    BCS travel plans

    What's everyone's plans for the BCS game?

    Flights have gotten expensive and full so we're flying Mobile to Fort Myers Friday and driving over to Miami Saturday morning. Driving through the Everglades should be interesting.

    We're staying at the Loews on South Beach Saturday to Tuesday.

    We have three tickets in section 453 Row 5.

    Can't wait!

    Flying ATL-PBI Friday to Wednesday, staying at Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Marina. Don't have any tickets and probably won't be able to afford any . Going to check out the game atmosphere and do some SCUBA diving in the area.

    I sadly canceled my air that I booked early to Ft Lauderdale after the TX A&M loss. Then the air fares went way up after that game. So I booked my air to the Orlando airport because it was a lot cheaper. Same with the hotels. The Notre Dame fans yanked up the rooms. I will be staying at the New Casablanca Hotel on the Ocean at Miami Beach. Might be a bad selection on the hotel but many of the rooms are already booked up. I have tickets so good there.

    I'll swap my nice Marriott hotel for your tickets!

    My wife and I were able to go to Pasadena for the championship game (while we were students at the time) because her uncle gave us tickets for Christmas. He's made some sort of a weird hint recently about it (before we'd beaten UGA on Saturday), and so if we were to get tickets, we'd probably just drive the day before, and drive back the day after.

    I'm on the "Travelin' With The Tide" game-day charter. Fly in Monday afternoon, collect #15 at Sun Life Stadium, head back to the airport and fly back to Birmingham to sleep (a little) in my own bed. Just a pure business trip!

    I had the airline on the phone the second we stepped foot out of the Georgia Dome. Tickets were booked before we got onto Marta . Generally Ft. Lauderdale is cheaper and Spirit Airlines is CHEAP out of Atlanta. The only catch to Spirit is that you pay for every little thing. There aren't any free checked bags or carry on bags. Plan to pack light to reduce the cost if you fly with them.

    I know a lot of Bama fans who are staying in Key West then driving up. We thought about doing that. Will be fun down there
