    ISU/Iowa Tailgating: When will you start?

    My group is trying to determine when to leave to hopefully get there before the big rush of people. We are thinking of leaving Des Moines around 5am which should put us in Ames around 5:45. Early enough? We got into Ames at 12 last Saturday and couldn't park in G3 because it was full...so we are trying not to make that mistake again.

    When is everyone else planning on getting to Ames?

    Starting as early as they'll let us in the lots. Bringing the RV up Friday night to park in Vet Med then once someone gets the line started for G2/G3 lot we are getting in line too.

    We will be there around 8 but we are in S7 so no lines to deal with.

    Re: ISU/Iowa Tailgating: When will you start?

    All I have to say is 2 years ago we had a parking pass and showed up right when the lots were supposed to open and they were already near half full it seemed like! Heard rumors that some lots opened as much as 2 hours early because the lines were getting too long and traffic was getting to be a mess. That's just what I heard but we did show up exactly 6 hours before kickoff and not only was traffic bad then but our normal parking spots we usually got showing up 6 hours before were taken. In 2003 I remember showing up about the same time and waiting on Elwood an hour before we got parked so unless you don't want to wait in line on Elwood or even highway 30 showing up after the lots open at 6:30 might not be a lot of fun.

    Re: ISU/Iowa Tailgating: When will you start?

    While I will arrive about 30 minutes before kick off (darn kids and their soccer games ), you can easily get in before 6:30. 2005 we arrived in C4 at 5:30 AM. If you want to get there early... even earlier is better.

    Re: ISU/Iowa Tailgating: When will you start?

    We are going like 8 or 9. But that is the beauty of reserved parking, the lots are empty until 1 hr before kickoff. Just drive right on in.

    I think we are going pretty early (5:15) to try and grab the same spot (walkway in c4). Hopefully we can duplicate last weeks top 5 tailgate party! Not sure about bringing the beer pong table though...
