    Early AM kickoff's, when do you leave?

    11:30AM is an early one. We've been spoiled with night games so far....

    If you travel long distance...what time are getting the gear ready and hitting the road to JTS?.

    5AM...4AM......gasp 3am?

    Re: Early AM kickoff's, when do you leave?

    My wife, my sister, her boyfriend, his brother, and I are leaving Eldridge at 7:00 tomorrow morning, which should put us in Ames no later than 10:00. Not a lot of time to tailgate, but should be able to get something in...

    2-3AM!!!

    Wow.....aren't you in the lots by 5AM? Pretty much tailgating in the dark till almost 7AM. Especially in Oct/Nov

    Might be a silly question, depending on where you park, but can you see at that hour? Bring Lights?
