Google = 25 minutes

It doesn't really matter how far it is to me... I was just asking because I was curious. If anything, I'll just punch the address into the IDrive and have an estimated time there.

We are still meeting in downtown... correct? Like I said, I live in the loop, so meeting there and rolling out together would be sweet.

Awwwright...

Wait you live in the loop and don't know Northerly Island? formerly Migs Field? now Charter One Pavillion? Adler Planetarium?

please make sure one of these rings a bell. Or just type in 1750 Lynn White Drive into google and view the map.

I've never heard of it referred to as Northerly Island.

I need to get out more...

I work right by there too.. Northern Trust.. and went to College around there... DePaul, BLUE DEMONS! But yet, I never heard of anyone refer to it as Northerly Island... Am I the only one here who has never heard of it referred to this name? Either way, I'll be there. 10 am sharp... who's bringing breakfast?

Current situation is that if you want to do it, buy your vinly and bring it with you and some of the guys at the meet will help if you need it. Not sure that we have a "pro vinyl artist" coming though.

aFe intake couldnt of been too bad considering paul did it. im sure it was like watching a monkey hump a doorknob. but if an IT got it done, normal people should have no problem.

Actually...I had a little help from a car nut that I work with, but I got it down now so it should be a 30 minute thing.

So those who are going, do we have to have some type or special skill, so that we can help others with their DIY?

I'm not going to lie, I really don't know how to work on much... However, I'm a math genius, and can help anyone out with their math homework...

Not at all man. The only skill you have to have is having fun. There will be plenty of BS, some nice cars to look at, photos, fun, and learning about some DIY things. You don't even have to be doing any DIYs yourself if you don't want, you can just take in the knowledge from those around you.
