1st time tailgaters - advice needed
Myself (Canadian) and my wife (Norwegian) are new to Houston and have never been to an NFL game or even tailgated...and that needs to change.
For the upcoming seasons we've secured 4 x tickets and 2 x blue parking lot passes to the Jaguars game on Nov. 18th.
To make the game day & tailgating experience all the more enjoyable - we'd appreciate your input on the following:
1. We plan on arriving and setting up early...7 am? Any recommended areas of the blue lot to set-up in? We want to be close to the action...but perhaps not directly "in it".
2. I understand with 2 parking passes our "real estate" is limited to two 8 foot by 16 foot spots. Are there any restrictions to vehicle parking orientation? We are driving a Dodge Minivan (6 ft wide x 15.5 ft long). Ideally we would park the van sideways across the back portion of the two spots, and have the front for chairs, pop tent, small smoker, etc. Is this configuration possible?
3. We have a little baby girl...she will be 4 months old when game day comes on Nov. 18th. We'd love to take her along if possible - even ordered little ear protectors. Does anyone have any experience with bringing a baby along on game day?
Thanks in advance,
Jonathan & Marianne
