For the third straight year... we are organizing a big crew of Kansas City Cyclones to roll into Ames for the game via a bus (see our ride at kcpartybus.com). Any advice on where this beast is going to be able to park? We don't mind leaving KC early to get there in time... last year we left my house at 3:30 AM (we pay for a driver) - the first guy claimed "All In" in the "back of the bus" card game at 4:15 AM - and we made it to Iowa City in plenty of time to grill a bit before game time.
Again - we have created high expectations for this crew - and I am nervous about parking too far away from the excitement due to the difficulty getting an RV parking pass from JP unless you buy a tent ($3500 we don't want to spend). Am I missing something?
Id leave at 2:30am this year so you can make the 3-3.5 hours to AMes in time for the lots to open. Hoewever i have noticed the non official ISU lots are opening a lil earlier than the Hilton/Trice donor lots.
So you guys probably wanna get into Ames Friday night, sleep in the bus and be there at dawn.
There are RVs that park in the lot along Elwood. At the corner of Elwood and S.16th, that is mostly students, but further back (south), there are plenty of busses and RVs in there. The lots open 6 hours before gametime, but for that game, I'd get in line at least two hours before that.
Yeah, this is the first year we will have an RV and plan to camp out the night before games. Too much $ to justify the RV parking pass so we'll just be up really early to get in line to get a prime spot in the grass lot.
With all the construction going on at Vet Med right now will you still be able to park there overnight?
