, my tires are rated for 130mph.

Well, I am thinking I will leave here at 8:00. That should be 7:00 there, giving me a very nice time cushion of 4 hours to get there. I'm giving myself lots of time so I don't take any "unnecessary chances" as you mentioned above. I don't want to be in a hurry and make stupid mistakes. Don't need to get any tickets either...don't have lots of $$$, and don't really need it on my driving record.
