What I've discovered since the 4 years of tailgating since I have moved back to Colorado is that a tailgate is always evolving. It definetly sounds like you've been at this for many years from what I've gathered and hence have your routine down. We seemed to be in a constant state of flux from game to game on what to bring etc. I think this year we finally will be able to get a routine going and simply alot of stuff.
This is my first year down in Lot c. You say the gates should be open around 10:00am?
We have some 30 hours yet to go before we pull OF1 out of her spot. She has been sitting in the same place since about July 8th I think it was. Inside her party of her belly will be home grown Arizona Mesquite that will be filling the south lot with a sweet aroma this season. We should have plenty of it Nut if you want to burn some. It drives me nuts when I buy little backs of the stuff in Denver for 8 bucks.
Anyway I agree. BBQ is on the menu for KC.
I can't tell you how excited I am for this season. Look forward to seeing you again sunday morning.
