An excellent show. Amazing exhibits. Grew up in Chicago and my father took me to many stamp shows. Loved the Palmer House. Enjoy!

Yep, I'm hitting the road at 8AM tomorrow. Should be there about noonish. Going to meet up with Bart (revcollector) in the afternoon and some dealers during setup to grab some things to browse through tomorrow night. Saturday evening, a bunch of us are getting together in my suite to have a revenue stamp trading/buying/selling party. Order in some Lou Malnati's deep dish pizza and have a nice relaxing evening rummaging through stamps.

Should be fun.

And much fun was had by all...

Just got home about 3 hours ago. Wallet empty, but satchel full. Friday night was great fun, with revenue trading/buying/selling going on until after 11pm, and then two of us reconvening Saturday morning to continue.

I got a chance to put faces to several names.

Images of all sorts of revenue goodies to come...
