    We just purchased a new Class C motorhome and are thinking of driving down to a game this fall; probably Homecoming. We've never done this before so not sure about the process for getting a tailgating spot. Any advice, recommendations, directions, etc.? Thanks and Go Gators!

    Directions? If you're driving from the north you'll need to take either 75, 95 or 301.

        By fall, gas will 8 dollars a gallon, the war will have been going on for several months. Those without their "Covid Passport" won't be able to travel. So you probably shouldn't have a problem finding a spot if you can make it there.

              3 replies in and we already have a Political Take :lol: I love it. Now we need the Warning label on the thread title.
              I’m sure Gov. DeSantis will have no problem letting RocketCity in with or without his WuFlu shot but Fuchs & Stricklin will require his vaccine card in hand.

                This anecdote will probably be of no use whatsoever, but when we went to the Auburn game in ‘19, one of Mrs. G’s sorority sisters took us to meet her Aunt and Uncle who were in an RV parked off of Gale Lemerand, south of Museum. According to them, the RV folks were getting fewer options each year and the lot they were was slated to not be available in the future. No idea how accurate any of this was.....

                Here’s a link to some info.....

                  Unfortunately, per the Game Day Parking website, you have to go to at least 4 home game to get an RV spot. :cry:

                  I’d PM @Gatorphan . He’s the expert on RVing on game days.

                      Free RV parking was moved from Fifield Hall to Microbiology last year. They now have the new lot for baseball between those two buildings, so there should be plenty of free RV space available this year.

                        Apparently there are some cozy spots under the 75 overpass. They seem to be in high demand.

                              If you take 301 from Baldwin to Waldo, don't worry about your speed, except in Starke. You can make up time easily the rest of that stretch.
