    We now tailgate with another large tailgating crew. This is partly why we all try and meet at the RT hotel in morning and travel in convoy to the stadium to ensure that we are all together. The parking lots at Gillette are huge and spread all around the stadium and Patriot Place.

    I believe that the ticket you have bought includes a contribution towards drinks, but you will need to make a cash contribution towards the food (of which there will be plenty). Tailgating also continues after the game to allow a lot of the traffic to clear before we leave the parking lots.

    Not to say this is in any way the official amount but my bro and I put in $30 each to the tailgate contributions pot

    According to Google maps its a 1,346 mile round trip from Norwood to go to Canton first, then on up to Cleveland and back via Buffalo along the I90.

    Could be done with sharing the driving (Neil excluded from driving due to being a new driver). Chance to see a bit more of the country and try a few Diners, Drive-ins or Dives. Also keeps the costs down with everyone sharing the car & fuel costs. Thelma & Louise can stay at home.

    I know you've looked at a 6 seater hire, I'll already have wheels for the whole week, don't mind driving if booking a 4 seater is a cheaper option.
    I've also got an 8 mile detour to make in Buffalo 

  3. I'll already have an Impala for the week, don'y know how to go about adding a driver or how that would work with the funds being blocked on my CC for insurance should anything happen. I don't mind driving, I've driven to Florida from RI, and West Virginia from Missouri, it's pretty tedious on the interstate and there are certain places to avoid at rush hour, planning is paramount. You do realise this drive is the equivalent of driving from Edinburgh to Rome?
    Canton's on my bucket list, so is First Energy which is across the road from RnR HOF.
    The Radisson in downtown CLE is showing £75 a night on google, haven't looked at twin rooms yet.
    Glasgow Pat and I would be starting from RI so add about 130 miles extra driving to the totaliser.

    Hi guys just wondering what majority of people do after the game whilst on the road trip.  I am guessing the fins games wraps up by 5pm local. Do roadtrippers tend to hang around soak up atmosphere and tailgate and stay in the local hotel for a second night.  Or hightail it into Boston?  

    Stand very close to the BBQ and hand out food and beer to those in need until the cops throw us out the car park. Someone will have a TV setup with the late afternoon game showing, or there's always cornholing.

    We will most likely be tailgating with the Tailgate2000 crew as last year, as this was a great experience to mix and mingle with a large group of fans.  We discussed this with Paul at the Chiefs game and he was all for it - makes his job easier from the tailgate perspective. 

    Excellent! Obviously the tailgate was the highlight last year after bombing to the Bills, sis is being a bit prissy about her car so I doubt we'll be able to pick up in Boston unfortunately. Her mood might change, but I wouldn't bank on it. I still reckon hiring a car for the day between 5 of you would be cheaper than the bus.

  6. I'll see if we can borrow my sister's 7 seater, no guarantees as I've already hired a car and usually pick up some UK pats from their hotel (I would know for definite that week if she's feeling generous ;) ), I had a quick look on rentalcars and a one day hire would be around £35 if you timed your 24 hour rental correctly and picked up at 10pm on the Saturday night and paid the parking at Gillette it would still work out cheaper than a $200 round trip in a cab
