Oh crap. That is:
A. my birthday on Saturday
B. MEA weekend so jr is off Thursday and Friday.

Soo tempting, but we have talked about going to NYC for that weekend. My cousin's kid is in an off-Broadway show and if they are still playing we would go to that.

Decisions, decisions.

Last time we road tripped as a family with what is now GPL crew I felt like I should have had my hands over jr's ears most of the game while sitting in the section under the overhang at the old DRECC. Now, he's heard all that and more on the ice and in the locker room.

For those of you not familiar with GopherPuckLive, there is indeed a huge contingent going. Last I heard, I think they had 20 rooms booked (2-3 to a room minimum) at the good ol' Travel Lodge. :eek:


Lots of Gopher fans and an opponent that will most likely roll over for you? Sounds great!

Where do I sign up? :D

My group will be leaving Friday morning probably, but we are staying with the whole GPL crew.Just a suggestion, but its a good idea to be there Thursday night. ;)

Wish I could, but I have already used my vaca for this year and I'm not sure I want to drive through the night on Thursday. So we will probably be leaving Friday morning(may even have to go into work for an hour or two before we leave:mad:).

It would be nice to caravan with someone who knows where they are going as no one from my group has ever been there before. We should keep in touch as we get closer to that weekend if you think you are leaving Friday morning like we plan to do.

Hoven, MNS, and anyone else in my car: I am throwing my keys at one of you and you drive.Ok, so if I'm going up at the same time you guys are, I'll drive myself. I don't feel like packing that many people in a car for that long, and I need to listen to my music.

There will be most kinds of music, dammit. Rock, rap, metal, old school country, novelty.
