My extended family and myself have been thinking seriously about an Ireland-England-continent trip.

So, what I hope to learn eventually, since this would be my top overseas trip ever, is tips how to incorporate this Cyclone game into an overall immersive trip.

Advice from travel mavens would be highly prized. Thanks!

It's open right now. My interest is WWII, WWI American sacrifice. But, I enjoy long history, so if I go I will dig into so many sources.

My family might have different objectives, which I respect. My sons are 36 and 38, the eldest with a wonderful wife and two young sons under age six.

All is open. At my age, I don't intend to restrict myself in time.

I appreciate it if you have suggestions to offer. Thanks!

1st game of the season, I'll pencil in the L. But it would be a heck of a trip. Maybe this yr we will look good early so I'll be more enthusiastic about early season games against decent opposition.

As I teacher and also an Iowa St grad… this game in Ireland doesn’t make too much sense. I’ve heard marketing and branding…but..this game will be watch by..an alum, a rival, and those that don’t want to sleep in. I know it sounds cool and exciting…doesn’t do much for me. Take away a chance for home fans (yes, I know we are away) to have an effect! I know many that would be pissed to lose a home game! Not one fan base ever wants that! With that… great friend with a k st grad and he isn’t happy! Negates home field and true farmageddon! Goodby big 12!

I'm sorry that you're a teacher and can't go.
