Good times await in Skokie, Illinois, and it's quite possible that my iPhone camera skillz have improved marginally.

Minutiae:

I am attending a conference with relatively low sartorial standards. I'm presenting on the first day, so I'll wear my fancy-fancies to the site.
My fleece jacket and hat will ride along with me in the car.
I finished my Prezi weeks ahead of time! No all-nighter for this Badger, at least not this year.

Wow, great list and pic, thanks for sharing your experience. How much did your pack weigh? I would never be that prepared to have my talk ready that far in advance! :)

Thanks; glad you liked the pic. I didn't weigh the pack but I'd estimate it was about 11 pounds.

Regarding my talk: believe me, I'm generally not what you'd call an advance planner. The worst was finishing my paper in the taxi on the way to the conference. Not to be repeated, ever.
