Glad to hear that. I sometimes fear of post-visit letdowns. While we're here, any takers to grab me at the airport in Chicago and take me to the BobD Bus? I am looking for a midday arrival on the 29th or 30th or 2nd.

Can't we organize some sort of IAC Bus transfer system? If we can line up enough Bus drivers in the right places, we can get Colin from wherever he is to Chicago without one airport security scan!

I'll volunteer to pick him up at the Ohio/PA line and get him to Cleveland at least, and maybe all the way to Toledo! :cyclopsani:

It would be non-stop. He'd have to open the sliding door and jump to the next bus, all the while doing 60-70mph on the highway!

This is all I can think of...

Colin would be Neal Page (Steve Martin role) and the rest of us would be Del Griffith (John Candy role).
