    Any advice is appreciated?

    I wrote my age because I have never hooked up a TV before at any of our previous tailgates and wanted to see if people could help out a fellow Jets fan. But if those are the mental images you get, then whatever floats your boat man;)

    If you can't get the antenna, throw some porn on there for us. It will confuse the hell out of everyone walking by. And give them something to talk about. ;)

    You guys are a bunch of wimps. I'm at the stadium now and am already 5 beers deep. And I thought I was running late!

    Just kidding. Looks like I'm driving in and tailgating with 3 others. I think we'll be leaving a little after 4 and getting there sometime before 5.

    What time do you all think one needs to arrive to be able to easily find parking? Coming in from Rt 3?

    Me n the boys will be arriving around 4:30. Fire up some meat on the grill, drink a few very cold beers. Might even bring the 13" TV and digital tuner to see the 4 oclock. Need an inverter though...

    What does the parking pass get you? Do you still have to pay the $25?

    I use a small flat panel with an HD capable antenna (Trek, I think) and it works like a charm... slingbox (which I also have) is not a viable option since you won't have a internet connection (too slow over 3G).

    Test out the antenna at home and re-program the channels in advance (sometimes it has to figure out what channels it has over the "AIR" (vs CABEL) connection. ALso bring the remote if you need to reprogram or do any setup once there... tricky without remote.

    Tailgating

    I'm setting up it my usual area outside Gate D in the "unlabeled" spots. It think it technically 18-something. Tossing around the idea of getting a room @ the Sheraton (I'm off Monday and live in PA), checking in at 3pm and heading over to the lot at 3:30pm. Still working on the menu. Waiting for a final headcount. Good eats and a chilly bevs!

    You forgot running the TV off a power source. Unless you have a small one that runs on batteries you will need a generator. (Honda etc)

    A power inverter might work but you risk a problem with the car/battery.

    Unless your TV antenna is good you need a combination of TV,
    receiver and antenna.

    Better you should walk over to someone parked nearby who will have a TV already set up w/ ST etc.

    [QUOTE=Big L;3426610]What does the parking pass get you? Do you still have to pay the $25?[/QUOTE]You MUST get a parking pass in order to park on stadium grounds. Otherwise they send you to Lyndhurst(no tailgating) and bus you over. No, they don't charge you again after buying the pass. Make sure it's displayed when you drive up to the toll gate. You can find one on the NFL Ticket Exchange via TicketMaster. If you're lucky you can find one for face value(abt $30 after fees).

    Yeah I've got the parking pass already, just making sure it wasn't just a pass to get in, then whack you for another $20 to ACTUALLY park...

    "Woody? Yeah, listen- we've come up with another great idea to fleece the fans. Remember those prepaid parking passes? Yeah, those are the ones. Well now we tell 'em that was just a pass to get through the gate TO the parking lot. Now, here's the best part - to actually STOP your vehicle on the asphalt, well now that'll be ANOTHER $20! Brilliant, isn't it?! Yeah, well, I can't take full credit for this one - those fvcknuts at JI really are smart!"

    Just a FYI to the tailgaters for Sunday... winds could gust over 30 MPH so tie down those tents. Going to be a big blow on the backend of the blizzard in northern NE....

    Flagman, you sound like you have some expertise here so would like to get your thoughts...

    I have been using tests at the games for years (Quick Shade)... in the past I had a 10x10 and never remember having any problems with the wind (only has to use the 5lb weights on the legs)... I recently upgraded (so I thought) to a new 12x12 model which has a much higher center top. And since using this one I have all kinds of problems in the wind to the point where I don't even set it up anymore... especially not with the sides which seems to make matters worse. I get there when gates open so I have a spot on the grass next to the fence which would give me options of staking and tying to the fence. I have looked at what others do (hanging weighs, tying to cars, etc).

    Would appreciate your thoughts on the best approach... will definitely want to use it with the sides and heater this week. Thanks!!

    Cinder blocks, coolers and dumbells work good for the area not tied to the fence. We have the garbage dumpster in our area and use that to tie to along with the blocks and coolers and whatever else we can find.

    Thanks, what type/size tents do you use, do you use side walls and has that caused any problems?

    we have 3 or 4 10x10 and sometime use walls, which we will try on Sunday if we can get them to stay, the west wind is a killer for us as we have full exposure to it.
