    It wouldn't surprise me at all if there are Packers fans somewhere already booking rooms and flights to Indy.
    Heck, there were probably a few who even started doing that as soon as the final second ticked in Dallas of Stealers vs Packers.

    While you do not purchase the tickets through Seat Hound, if the game does NOT happen you will get your money back.

    LOL... I have to wait two years?!?!
    Actually, the cash flow is not there at all for a road trip. Just the price of the tickets alone is beyond my wallet. :(

    Yeah it'll be great to do some kind of tailgate when the Pack come to town. Born and raised in SF, so there weren't too many Pack fans around these parts and I've always had to go solo amongst all my 49ers friends during tailgates at Candlestick.

    I've been a long time lurker to this forum and when I saw the epic tailgate in San diego, I almost bought a last minute plane and game ticket. Gotta hand it to you RealCal, awesome get-together. I'll most definitely be seeing you during the NFC Championship weekend.

    I wish you could have made it down it was an awesome day and an awesome game. The way the Packers and 9'ers are going a new rivalry could be starting and it will be another awesome day. One thing I learned. An Epic tailgate is best done by more than one person or you don't get to party. So when the time comes in a couple of years we'll get together and get a few people and recreate Lambeau west in No Cal. In the meantime Looking forward to meeting up at the Citadel of the NFL next month.

    I need help guys and gals. I am looking for a good pair of boots to buy for when I come to Lambeau. I bought some coleman ducks but when I looked at them they sucked. Checked out some LL BEAN boots. Any suggestions to keep my feet cozy and dry without breaking the bank?

    Thanks

    Will you ever use them again?

    Because trust me when I say this...You can buy a real cheap pair, use the foot warmers, good socks place cardboard under feet, and you should be fine...

    I hunted and ice fished in same real cold weather with just cheap KMART brands and I was okay..Yes the high priced ones will work best...But cheap ones if only one time can work too..

    No matter what type you get, you need to make sure they fit with the socks you will be wearing..Because if you wear two layers, you dont want a tight fit, then they will get cold..You need a little wiggle room in case they do start to get cold..

    Also, use MITTENS not gloves...Gloves will get your hands colder faster then mittens..

    OR these

    Act as mittens, but can use as gloves if needed...For me, they were perfect in hunting and ice fishing

    Thanks for the excellent tip(s). I also never thought about cardboard. I've been to Lambeau twice (night games), but it was in late November not January! It will be a long day/night outside in the elements and once you're cold, it's hard to shake off.

    I don't have any boots, so I was due. I got a decent pair at Timberland this morning for $84 using a 40% off coupon code (FRIENDS11). http://shop.timberland.com/product/index.jsp?productId=10961117
    Good 'til Dec 5th

    Bought some toasty wool socks too. :)

    If you don't want to bring boots because of luggage weight, visit Fleet Farm when you get here, buy a pair, along with all your warmers, and leave the boots behind at Goodwill or a homeless shelter. Boots are always needed in the frozen tundra.

    Thanks, that makes sense about the tight fit sense you would want the air gap for insulation. I think I want a good pair of boots since I plan on making many more trips in the future when I retire in a couple of years. want a pair I will have for about 20 years. went Ice fishing in a pair of tennis shoes 20 years ago. was not a fun time. thanks for all the good info if there is a brand of boots your recommend let me know.

    I'm like that too, for reasons just like this one. I never take a win for granted. Ever. Been disappointed too many times.

    I marvel at some people and their optimism where football is concerned. I honestly wish I could be like that, and be so resilient that a loss wouldn't discourage me from guaranteeing a win the following week. People do it all the time - I just can't. I never guarantee a win, or plan on one. If I like our chances, I'll say so, but that's as far as I'll go.

    My dad was a very pessimistic Packer fan (really, King of the Karma Pick) - I think it rubbed off on me.

    The new season will be here before we know it. And I learned something from Kurt Warner, and what he said in "A Football Life" - you don't have to win it all to have a good year. A loss in the playoffs or the Super Bowl does not negate everything you've accomplished.

    If he can look at it that way, so can I.
