Yay new thread!

So, we left off at tubbing at Zooropa man's house and setting up tents and sleeping bags on the driveway.............

How is your water pressure?

Just confirming our worst fears......(someone may have mentioned previously, but I'll do it again, just because )

A friend of mine attended that huge soccer game a few weeks back at the Rose Bowl w/ a crowd of I believe 80,000 ish, She said it was an absolute mess! She spent two hours before and after in the car dealing with parking and exiting. She said that it was very poorly organized.

Shuttle is lookin' really good......and I'm thinking a cheap beach chair that I will dump in the trash along w/a disposable bag w/drinks, water, snacks etc..... and maybe shuttling out for a lunch run or something?? Just some thoughts...



edit - I'm a GA virgin so you vets will have to share what is usually done in this type of situation.

I've done GA at the United Center (Chicago), Fleet Center (Boston), and Rose Garden (Portland), and I get the impression that this is completely different territory altogether For all three of those locations, I was at a hotel within walking distance. I wish I had something helpful to offer . . .

I believe this is the best idea so far based on info available so far...

Going into the venue, in my experience, there's a massive pile of stuff that ppl leave - I did it in snow so there were sleeping bags/blankets/gloves/hats/ scarves etc. I'd like to think that the Red Cross came by during the concert to pick them up. But yeah, disposable is good.

Ppl will let you leave for a little bit to get food, esp if you offer to make a run for those around you in line

Check out the drugstores or dollar stores for sales on things, like inflatable things we can sit & lay on, and easily dump. And yes, cheap/old lawn chairs will work too. At Staples center, I could walk back to my car & put everything away. That won't be the case at the Rose Bowl. In Hawaii, we had cheap inflatable rafts we could sit/lay on. Everybody was leaving/dumping their stuff when the gates opened. I hope all that stuff was donated or put to some good use.

Oh, and bring food/snacks with you if possible, and definitely offer to pick up / pay for food if someone else is willing/able to go for it.

And I hope the fires will be out by then Maybe they will have to change the venue to the Coliseum (I kid... , just cuz the Coliseum seems more able to handle this size crowd vs. the Rose Bowl). Hoping the fires are out soon, but seeing it on the news, it don't look good. And driving thru Pasadena/Glendale over the weekend...

Thanks to all of you! Very good tips! I love the inflatable idea too clearance time too in the stores.

The fires have been horrible. Air quality here has been really bad, I've been taking hits off my inhaler left and right and normally I have no issues. My heart truly goes out to the poor people that have have lost loved ones and homes. Hopefully everything will get under control soon.

Did you go by the Rose Bowl on your trip?

What do you think the breaking point is for giving in to a scalper? I'm not sure if the prices are going to get better or worse . . .
