    Need a carpool partner from the game to KC!

    I'm currently living in Kansas City, and am driving up to Ames for football games. Unfortunately, I have to drive back from Ames to KC on Thursday night after the game. It's a 7:00 kickoff and is televised, so it'll probably get done around 11:00. Kansas City is a 3-hour drive. I'll already be tired after a full day of teaching elementary kids (to say nothing of the game itself) and I'm worried about driving home by myself so late at night. Having someone to talk to in the car would solve that problem.

    Would anyone be willing to carpool back to KC with me after the game is over? I would REALLY appreciate it, and can drop you off wherever you need to go.

    (And before anyone asks: No, I can't miss work on Friday morning. I can't even leave early; I get to leave about 3:50pm.)

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Need a carpool partner from the game to KC!

    Bump- please? Anybody? I really need somebody else in the car when I head back to KC. I know there are tons and tons of Cyclones here in KC that will be going to the game; won't anybody take a bit of pity on me? I'll buy you a Coke!

    Isn't there anyone out there that can help this guy out? Sounds like cheap transportation to a game.

    I'm stubborn, so I'm not letting this die just yet... Anyone? You can ride up with me too, if you need/want a ride to the game and all your friends are leaving earlier. (If you couldn't get the day off of work, this is for you!) I just really need a travel partner on the way back.

    Re: Need a carpool partner from the game to KC!

    Just a suggested option. There is an I-35 rest stop just after you cross the border into Mo., headed South. Pull in around 1:30 a.m.ish and crawl in the back and sleep for a few hours. You will be amped up after the game and the adrenalin rush will carry you that far, easily. If you start in again at 5:30 a.m. headed South again you will be in good shape and 4 hrs. of sleep will be enough. You said Ames was a 3 hr. drive so you must be on the far North side of the KCmetro.

    Not a bad idea; I'm already tired, so I might have to do that. No, I live in Westport, right near the Plaza (or near 39th & Troost, if you know the area). It's about 3h 20min or so, if I recall correctly.

    Another good tip to help stay awake while driving late night is to chew sunflower seeds. Tyring to get the seed out of the shell keeps your mind active so you stay awake.

    Take a 5 hour energy around 9pm...you should be able to leave around 9:30 though once the game becomes a cyclone blowout.
