Very true. I was working under the assumption that people would check
out in the morning, go to Argonne (reverse commute is fast) and leave
directly from Argonne to the hotel. The total distance is greater but
it is logistically simpler than walking, taxiing, etc. to some new
location, is it not?
The Argonne is zero cost for the space, which may be an advantage
relative to other sites, such as at one of the hotels.
I agree that my idea is far-fetched, but I live 3 miles from Argonne.
I am pretty sure Dave and Darius will be much happier as well.
