That's great news on the new rig Bum! I've always been a believer in the more the merrier when it comes to tailgating. Two years ago when we hit the road with OF1 we were the only vehicle when we went to KC, SD, and NO. Last year we were on our own in NY but it was great having the local support of guys out there to help out. In KC this year there was a group of 6-8 Broncos tailgaters lumped together (rvs, cars, OF1 etc). Dallas we had OF1 and Ron the Limo man's ride and his crew (Woody, Barrelman etc).
It really helps alot to have multiple vehicles and some local knowledge in each city. We definetly have that now. It does offer a little bit more of a challenge trying to get all the cars, the bus, and RVs in the same lot. Based on passed experience though most stadiums seem to lump RVs/Buses together.
All I would hope to see is that we manage to keep the group together at the various stadiums and not have the group split up into multiple tailgates. There is strength in numbers especially when it comes to stadiums like the Giants. The damn Giants fans were launching beer bottles towards our tailgate! (nothing we couldn't handle without a little diplomatic conversation).
With that being said I'm real excited about this upcoming season and the support of other fellow omaners/RVers who plan on making road trips!
Last year we were sorta flying by the seat of our pants and trying to plan all the home game tailgates and the away game at the same time. With the support of Midwest/East Coast coordinators we can nail down parking lots alot earlier and get these tailgates planned much more in advance. I'd say all in all they went pretty well last year but there is always room for improvement. Expecially when it comes down to nailing down specific tailgate locations as I know there were some fellow omaners who had trouble finding the tailgate at a few games. Some of that was out of our control being that some of the older stadiums (Buffalo) is very confusing and the parking lot signs don't make any sense!
Anyhow when the schedule rolls out I'll set up the threads for each game and we can start nailing down plans!
The home game tailgates are going to be alot better this year as I have been working on a pretty big project! I can't make the official announcement just yet but I will real soon!
