Now that the dates are set let's get moving.
First order of business, where to stay. I will need input from the local guys and people who have attended before.
Same here , I would like to get some reservations going. I have been looking at some reviews :
Knights Inn - Hell NO
Best Western "Joliet" - Mixed reviewa 50/50
Wingate "joliet" - Mixed more positive than negative
Best Budget Inn ? didn't see any reviews
a few guys got there early last year and got a good campout spots, I say we all tent it out

edit that: I got a decent hotel room last year and would be willing to rent out some floor space if I do it again
I will be driving 12-15 hrs, I want a hotel room
there are some seedy hotels in the area, ill look up where we stayed
There are two major highways running through the area. IIRC, it's the ones near 55 that are nicer. The ones near 80 tended to be sketchier. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
anything on riverboat drive is good. the area with the Holiday Inn and Red Roof are not bad during the day, but if you like to see hookers and drug deals go down in the evening then that is the spot for you.
Heros restaruant is near the riverboat drive hotel. Fairfield / Hampton / anything over there is fine.

Do you know anything about the Manor motel in Channahon ?
I have stayed at both the Hampton Inn I-55 and the Motel 6 I-55. They are right next to each other and right next to a mall with a Tilted Kilts. They're also both what you would expect from their brand. The Hampton Inn costs more, but includes a pool and hot tub and breakfast with waffles. The Motel 6 is a Motel 6, but it is priced like a Motel 6. I know there is also a Holiday Inn Express in that area and I think there are a couple others. I haven't stayed at any of them, though. This area is about a 30 minute drive to/from CPX. I will probably be staying at the HIExpress this year, as I have run out of points for the Hampton Inn and still have plenty of Priority Club points.
Who all has made reservations already and where ?
I haven't, but I want to get this locked down quickly.
I stayed at the hamton inn on i 80last year and it was nice.
Are you really going or just posting?
I thought we were staying with Beemer?
We should go to the place we stayed at Shatnerball, where mango snake crawled everywhere...
