  1. I've only ever driven to the games myself, so cannot help with info about the train or shuttle bus. I'm sure there will be a few replies from people who have used those methods though. Driving gives you a lot more flexibility, but no opportunity for having a drink (well maybe one). You would need to set off in good time if you are travelling down from Boston as the traffic gets crazy busy. Parking has just gone up to $60 per car, but if you get there nice and early, you'll have time to experience the tailgating atmosphere, visit the pro-shop (take any bulky purchases back to your car before going into the stadium) and not have to rush out to catch the train or a bus back. Driving back could well take just as long as the train journey. We usually don't bother trying to leave the car park until at least an hour or so after the game.
  2. Hi Howard Thanks for your post. Yes, I was aware that P2 is now $60 per vehicle. Another good reason to get everyone there in the minimum number of vehicles.
  3. As in previous years the plan on the day will be to all meet up at the Roadtrip hotel and travel to the stadium as a small convoy. I have pm'd all confirmed roadtrippers to establish what vehicles we have available and who needs transport on the day. Please could you check your message folder and respond asap. Many thanks
  4. The Hippodrome at Leicester Square is probably your best bet as they show multiple games. Most other bars will probably only be showing whatever the early game is on Sky TV, which I'm pretty sure isn't going to be the Pats stomping all over the Jets
  5. Why the detours, is Darius coming with you
  6. Me & Deb are going, also David & Becky. I believe Warren and Ian Buchanan are going as well & possibly Carl. Me & Deb arrive on the Saturday afternoon, staying until Wednesday morning before flying up to Boston. Haven't booked a hotel yet, but probably likely to book nearer the centre and Reagan airport area.
  7. Thanks for dealing with this again Howard. Really appreciate it. I've pm'd you
  8. Me & the boss are in for this one, she finally got some holidays to coincide with the roadtrip. official application via PM.
  9. I've allocated Carl to your car for the Thursday night game.
  10. North America maps now loaded onto the Garmin and locations due to be visited have been logged in and stored.
  11. Thanks for the PM's and posts guys. It looks like we have got enough space available to get everyone who needs a lift to and from the RT Hotel to Gillette Stadium on both gamedays.
  12. 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.
  13. Done and approved last night. Approval document printed off as well (just in case)
  14. Hire car is booked, accommodation will be what we can find along the way (motels etc) looking forward to seeing a bit more of the States and visiting a couple of cool venues (and a couple of crap ones) see Cleveland & Buffalo.
  15. As per the above, please could you all PM me a preferred email address and mobile number so that I can contact people directly rather than clogging up this thread with transport messages. Mandy has let me have a list of who's attending which games (she does seem to like a spreadsheet), so I already know who's going to be at which games. I will be leaving from the RT hotel for both games (assuming we get back from our other little roadtrip on the Thursday).
