400 bucks on Continetal from Houston. You would probably use almost that much in gas alone.

Are you using the Texans package or winging it when you get there?

I am winging it...flight booked, hotel booked, and car booked. Will either get tickets at the stadium or StubbHub.

I've never been up that way so the scenery of driving might be nice. I haven't booked a hotel yet...
my brother in law is splitting driving with me so it should be cake compared to two plane tickets...I'll check in and out as the times get closer for the best price

I bought my tickets on www.titletowntickets.com . They are reasonably priced and I just received my tickets last week. They also sell tailgating passes. The wife and I are flying in on Friday the 5th and leaving on Mon the 8th. :beerfunnel:

In December the 'scenery' is frozen farm land and lakes covered with snow (or not). And a 100+ mile drive, if it's dry, is no problem. But if you happen to hit a weekend when it decides to dump 6 inches or more of snow - and it blows - driving can really suck once you get outside the metro areas.

Be especially careful driving if you aren't used to sub-freezing conditions. After living in Texas my whole life, I found I am quite horrible at driving in the snow/ice

Probably the best way to go is to get a flight into Milwaukee and then drive to your hotel. Book your hotels as soon as possible. You sure dont want to be driving from Milwaukee, or Osh Kosh on a wintery day. We booked our hotel in GB in April right after the schedule was released.

You can get tailgate tickets up there pretty easily. They cost about $25 for all the beer, screwdrivers, bloody mary's and brats.

If you go up the day before the game or plan to stick around until Monday you have to go to Krolls for their Butter Burgers.

I might just fly up there after thinking about how much snow there might be. Anyone have suggestions on good hotels?

After 2 hours on the phone (3 calls to India) and a trip to IAH, we're out. They gave me the wrong paperwork a year ago, thus no free flight.

As much as I would love to fly to Green Bay instead of to Ohio for Christmas, my mom would kill me :)

Can't make the trip, no funds. However a group of Raging Bull Tailgaters will be going and they are having someone drive our old cook trailer up there for the game. So keep an eye out if you see some Texans tailgating. Have safe travels and GO TEXANS!

Everyone that is going you are going to have a Blast. Hit up Krolls for some great burgers. If you are staying in Green Bay on Saturday and want a place to watch the CFB games head over to Stadium view and get some of the towers of beer. Spotted Cow is a brew up there that is pretty good.

Tilted Kilt is also a great place up there to catch a bite or get some grub.

Also there is a Bar at Lambeu called Curley's Pub that is int he Atrium you can head in there get some drinks look at the stadium etc.

If you are flying into Milwaukee head over to the Miller Brewery hit the tour and get a couple of free beers at the end.

I was up there a few years ago for a Sunday night game, it was 7 at kickoff and the beer was freezing shortly after getting back to the seats, Come to think of it so was the "hot" chocolate.
