I'll be having anyone who wants to participate visiting my house on Friday afternoon, the day after Thanksgiving. If you are interested in coming, you can come any time between 2pm and 8pm: There should be somewhere here any time between then. If you're planning on coming, please give my cell phone a call: 217-721-4621. If you have any questions, please also feel free to call. All are welcome! Feel free to bring yourself, friends, whatever. Food and ideas for what to do a plus. This is a gathering to meet family and friends, so bring yours. Kids also welcome: we've got 2 mischevous ones ourselves, so we're well prepared for what trouble they can cause.
For the record, for those of you who aren't aware, I'm in Illinois. My trip to get here was hell, but all are safe and sound. The area is the West Chicago Suburbs, halfway between Aurora and Elgin. (I forget I have some people who read this who dont' know me well.) Even if I've never met you, again, feel free to come! :)
For more information, including directions, see the informational page. Do not hesitate to call, IM, or contact me in any other way.
Edited to add: Since crschmidt.net appears to have been foiled by kittens, directions to get here from 64 and Randall: Take Randall north about 1 mile to the top of the hill. Turn right at the light (RedHaw Lane) and take your first left (Hawthorn Dr.) The house is the first house on the right (3n751). Again, if you need help, just call my cell.
