Hi everyone! This season I am going to see all 30 on a 2.5 month road trip with my friend Phillip! We will definitely need places to stay and people to teach us all about each park=]
We plan on writing a book after as well!
Check out our video about our book/project and tell me what you think!!

Awesome! I did 5 cities, 5 stadiums, in 5 days one time (NYY, Pitt, Phil, Clev, and Wash) just driving it and wingin it and just slept at rest stops along the PA turnpike. Sometimes sacrifices must be made for the greater good of achieving your dreams lol! I'm so happy you guys will be able to achieve your dream of all 30 this year! Hope to see you guys out there on the road!

Very cool thank you so much for your pledge! We have most living arrangements made and are just going to wing it on the other days. Between the 2 of us we have a lot of friends and family around the country. We are also using a site called CouchSurfing.org yo should check it out.

Awesome! I will certainly try and tell everyone I know about it! So you guys already have living arrangements made for all of the cities you're visiting then? I'm actually looking to try and join you guys on the first two weeks of the trip from 4/1-4/11, but it's going to take a huge amount of conning of my boss by my awesomeness to swing getting the first ten working days of April off even though I have enough paid leave to cover it. I will let you know tomorrow afternoon if he approves it!

Well the way Kickstarter works is actually pretty cool. They use a no risk method so if we do not hit our goal, none of our backers are charged the money, and we don't have to give out any rewards. The good news is our trip is funded so we are still going on it. We decided to use Kickstarter as a way to fun the publishing of the book! We really hope we can make that happen so make sure you tell everyone about it!

I will definitely check it out Reachelle! I'm sure I'll be able to schedule some games that coincide with your schedule. I live and breathe baseball in the summer. I also plan to support your book project! That's totally an awesome idea! I can't be an upper upper tier donater but plan to pledge 50 bucks. What happens if you don't hit your goal though?

Hey Reachelle, I'm going to do like 8-10 parks this year myself, maybe I'll see you guys out on the road... I'm trying to do Toronto, St. Louis, Miami, Detroit, new Yankee Stadium, Nationals Park, Cincinnati, Kansas City, and Arizona. I don't have any hard dates yet, but if you get some first let me know if you want to meet up and I can schedule a trip on those days. As far as places to stay or things to do, I just made contact on Facebook with this die hard baseball fan named Alicia. She runs a blog http://ballparksonabudget.wordpress.com/ where she talks about how to save a lot of money that would be spent on hotels on trips like that. She talks about cool places to see in each city and local breweries to hit up. She went to 29 games last year so she definitely gets around lol. Feel free to check out her blog for some suggestions. Either way Happy Chasing this year!

Hi Jim! We definitely want to meet you! We do not know where we will be staying just yet but we are always open to a tour! Let's keep in touch through twitter and make sure we get back in contact when April comes around.
