I flew out Friday, but have a wedding in Michigan over the weekend, so won't actually be in Indy until Tuesday.

I like to leave good and well in advance.  I came out here in early October 2016.

Started our drive from South Florida Saturday morning.  Stopping over in GA to see family a couple days and will be arriving in Indy on Monday evening.  We always stay Monday-Monday.

Does leaving my house on Monday to drive downtown to game count?

Yeah, this. I've pretty much been there in spirit for the last two weeks now. :)

I almost booked us to come in on Tuesday and decided not to because all our friends are coming in on Wednesday but now I wish I had just went ahead with Tuesday. Wait is killing me.

Same here. I was originally going to only take Weds-Fri off work, but ended up taking the whole week. Now I'm wishing I'd booked the hotel starting on Tuesday so we could do more Wednesday stuffs and generally feel less rushed.

Oh well, it saves money on kennels, hotel rooms, and food...  more cash for buying games, I guess?

We actually won't arrive in Indy until Wednesday. we have a 9 hour drive, so we're breaking it up. Stopping in Louisville Tuesday night, then it's only 2 hours to Indy on Wednesday morning. Honestly, I kind of wish we could have just left this past weekend, but my partner has to work today and tomorrow.

We are here! Miserable day of driving yesterday though. 

Belleville, il to Muskegon, mi to visit friends and family.

Muskegon to Indy.

Person driving(my daughter) then drive BACK toBelleville since she couldn't attend this year(New job).

Total drive time for her was 21 hours, total time overall 26 hours.

And all she wants is me to bring her back some dice.

Chicago is almost as close to Indianapolis as Cincinnati is.  Why didn't you just stop there?

Would have seriously thought about heading out this evening, but I have a first thing doctor's appointment, that I made before I knew I was coming to GenCon this year. 90% packed, and make a quick stop home just in case I missed something.  Then hit the road.  Not as long of a drive as others.

Chicago is popular and all booked up for the summer using loyalty points. I literally made up my mind to go a week ago. Next time I shall plan further ahead.
