 ```I am at the International Dog Show at McCormick Place North, in Chicago. I have no idea how many times I went from one end of the place to the other today but I am one tired puppy. How far IS it, in miles, half-miles, whatever (not sq footage) from one end of McC.Plce No. to the other? Thanks```
 ```Hello groendog2-ga, I deeply sympathize with you. Working a show in a large convention center like McCormick can be exhausting. The maps for the facility are available here: http://www.mccormickplace.com/SubLink.cfm?Main_ID=4&Sub_ID=1 Click on McCormick Place North to get the layout for each of the four levels. Choose the level you're interested in. I think you must be on Level 1 or Level 3, the ones with the large exhibition halls. Click on the floorplans to get the exact measurements and use the conversion table to find the equivalent feet converted to miles. http://www.mccormickplace.com/SubLink.cfm?Main_ID=14&Sub_ID=31 McCormick Place North Building: Level 1 http://www.mccormickplace.com/newwindow.cfm?pic=NorthLvl1 Hall C1 272' x 476' 476 feet = 0.09 miles 272 feet = 0.05 miles Hall C2 192' x 295 192 feet = 0.04 miles 272 feet = 0.05 miles Hall C1 and C2 combined 668' x 272' 668 feet = 0.13 Depending on which of the halls you were walking, end-to-end you walked about 1 to 1 1/2 miles each time you walked the length of the hall. If you were walking the combined Halls B1 and B2 on Level 3 from one end to the other you were walking over 2 miles each trip. http://www.mccormickplace.com/newwindow.cfm?pic=NorthLvl3 McCormick Place North Building -- Level 3 Hall B1 272' x 476' 790 feet = 0.15 miles 452 feet = 0.09 miles Hall B2 192' x 295 326 feet = 0.06 miles 335 feet = 0.06 miles Hall B1 and B2 combined 1116' 1116 feet = 0.21 miles http://www.metric-conversions.org/length/feet-to-miles.htm feet to miles conversion calculator The links I've provided should help you figure out exactly how many miles you covered depending on where your show was located at McCormick. I hope you can kick back and relax and recover from your long hike. All the best. ~ czh ~```
