    Foreigner needs advice about IMTS and Chicago

    Could stay in Milwaukee and take the train down in the morning. Milwaukee is a great place to be!!! Stay downtown and just walk to the train station. A ton of people take trips up from Chicago to Milwaukee because it is cheaper and equally fun. It is an hour train ride and 25$(I think) I've...

    Seattle area manufacturing?

    I won't disagree with that.... The whole "business owner" mind never goes away. You can always network or make a few dollars during the day, and go out at night. This would be a more common travel like maybe once a month.
