I'm glad others suggested the HOF. If you have any appreciation for the history of the Packers and the NFL it is a must. Another suggestion would be to fly into Madison or drive from GB and take in a Badger game on Saturday if that's possible, have a good full weekend of football. Both are two of the best game day experiences in the nation, yet quite different. By the way, unless it's a real big game you can pick up 2 tickets for the Badgers outside Camp Randall the day of the game at about face value or less. If it were me I would take a 3 day weekend, fly into GB or close by, take in the HOF and GB on Fri, go to Madison on Sat, and GB game on Sun. You may need Mon. to recuperate but it will be worth it!LOL

if your looking for a hotel check out the little town North of Green Bay called Oconto, they have 2 hotels and its only a 20 minute drive. Now for the airport I would suggest flying into Milwaukee via Southwest or check into flying into Appleton on an airline called Allegiant, I flew my mom from Las Vegas for $119 each way

Appleton sounds to me like the best place to fly in. It's really only about a 20-30 minute drive, depending. Traffic can get congested on gameday though. Traffic to the south can be a bitch.

Lots of of cool bars in Appleton. It's a college town. Check out college avenue.

Wausau also would be a cool idea. Lots of outdoors type stuff to do there. Longer drive than Appleton, but it would very likely be less congested.

there are dozens of places within walking distance of the stadium. Not cheap but it's a pilgrimage so damn the kids college fund.

$10.00? are you serious. The kids are already not going to college so splurge and spend the $10.00 [grin1]

.


I AM the college kid!

Trying to budget the $$$ for both of us. But DAMMIT we are going!

We've been talking about it for years, I'm trying to get it in motion.

Went to Kroll's East for lunch yesterday. Bacon cheeseburger with fries. It wasn't that bad, but when you order, make sure to tell them you do not want butter added ... unless you like'em super greasy! I think that Five Guys Burgers and Fries is better.

beast (2h) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (3h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (3h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (3h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (3h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (23h) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
