    Just booked my trip. We leave DMS Moines around noon on the 29th and fly into La Guardia around 7. Not the best flight times but a couple flights I was looking at sold out, so I pulled the trigger on the 7 o'clock arrival time.

    I've never been to NYC before. This trip is just too good to pass up.

    BOOK IT!

    Got our general plan all laid out. Driving in a group of 5. NYC on New Years Eve should be awesome!

    I don't mind driving, but pry cheaper for us to buy plane tix than it would for just two of us to split gas...I couldn't talk anyone else into driving...

    I've got my tickets done... the rest of it is just buying a commuter ticket at the station in New Haven. Go me.

    Other than the weather being pretty cold, NYC is not a bad place to visit...

    I'm going. Worked out pretty well for me with airfare vouchers from a fail by Frontier, and staying at "relative's" places. Trip should be under 300$ for me

    For others booking, I'm pretty sure AirTran runs a flight from Des Moines to NYC via MKE. The flight stops in MKE, but it's the same plane for both legs (eliminates any issues with connecting flights).

    I've been flying this back and forth to NYC for work (only getting off and going to MSP). Oh, and if you fly AirTran, it's totally worth upgrading to Business Class for $49 (per leg, I only do it for the longer leg).

    Trying to convince my boss to bring me out for the game to "work" (zero cost as I'd stay with friends/coworkers).

    Just booked flight ex. KC on Frontier for $366. It's gonna be a long day. No budget for motel. Flight leaves KC @ 6am arriving 11:15am. Flight home leaves @ 7:30pm arriving @ 10pm. Long day but should keep the trip to $550 +/- $100. According to World Taximeter.com a cab trip from Laguardia to Yankee Stadium is about 8 miles and about $25 w/o tip.

    There was one seat left. If anyone else is making this trip and wants to share a taxi let me know.

    That, my friend, is dedication!

    I wasn't planning on going, but I found some people to stay with for free so now I'm in the process of lining something up... only hang up is finding someone to watch the kids for a few days!

    Just finished booking through the Alumni Assoc for a family of five (2 ISU students and 1 high schooler). Staying at the Millennium Broadway Hotel. I reserved the land package only and booked my own flights out of MSP (Nonstop flights for under $500). Go Cyclones.... its been a great year!
    note to self: An ISU education is a great thing!
