OT: Sugar Bowl Road Trip Stories
Where are you staying in Tallahassee? I just left Delray Beach and we are staying there tonight.
What time are you going to start trolling the Lions open thread today?
leaving tonight, stay tuned.
Nashville tonight, NOLA tomorrow.
Somebody's has a THIS IS MICHIGAN FORGODSAKE sign in the window of their car. Otherwise nothing special.
Should have come to Nashville last night. Place was insane. Heading to Nola from here shortly.
Yes. Yes... I saw a pimp, slap one of his "workers" who was wearing a red thong, right in front of 2 police officers who didn't do a thing. Definitely something you don't see in good ol' Ann Arbor!
but Im only 4 hrs away.
Drank way too much in the Nola, but did see rvb and Denard on bourbon street. Quite a few Michigan fans down here, which is good. Pretty crazy night!! Oh and looked for a taxi for like two plus hours.
My oldest son, myself , brother in law and his oldest only live about 75 miles fom New Orleans. So we probably won't have any really good road trip stories
Leaving this afternoon. Hitting Bowling Green, KY then Nola tomorrow.
Front row end zone of 49ers Rams right now. New Orleans tomorrow.
last night and leaving for NOLA tomorrow morning.
Flew from DET this am to ATL than to Baton Rouge. From Atlanta, there were a bunch of VA athletic administrators who kept telling us to beat va tech and got to watch the whole game Auburn vs. Virginia. Coooolll story brooooo
Nashville for some southern BBQ for dinner and staying in Tuscaloosa for the night to check out their campus.
And been having a blast
Considered starting a similar thread at 0800, when I was leaving Chicago in the rain/snow and all amped up. Was thinking something like "Road trip, bitches."
Saw a couple flag and decal adorned SUVs before Champagne, but nothing since.
Lost my window flag at Mt. Vernon, less than a mile after deploying it on my first gas-up. :( Pretty windy today. Guess I'll stick with magnets from now on.
Gorgeous skies as I cross the bridge into TN.
Make that Missouri (miz-ER-uh).
Safe travels, everyone!
Leaving bright and early tomorrow morning! Only an 8 hour drive from Dallas, but hopefully I'll pick up some good stories along the way.
Can't wait to be there!
driving through middle of nowhere Georgia and saw a sign that read "privet property".
I'll b checking back often to see who's posting which bars to meet at...
Still have one hour more till I hit my stopping point Bowling Green KY. Geaux Blue
I took a 28 hour train....I joined the 9 foot club in my sleeper car with my train gf. too bad she got off in Memphis..
PICS OR SHES A DUDE.
at noon. Hit the quarter for lunch then went back after dinner. We saw some crazy $hit, literally. Mr. Hankey was in the Quarter with his Santa Clause hat, so he WAS the Xmas Poo.
I was offered sexual favors for my M hat. The girl was cute too. I said, "I wont trade my M hat even for sex with the Mrs." The girl's mouth dropped. Thank God the Mrs didnt hear her.
Later on, it got real crazy when Mrs heard gunshots. I laughed at her and then listened. Yup, she was right. Sounded like a 9mm or a .40S&W. Stepped into Walgreens and the clerk said get out of the Quarter NOW. We ran. We left about 10pm local time, just enough time to get to the hotel by midnight EST to call the kids.
Today we drove up to Gulfport for a walk on the beach. The beach was full of litter. It looked like they filmed an orgy there last night.
Took a tour through the Bayou swamps. That was crazy. Seen a boat in the tree left from Katrina.
We have more peeps sporting M gear than VT and LSU combined. Had dinner with some M fans at the "Corner Bar" on Decater. It was crawling with M fans. We should have a 3 to 1 advantage in the stands come gametime.
Amtrak is good. Even though most people make fun of me when I tell them I rode the train it's better than driving for multiple days.
