Answers:
What is the layout of your crashpad?
      
 
Our crashpad has two bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths. There are 2 sets of bunkbeds in each bedroom. Since this Crashpad is a condo there is MUCH more floor space than other crashpads located in nearby apartments.
 
How many pilots are in your crashpad?
      
Ten members is the most we would have in the crashpad at any one time.
 
How many pilots are in your crashpad on any particular night?      
 
If we had full occupancy you can expect a total of 2-4 members staying on any particular night on average. Many times there are less and sometimes more, particularly during the first of the month when the reserve manning is highest.
 
How close is your Crashpad to ORD?      
 
The crashpad is off of the "Cumberland" train stop from ORD which is less than 10 minutes. The walking distance from our crashpad to the train stop is about 5-6 minutes.
 
Is there public transportation from ORD to your Crashpad?      
 
Yes, our crashpad is just a 5-6 minute walk to the train station and we are just 2 stops from ORD, less than 10 minutes. The train costs $1.50 each way and discounts are given if you buy a reusable prepaid pass with $10 or more. The train runs about every 7 minutes during rush hour and every 10-15 minutes during off peak times. The train operates 24hrs a day.
 
Do I need to bring my own bed sheets, blankets, and pillows?
 
We have lots of extras of each in the hall closet. However, this is stuff that past members have left behind and which we have washed and folded. It is recommended that you bring your own.
 
Is parking available for my car?
      
Yes, we have a designated parking spot at our complex just for our members. However it is first come first serve. Very few members bring a car to ORD so it is mostly unused. We do have temporary parking stickers available for our members and which is required by the city to park on the street If you plan on staying long term you can get a permanent sticker for a fee. You also can use the employee parking at ORD and just take the train to ORD when you want to pick up your car.
 
Are there restaurants and supermarkets near your crashpad?
      
We are within walking distance of everything you need. A Dominic’s supermarket is across the train stop from our crashpad. A Bennigans is located at the train stop and a "Hooters" near Dominics. There is also a great burger place, a chinese take out, a convenience store, and a dry cleaners about a 1/2 block south on cumberland.
 
Is there running trails near your crashpad?
 
Schiller Park, about 1/2 mile west has miles of running trails through the woods and along the Des Plaines river.
 
What about Gym Facilities?
 
We are just a couple hundred yards from a Bally’s fitness center. If you don't have a membership to Bally's they have a plan which lets you use that gym (not a national plan) for about $5 per week.
