    Default Green Bay Here We Come GDG

    Saw on ESPN that there were 13,000 tickets for Sunday's playoff game with the 49'ers against the Packers.

    Decided that I needed to experience a playoff game at Lambeau field. To my surprise, my wife (an Arizona Native) wanted to go. Got four tickets at the 50 yard line, 25 rows up. Should be a hoot.

    Any clothing tips? Other tips on what to bring? Weather forecast is 9 degrees with 10 mph wind. Yikes that will be cold!

    Coveralls, insulated. Earmuffs/good hat with earflaps, good mittens, insulated boots and smartwool socks. And use the packets of handwarmers in boots and mittens. A gaiter or scarf to pull over your face if needed.

    You'll have fun....Lambeau Field is like no place else, and Packer fans are....well....Packer fans. So much history there....take some time to check out the whole place if you can.

    And practice yelling GO PACK GO!!

    Enjoy!

    p.s. if you end up with a spare ticket, holler!

    It will be cold in the stadium, no doubt, so have insulated & weatherproof footwear, headwear, gloves & clothing (camo & blaze orange hunting gear is never out of place in WI). Blanket is not bad idea either. We went there for playoffs several years ago, big blizzard, but it was a total blast. Give yourself time to experience the whole tailgate beforehand, it's something to just wander through. Everyone's friendly and helpful and pumped, just a fun time all around. When we've gone, we've parked in the local neighborhoods right close to the stadium and walk in, it's like $20 and worth it, not too hard to get out afterwards. The parking lots there are a bit more of a challenge, especially getting out.

    A piece of styrofoam just big enough to put your feet on. Helps even with insulated boots.
    and I would put the heat packs in boots also.

    Layer. A foam pad to sit on is nice to have. Hot Pocket handwarmers are WONDERFUL when you are stationary for long periods.( I use them Goose hunting). Mittens not gloves. Wind proof outer layer is nice as is a scarf and as mentioned a stadium blanket.

    I have a box in the garage with all the stuff I used to use at the old Met Stadium when the Vikes played there and had a real team. Broke some of it out when the Gophers moved to there new digs.

    Have a great time!!!!! Lambeau is a great experience for any fan.

    Don't forget the foam pad regards

    Wow. So jealous!
    The bathrooms are heated. Big blowers, blasting heat There is that, at least, if you need to get warm.

    No place like Lambeau. Have some fried cheese curds!
    GO PACK!!

    Definitely bring plenty of hand warmers. Battery heated hoodies are nice to have and not so bulky. Make sure you arrive at least 2 hours early to tailgate.

    50 yard line and 25 rows up that's some nice seats . it will be cold but once your in there and you will be inside the bowl and packed in there it won't be that bad . just dress like everyone said and you will be fine .we park cars in are yard I live couple hundred yards away from there. make sure you check out krolls restaurant for cheese curds and burgers.

    You will likely park in some guys yard.

    Abergluts is helpful!

    You are going to the Cathedral St. Vince built.
    Nothing else like it!

    See you there.
