After assembling at Calumet College on the 4th of October, 1999, we piled into Thom Gibbons' van and headed to the Grand Calumet River Walk, which runs along the south side of the river between Hohman and Sohl Avenues in Hammond.
Then we drove across East Chicago to Gary's Clark Road. Between the old villages of Clarke and Pine we hopped out to stroll through the Clark & Pine Nature Preserve.
After driving around some more, working out what would be worthy sites to pass by and inform the public about, we checked out Whiting's Lakefront Park and scampered over the rip-rap and out onto the pier.
We drove back to the campus along Whiting's main street, 119th, which did end up on the actual conference tour.
