    Get this sh!t!!

    So, I have tickets to go to the VIKINGS-packer game at Lambeau this year on November 14th. Well today I called to get reservations at hotels in Green Bay. Friday night would cost me 100 bucks for two double beds in a room (at the Hilton, which is right across the street), on Saturday and Sunday night however, the price jumps to 299.99 a night!! What a
    FU!@#$G joke!! I can't believe that. Everywhere is pretty much booked for the weekend too!! Sorry, I just had to vent!!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Same here.

    I found out recently, that I got two Tix for that game, as well.

    This was about three weeks ago. When I looked for a rm, found out I
    was Months too late.

    When the schedules are announced, all the hotels in that area, are
    booked within 24 hrs. Sucks.

    Me & my bud are thinkin of doin a motor home to the casino there,
    gamble Sat night, party with a bunch of tailgaters (friends of mine),
    Sunday, & leave Mon. morn.

    I couldn't find a rm. I'm surprised there even is one! I'd grab it,
    if I were you.

    It's easy to stay down in the Fox Valley...It's a quick drive up and I can talk you around the traffic a little. I think its a Milwaukee game, so the Milwaukee fans always pile up traffic like lemmings. If you know what you're doing, its not too hard to get in and find a spot.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    Milwaukee game? Dude, that's history, unfortunately. He$$, I could
    just drive up from here, and leave same day, as it's only 2 1/2 hrs.
    from here. :roll:

    But now, ALL games are now at Lambau field. That's about 5-6 hrs.
    from here.

    Gotta find a place to stay, or use a friends Motor home. Never did
    a RV trip, cept for hunting in Montana. Done THAT 3 times. But that's
    a whole bunch of other stories!

    Thanks, anyway.

    chicago mike,

    I'll save Los the burden of responding to your post.

    Yes, the Packers haven't played in Milwaukee for years. But, they still have split season tickets -
    half the season goes to the original Green Bay season ticket holders, half to the original Milwaukee season ticket holders.

    When he says it's a Milwaukee game and the Milwaukee fans pile up traffic like lemmings - he knows what he's talking about (like usual).

    Sorry, but ignorance isn't always bliss.

    I just can't afford those prices. I already paid $300 for the tickets and paying those prices for the room would set me back another $350 for the weekend. I really don't want to support the city of Green Bay anymore than I have to!! I think we are going to try and stay in Appleton, that just means that we won't be able to get sloppy drunk at the game!!

    Hey VKG, just ask LOS if you can stay at his place. He'll prolly let you stay free too.

    Actually heres a deal to work out, if the vikes win, and both have to agree, you get to stay at his place and if the packers win, well thats the hard part. Dont know what you could do for him and the fact that the packers winning is bad enough as well.

    But im sure Los is nice enough to let you stay over no matter what, right LOS?
