    For the vast majority of people that aren’t familiar with the Munster / Highland, IN area, it is located at approximately South 185th St. on the Indiana-Illinois border. The Chicago city limit is South 135th St. Thats 50 city blocks, which equals about 6 miles. Point is the area is not “rural” at all. It has high population density with a lot of heavy industry in the area. For Mr. Nuttermcbutter, the closest motel is the Hampton Inn in Munster. It has a real nice bar in the same parking lot as the hotel for the pre or post game activities. I wouldn’t worry about the designated driving thing that much either. I go out in the area alot. There are two solid cab companies that can’t wait for Dark Lord Day to roll around every year. It is pretty much a shuttle service for them. I just wouldn’t want anyone to pass up the opportunity to visit the area because of the stigma that it could be “rural”. Chicago is an easy day trip from the area if you wanted to hit two birds with one stone.

    It’s amazing how short the lines can be when thousands of people couldn’t get tickets!!

    Thanks for the recap, it sounded like a kick ass time. I will hopefully make it there next year. Tough task will be finding someone to drive and not actually drink. Are there any motels around FFF?
