Day 14 (Final Day of Driving)

14 days, 13 nights, 5,244 miles, a half dozen hotels, dozens of restaurant, hundreds of songs on the radio we never want to hear again, the Rocky Mountains, the swamps of the Bayou, the plains of Kansas, the big cities, the small towns, various parking escapades with a 30 foot trailer and van, and the sweltering heat and humidity of the southeastern United States in August and we made it! We’re alive! Tired and worn out, but extremely satisfied with the trip.
The trip went great. We didn’t have any car problems, device problems and no tickets! The trip really couldn’t have gone much better. We did come to the consensus that we won’t be going to any restaurants anytime soon. Getting back to a normal way of life will be our sole priority over the next several days. At some point soon we do have to get in the lab and unpack the equipment and look at the data.

On behalf of Seth, Jackie and I, we would just like to thank all of the turf managers and stadium directors for being so gracious. They were tremendous hosts and extremely helpful in the whole process. Whether it be lending us equipment or providing refreshments in the scorching Southern heat, all of the stadiums we visited made our jobs a lot easier. So, thank you so very much.

Hey guys, I really like your site. To be able to perform a job, but include a personal touch that is the envy of all is really impressive. I am on a similar quest trying to attend a game in each NFL stadium. Check me out at and e-mail me for link exchange.
