    Who travels the farthest to Jack Trice?

    **Saw this on hawkeyenation, figured it'd be interesting to get an ISU perspective.**

    How far do you travel to Ames for Iowa State football games? What is the longest travel you've had to JTS?

    Re: Who travels the farthest to Jack Trice?

    I come from Chicago, usually takes about 6-7 hours each way depending on how bad the traffic is getting out of Chicago. (not the farthest, but definitely really boring)

    EDIT: I should clarify I don't come back for every home game. I only make it back for about 3 games per year.

    Re: Who travels the farthest to Jack Trice?

    Made the trip from Austin a couple times, so about 950 miles. Obviously, I don't do this every week there's a home game.
