2006 Road Trip – Day # 11 (Game #10)

The drive to St. Louis was an easy one, all I had to do was take I-70 West from just south of Pittsburgh and I would run into St. Louis. So needless to say the drive wasnt that exciting at all. Those 600 miles went pretty quick really and I am guessing it was because […]

2006 Road Trip – Day # 10 (Game # 9)

Since I wanted to be in Buffalo, NY around noon, I knew that I could sleep in a bit, so I did.  I finally hit the road about 9am for my short drive to Niagara Falls.  I had been hearing how Niagara is only 44 miles away, so it wouldn’t be that bad of a […]

2006 Road Trip – Day # 9 (Game # 8)

The drive to Toronto wasn’t that bad really.  I was very tired though, so that was a bit of a struggle. Getting into Canada was much easier than I thought it would be really.  The lady at the border asked me what my home country was, I replied “US”.  She then asked if I had […]

2006 Road Trip – Day # 8 (Game # 7)

Back to another early morning and out the door and on the road by 5:30am.  I needed to get out of the main part of Chicago as early as I could and by the time I did, I was suprised at how easy it was to get out.  I did reralize that my mapping software […]

2006 Road Trip – Day # 7 (Game # 6)

A day of rest was finally here.  There was still several things I could have done today in Chicago, but I opted for a day of rest and lunch with an ole friend of mine… especially since she said we should go to Portillo’s!  So after sleeping in until about 9am, I got a few […]

2006 Road Trip – Day # 6 (Game # 5)

I only had 2 things planned to do today, so I slept in a bit before heading to Wrigley Field for a 1:20pm game vs the Cardinals, the rubber match of the series.  I hit the road about 9:30am heading towards Wrigley.  I had decided to just try to park closer so I can walk […]

2006 Road Trip – Day # 5 (Game # 4)

Can you say WRIGLEY FIELD?  I was on my way to Chicago and very excited about getting to see Wrigley Field again.  I had been to a game there once, back in 1999, but it rained out in the 6th inning. The next time I tried to go to a game there, well, it didn’t […]

2006 Road Trip – Day # 4 (Game # 3)

Got up and on the road early this morning, about 4:30am.  I drove 280 miles to Green Bay so I could take the tour of Lambeau Field.  I got into town, found where I needed to be and was there 45 minutes before the first tour.  Having read that tours sell out fast, and needing […]

2006 Road Trip – Day # 3 (Game #2)

I got to sleep in today, which was nice.  Was strange to be sitting in my hotel at 10:30am since the last couple days I had already been on the road for 6-7 hour at that point. But then I realized that I had a ballgame in 90 minutes and I had to get ready […]

2006 Road Trip – Day # 2 (Game # 1)

Was up and out the door and on the road at 3:30am this morning.  I had a long drive ahead of me, but I thought it should be easier than yesterday, since I had no mountains to deal with, so I should be able to make some good time and sure enough I did. The […]
