HOTELS

These are the closest hotels to me check the link below. The ones closest to Crown Point, I have not checked out. I know that the ones further north (about 8 miles) are much better and I prefer the Munster location of Hampton Inn although it is a small hike to get to me from there.

I'll drive by the closer ones sometime this week and see how nice they are and report back.

Not at all big dog, hence the smiles and winks.

Thank you for the nice comment.

About 1:30 am, 11.5 hours into the drive and fighting sleep, I remember thinking, "what the f*ck am doing this for?". Now, every time I turn it on, the answer is quite obvious .

Plans are made! Getting into Midway (is that Midway between heaven and hell?; I used to live up in Streamwood, IL and MDW 18 years ago was not the place to be ) at 12:05 Friday afternoon!

Now, hotel.

LOL! No, I didn't yet so I will take a look tomorrow on my way home from work ok? I wish I had room to put all of you guys up.

On a good note though, maybe MP or one of the other guys might want to shack up with you to split costs? Unless of course you'd rather be alone.

Hey Cliff,

There are also a few hotels in Merrillville, which is only about 20 minutes from your house. Here is the link.

Hey Cliffy,

Bad news, I won't be able to attend. I've been really sick for the last three weeks and have missed all of it from work. I will not be able to take any more time off once I get back. I really wanted to make this function too, but, hope to be there in spirit!

Cliff,
I picked up another Glock this week. Glock 30 .45 ACP. I can bring it by. Now I have a Glock 17 9mm, Glock 27 .40 S&W (wifes gun) and my Glock 30 for my concealed carry. I should have my concealed carry permit in time for your meet. Talk about some guns!!!

Dude, DEFINITELY bring them with! I would love to check them out. Might give me a reason to get another one and hand the 9 to my wife for permanent ownership!

I'm glad your coming out big dog, the meet wouldn't be the same without you and Scott!

Just got done updating my PS3 to the latest firmware and it's nice to not have ANY black crush anymore. I watched a bit of Apocalypto tonight and also picked up the Matrix collection on HD DVD as well as Smokey and the Bandit.

Matrix and Apocalypto are STELLAR discs. Didn't get a chance to fire up SATB.

I'm up to 77 discs now BD and HD DVD combined. How many have you picked up so far?

Ahh so you got the Matrix collection, what do you think of the added features? My HD count is pretty close to your numbers. I slowed down on purchases when I sold the G90 though. When the RS1 gets here I'll start buying again.

I only watched a bit of the first movie last night. This weekend I'll spend some time wearing my tubes.

I'm going to update the hotel info after dinner. I want to check to see if the local lake 5 minutes from my house has cottages for rent. Maybe some of you might want to go in together if so?

Yo Cliffy;

Are there any bed and breakfasts nearby? Is there a local Web Site, with links to a bunch of them?

I found one big dog but it's all the way down in Lowell which is a further drive than Scherrerville. This hotel is the closest to me:

http://www.bestwesternindiana.com/ho...rossroads-inn/

It's about 8 miles from my house but it's pretty much a straight shot. I guess what we'll have to do if the drunkards get to drunk is have a designated driver to drop off everyone to their rooms.

There is a BUNCH of hotels in Merrillville. It's about 15 minutes from my house and there is TONS of shopping over there as well. Both locations have EXCELLENT restaurants nearby.

Here is another one in Cedar Lake that is REALLY close to me. I'm going to have to drive by it today to see how nice it is.

Cool. That's where I'm booked. FYI, I booked my room one week ago (5/20/07) and got the last spot at the time. But it wouldn't hurt to call them from time to time and check availability. Maybe some folks will cancel between now and June 23rd. But as of mid-May, there were no slots available there.
