Whatever time you’re planning on leaving, I’d leave 2 hours earlier. Just had dinner with some friends who are staying at a friends house in south Philly. It’s going to be mayhem trying to get into the city.

Any guesses to the ‘few surprises’ for the parade?

Btw... the price gouging going on is revolting.  I know they’re in business to make a profit but come on.

$4 for a copy of Monday's newspaper was ridiculous.

$40 well spent.  :paranoid

I am trying to figure out how I can make it

Flight would be about 2000

But there are no hotels obviously. I could get to my mom's place in Phoenixville tonight but I have no clue how I could get into the city tomorrow. RR is going to be a hot mess

Any ideas?

If I have a 530pm return flight do you think I will have trouble making that?

no you can easily make that....you also dont need to stay to the end of the parade....whatever spot you get youll get to see everyone go by and then its over...no real difference than any other parade

honestly i wouldnt even come up for it...parades imo are overrated.....its much more important to be in the city for the game....you dont get to see a ton at the parade....in the end its fun but you really will be spending thousands of dollars just to say you were there....which is pretty silly imo.....youll see a lot more of it on the nfln broadcast

My friend was just on the news, she got up at 3:30 am to get tickets and they were out. She waited and they eventually brought more but still public transportation is already a mess. If you know anyone in the city ask if you can crash at their place tonight. Tomorrow is going to be bedlam.

will you be there?

I'd leave tonight at 8pm and land after midnight and then have to Uber to Wilmington that would be about $1800ish for plane and Uber I'm guessing

Hotel would be about $200 for six hours

Train into the city is $65

so yeah I'd be in for a little over $2k

Plus with the weather up there today I'm seeing some issues on flights and if those get pushed back then I would be farged

That's an awful lot of money to stand in the cold for a couple of hours.  Seriously, IGY was right.  Being in the city and especially on Broad Street after the win was something that I'll never forget.  Pretty much the bucket list item to end all bucket list items for this boy.

yeah im going but its also not costing me anything....i have amtrak pts....no farging way id go for that money....

and until after they won i wasnt 100 percent sure i needed to go for any amount

dont get me wrong i had a blast at the phillies parade but i wouldnt travel long distance or pay a lot to go to a parade...for me personally its not a must do like watching the game in the city and witnessing the aftermath of the win is

at the parade the whole thing is fighting crowds then the floats go by in like 20 minutes or whatever it is then its over...especially for you who will be leaving right after its over you wont even get to spend the rest of the day/evening in the city at bars with people which might be more fun than the parade itself
