I prefer the Hampton or Hilton Garden but will go wherever you guys decide.
Wait, a fire?
Well you know it wasn't me as I wasn't there. :wink:

OK, how much is a taxi...or can we get one from the hotel?
We will probably be in my car... I don't mind driving... Rather save the $$ for more adventures... Just don't put gallon jugs of booze in the back of the hatch without telling me... :oops: :oops:

I always want to stay at Comfort Suites Frisco over any other motel if we can make it happen. Can't beat walking distance.
Ok, lets do it then! And then its MORE STEPS!!
SO, are we feeling this is a reliable tip? First WEEK or first Weekend? We really need to visit with friends and family while we're there this year so we will be staying at least a week.
Don't know how reliable this is... We just like planning.. Hey it could end up being another Hoot Island for all I really know!! I'm just ready for him to start announcing stuff!!! [smilie=superkewl.gif]

I was down in Frisco, TX this past weekend to watch my Bison play in the FCS National Championship. I had a blast tailgating and it reminded me of a mini Buffett tailgate. I met the mayor of Frisco and he raved about the Buffett tailgate and revenue it generated for Frisco. I asked if he was going to be playing again and he just smiled. So when I returned home I open up the local newspaper and I read this, "For Frisco, Bison Crowd takes a Back Seat to Jimmy Buffett."

I would like to give a special shout out to Korvette and you, for building up the pheverd phit I am currently enduring. Stalking twitter, news, info, margaritaville, cnn. Anybody who can give me a bloody date.
I'm starting the "secret" party stash now. Booze can be bought there. I'm sure there some more blinging to do on this table, fabric to pick, perhaps installing the battery powered lights.

I've never before bought travel insurance....does it make sense??

If I book the flight now, it'll be $210....travel insurance is $11

If I wait until an oPHicial date is announced....which as we know could take an extra month or TWO the flight alone will be more than $225.....

Anyone use travel insurance with Frontier Airlines before? Should I just book it now with the add-on??



Upon further review, here are the only acceptable reasons to cancel my flight: This policy covers if you have an unforeseen sickness, injury or death of yourself, a family member, a travelling companion or business partner. The policy also covers for being subpoenaed, jury duty, terrorist incidents, and unforeseen traffic accidents

I guess that won't work... Have you checked Spirit Airines?? They fly out of Denver. I use them to find super cheap flights to Vegas!! I've done round trip to Vegas for around 90.00 before. They are a little strange.. no reserved seat.. no luggage (backpack ok if it fits under seat) etc. but works for me and my budget!!

Can't wait!
I have tons of friends up in DFW, so finding a place to stay is no big deal for me.
Frisco has been the biggest/best tailgate I've been to.

I have not heard of Spirit Airlines.

Cheapest, I'd have to arrive Wed, May 1...depart Tue, May 7
and it would be $120.....

$30 More if I leave Monday (arriving Wed)
$80 More if I leave Sunday (morning) and arrive Thursday (evening)
$100 More if I leave Sunday (night) and arrive Thursday (evening)

Cheapest plane means MORE hotel/couch time....I'm gonna need CHEAP (or $0 :D) for hotle/couch too.

Darned air travel!!

I was originally thinking Thursday afternon through Sunday night....3-sleep over nights, 2-days off work.

I was really hoping for Starplex again. The venu is so much better for the show, lawn people & all. But I won't complain b/c there will be a TX show. Frisco tailgate is cool, but I still prefer Hoot Island. Either way we will be there.

I agree with Kelli.
I like Frisco, but it is just sooooo big. There are people every year that I don't see.
Hoot Island is our little piece of heaven....small, intimate, great group of Phriends.
