I'm going this year with my mum. We're not staying in a hotel because Rosemont is a little over half an hour away. Depending on if I can get it done in time, I may be in suit. (Not a very good one id you ask me :P )

It's pretty much right across the highway from O'Hare. It looks like there are quite a few transit stations not far away from the hotel (including what appears to be a Greyhound station). I also know that Megabus serves Chicago in general, and being so close to the airport, I would think there would be a station not far. Megabus is known to be pretty reasonably priced.

That's up to you to decide.  If you're generally a good planner and organizer, have gone through the process of getting a passport, and have a sufficient proficiency in street smarts, I imagine that you'd be OK.  If you're concerned, you could always try a European furry con first.

Well, I think you should go :P

But yeah, yeah, it is up to what you're comfortable with. Being an international trip for you, you'll definitely want to make sure you've got things planned well. Traveling actually isn't that bad. Even alone. Just have to make sure you're set to go to the right destination and on the right day, pretty much. And once you've traveled alone once, it won't feel like a huge deal at all to do it again in the future.

Back in high school, the first trip I ever took was an international trip. Fortunately it was with a group from school, but still first time on a plane and I was going across the Atlantic was a big deal for me. Now, I've done a decent amount of traveling alone for work stuff. Generally, if you just approach it with confidence, it'll work out.

I'll be there as usual.  I'll be in artists alley, so once again I may just do my run-by hello if/when there's a meetup.

Ya say that every year and never make it to pizza with us ;)! Well hey, time will tell :)

 :D I know, I'm such a party pooper.  ;) 

Being in artists alley I can't leave my table for an extended amount of time lest they take it away for lack of presence.  If the meetup is held after AA hours (or even right before it closes) I'd be able to get to it. 

Or maybe this year I'll just show up ninja-style and surprise you all!  BWAHAHAHAHA!

Well my manager who does schedules was in good mood when asked for her to review and made sound like no biggie for me to take off. If not who wants to help break my arm a week prior so i can?

I want to go sooooo badly :( but my dad said that I have to wait another year so he doesn't have to walk around with me and measlehound... Which according to the website he'd have to do as I won't be 16 at the time of the convention... But he said that I definatly can go next year... I'm saddened  :(
