Last year, it was at the Grand Tetons National Park (I missed it by "that much") and this year we gathered in Chicago.
I was allowed to trailer Scarlett, my 2014 Rig, to the Windy City (turns out another nickname is Second City), and that's what Milli the URV and I did.
Amongst the training that we did, we enjoyed such events as a Improv Show at the Second City Comedy Club and a great evening's entertainment at the House of Blues where some amazing music was performed.
Lord help me, I think I am starting to get used to the hugging my colleagues like to greet each other and me with at the start and end of these events.
Here's some photos I took of Chicago's "Miracle Mile" area of their downtown. At the end is a time-lapse, only 5 seconds worth, of the Willis Tower during the sunrise.

I started the time-lapse sequence

the Sony did the time-lapse
After finishing the time-lapse video, I meandered around on
Michigan Avenue and Wacker Street to get the above and below
shots of buildings I found interesting.
Carved onto the end of the bridge, I found the bas-relief
interesting in that it marked the spot where Fort Dearborn
used to be located.
The place where we enjoyed fantastic blues music and dinner
the night before.
