    Hi all. I Have been a member for a while but finally feel comfortable putting myself out there. I attended the chicago seminars in October. After that I was hooked. I hope to learn more about this excellent hobby/addiction. I need to travel to warm places. Living in Chicago in the winter is brutal!!

    It's not that brutal here. Just a little chilly.

    Welcome to Milepoint!

    I actually live in the suburbs. Both of my children live in the city so I am in the city frequently. I'm usually looking for some new restaurant to try :)

    Down State here, not Chicago. The best part of Chicago, in the Winter is through ORD to OGG in February.
    Do some posting in teh Box, and look at the different boards here on MP, and you'll be a daily (sometimes all day) visitor here.

    I am headed to OGG next week! Looks like we have the same idea. I can't wait to see the sun again.

    Welcome. Winter can be tough in the Winter. I recently moved to MCI but did live in the STL area. My work took me to St. Charles, IL. and Schaumburg a lot. We also had a office downtown. Nothing like walking through a blizzard to the Amtrak station at -7 degrees. Yikes.
    Stay warm my friends.

    Let me guess. That was when Arthur Anderson/Accenture had the big training facility on Rt. 25 just north of 64?
