    Re: Travel to Kansas

    I'll be there in Section 48...planning on greeting the game once they get to the Stadium, I think it would be good if alot of us going to the game would do the same thing!

    Re: Travel to Kansas

    I have went to KU the last 2 times we have played down there. I did not have tickets and purchased them on the morning of the game with no problem and moved to the ISU section even though my seats were better. I am a little apprehensive this time not knowing the availbility of reasonably priced tickets. $3.00 gallon gas does not help either.

    I was planning on going, but my accounts say "poor" so I can't make it.

    Re: Travel to Kansas

    I would love to, but just too much going on right now and a bit too far.
    (I have my fingers crossed to be back in Ames for some BBall games later on)

    Re: Travel to Kansas

    I wanted to go two years ago but I had to be a drum corps camp up in Minnesota. Now I am hoping that we can avenge Kansas from two years ago. My thoughts if there is any coaching staff in the Big XII North that can figure out how to stop Kansas it's Chizik, McFarland, and Bolt. GO CYCLONES!!!

    Re: Travel to Kansas

    good topic, as it'll cover some questions i have.

    if i dont have to work next saturday, then im leaving fort dodge about 6am, and heading down.

    i dont have a ticket but will plan to acquire one outside the stadium via fans with extras. otherwise is it feasible to walk up and buy the day of the game? might be tough considering they are pretty much playing for a chance at a national championship game.

    You must drive in amazing places every day to consider the drive to KU that terrible. There are a lot worse places to drive than to northeast Kansas. Unless you went through Missouri. Then I don't blame you.

    Re: Travel to Kansas

    If you think the drive to Lawrence is bad, take the 2 hour drive past Lawrence to Wichita. I swear- there's parts of Kansas where you see no hills, no trees, nothing. It's like looking out on the ocean, but instead of beautiful water there's a**-ugly prairie grass.

    Re: Travel to Kansas

    I try to drive through Kansas only at night, so I can see the sea of stars. Very pretty, and you can still see the milky way even as there is no signs of civilization for miles around!

    Costs freak'n $10 to do that but... pretty. *@#$ toll roads


    As for me, Section 48 row 38. Maybe I'll get lucky and can "upgrade" my seats like we did at Mizzou (aka no one was there so we went and sat in the front row :biggrin"


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    The I-35 toll is well worth it through Kansas. Those were some of the nicest roads I've ever driven on.

    Still sucks when you're a poor college student who is already driving 16 hours down to Austin/10 hours to Norman/14 hours to Lubbock (and paying for said gas)

    But I will give you that, you certainly notice when you've left the toll road system
