    This thread is for everyone to check in as they arrive to Chicago. Some started their travels today and many of us will continue throughout the week. Whether you are arriving by Tauntaun, speeder or public transport dressed as refugees, be safe. And may the Force be with you!

    Hopefully for us it will not be TaunTaun as we are expected to get hammered with snow starting on Wednesday at some point (Minneapolis)
    We will be driving in to Milwaukee Wed and then driving into Chicago early Thur morning.
    Safe Travel everyone and MTFBWY

    Just landed in Chicago. I was able to leave LaGuardia two hours early on an earlier flight, so that was a good start to this trip :). I’ll spend the rest of the day exploring Chicago and figuring out the best way to get to McCormick Place.
