Kinda Football Related ---- Planning Football Road Trip

MotownGIANTS : 5/17/2019 12:22 pm
Is it really viable to take the train from Baltimore to NY?

Tentative plan is Pats vs Ravens (Sun Night Game)... then come to NY for the Monday Night game vs Dallas.


11/3 and 11/4

Is the weather really low 60s during that time?
Two night games

my point of reference is walking around w the kids the last few Halloweens ...

Dont plan on 60s my friend. Plan for low-mid 40s that time of day. Maybe ya get lucky n you're mid 50s but I wouldn't plan that way - always easier to remove a layer

Good luck w the transportation .. if you dont make out w Trains consider buses

BUS
I've taken the train from DC to NY

shouldn't be any problems.
Amtrak's pretty reliable...

The Regional's are a little slower, but less expensive while Acela is faster and more expensive.

Definitely wouldn't plan on the weather being in the 60s

bucket list ... all 32 stadiums ... anywhere from 8 of us to 12 (normally)... still voting on what week/games ...

We usually do 2 games in 1 "weekend"

So any advice and/or heads up is appreciated ....

*at both

Even if you just rent one so you can park it and have a place to keep items ... food, beer, cheapo charcoal grill (even if its throwaway) and some layers of clothes for everyone to throw on for gametime

How do you do 2 games every weekend? All but 2 of the games each week are on Sundays. You hit a 1 PM game and then have enough time to get to an entirely different city for the Sunday nighter? I'm confused.

When the schedule comes out we just look at where we have not been yet (1st) ... and see if logistically we can make 2 games happen in 1 weekend. Example a previous time it was Pittsburgh vs Cincy then to Philly for a NYG away game by way of Atlantic City ... This trip won in the voting poll ... 2nd place was going to Texans and Saints.

Ha ....

2nd place made a late push in the polls Houston and New Orleans won out ...

But again thanks to those who offered positive input, much appreciated it.
