Is it too early to talk about 2014 tailgating? We're you able to find a new location to tailgate?

Never too early. Nothing set yet. There's nothing to be reserved so we'll be scoping out a few spots the first weekend and go from there. I'll let everybody know where we'll be. Stay tuned, and Hook 'Em!

Haha, I guess it's time to change my avatar picture. I'll miss my rotating pictures of Mack...

I assume nothing has changed as far as the TG setup. Everybody bringing the same as last year, like the tables, BBQ pit, canopy's etc...?

We have a reserved spot for the 1st 2 games in the lot across Trinity from the old spot. Map is below.

Yes, I would also assume we keep doing what we've been doing: we have a pit, some people bring meat to cook and others bring some snacks, sides, sweets, etc. I'll stock the supply boxes as usual. We'll ask for a donation as before for reservations and supplies and I'll send a separate email for that.

Supplies - I'll get the usual. Let me know if we've been missing anything

Tents - I have 3 total including Jose's. Allan usually has one or two.

Tables - I have 3 including Jose's and Matula's. Josh and Allan have one too.

TV - I have the TV and the old dish. Josh is researching options for the satellite box and possible dish upgrade to a Tailgater. We'll have one or the other, and LHN is now on Dish so that's something.

PIts - Grahmann's been the official pit supplier. Anybody else if welcome to bring something else if they want.

I'll be out of town all of next week. We can get into the details of week 1 after that...Hook 'Em!

Crasy, are going to pond off that sausage again to everyone? I'm ready for some TG'ing myself and look forward in seeing everyone. It's close enough to start figuring out what we are cooking and who's bringing what so we can prepare. A head count would be nice.

Made great sausage this past year and not much is left. And I cant say anything else.
Re: 2014 Tailgating

Jose, if you need some more sausage, I have some left. Just let me know where your cooler is and when you're not looking I'll just fill it up.

Back from a week in Corpus. Was hoping you all had it figured out by now. What pit are we going to have? Past few years we've done smoker and slow cooking on first game.

Also, we need something to put in our parking spots Friday after 6pm. Anybody in Austin have any cones or posts we can string some tape across. Kind of dumb we have to do this since it is reserved but they don't want to deal with any potential issue so say we have to "secure the spot".

As far as what time on Saturday, all I know is you can't drink all day unless you start early...

I'd say let's use the smoker. I got it all cleaned up and ready to go this weekend. I'll bring some type of meat product.

I have some ribs and the same deer sausage plus the cooking canopy. I need to check the other one to see what kind of shape it's in. It took a beating in Nebraska CWS where the wind was 30-40 MPH. I still have the cooking table. How much room do we have?

I'll bring some fajitas and sausage.
Re: 2014 Tailgating

I'll bring a pork product of some kind. Not much chatter on this board. I also sent out an email to a bunch of people letting them know where we'd be.

Besides the meat we need some bbq type sides maybe. Or just tortillas and bread. Of course condiments. And snacks, dips, sweets.

Not sure how the setup will look but I imagine we'll find a spot for any available tents. Going to be a hot one. Will have to get a feel for the layout on Friday. Any ideas for what to leave in our area over night. Anybody got a couple of sawhorses or something like that or some posts in cement or just traffic cones? Or an RV to park in the spot? smiling smiley

Looks like we got meat covered.

I'll do a side, plus tortillas/bread/condomints.

I don't have any cones or whatnot. Post in cement would be good to tie caution tape too. But I don't have those either.

Hey Brian, Can we rent a Outhouse now? What time in the morning? Maybe use some duct tape and put a "X" and label "RESERVED"!

Josh had the idea of putting some bricks in a couple of home depot buckets to weigh down and string some caution tape between them. This should work fine.

Also, props to Josh for upgrading his Dish equipment which included a new tailgate use receiver and a new dish. We did a test run last night to make sure it all worked and am happy to report we will now have Longhorn Network (and other less cool networks) at the tailgate in glorious HD. Suck it DirectTV users...

I won't be able to make to make the first two games due to my back. I've sold my tickets for next week but I still have four if anyone is interested for this week and is coming from Hallettsville. Just text or call me at 361 208-4211.

Have a great time.

I'll bring a bean dip as well since I don't see many snacks. I'm sure others will show up with stuff too. I think we're covered. Looking forward to it...

I'm doing guacamole too for a snack. Some friends will be stopping by too, and I think they'll bring something too.
