My suitcases stand ready. Took a little bit of wrestling, but I got everything in.

The Strangest Thing at the Summit award goes to the television screens built in to the bathroom mirrors at the Hyatt. So very strange, I just had to grab a photo.

The Take-One-For-The-Team award goes to Lorie Meyer, pictured here with the über talented Rich Maggiani. Lorie will have to tell the story herself, but as I understand it, she sustained a bone break during the Honors Banquet without leaving the field of battle. Go Lorie!

Love these mobile boarding passes. Very convenient. And good for the environment, too. Kudos, United!

This is the photo I texted home to let the DillMen know I had boarded. We like photos at my house more than reading. My new friend in the seat beside me took this picture. Thanks, Mr. Stranger, man.

Here we are at the gate, waiting to take off from O'Hare. I am sitting close to the tail.

Very soon, we were underway. This is a shot out the window (I got a window seat, see above) of the John Hancock building and Lake Michigan.

So as my excellent #STC12 Adventure draws to a close, I look forward to expense reports, jet lag, photo uploading, and being hideously behind at work. It has been all worth it.
I learned so much. I saw so much. I shared so much.
And now I look forward to #STC13!
