EDIT: Talked to the Boss this morning... I **AM** going to New Mexico and he agreed to the timing of August 20-24 for me to be working there! So, it's OFFICIAL, I *AM* gonna make a run at all 30 this season! Now I just need Chuck's schedule to go smoothly, or for him to have make up games where I need to pick up games as well and all will be golden!
Time to SEEALL30(.com)! :)
In addition to going out on the road with Chuck Booth next month, I have a possibility of hitting the following schedule. There are a few things that need to be tied up first for me to be able to do it, but hopefully it will happen. The biggest hurdles are not knowing when Chuck will wrap up his run, but there is a good chance that if he has makeup games to do April 27-30, that they will be East Coast parks, maybe STL, and ones that I could knock off my list as well. The next hurdle is for the August/September portion of the time. It is assuming that my boss will be sending me to New Mexico again this summer to teach at our office down there *AND* that he will allow me to do it in late August (20-24). I hope to find that out soon. If all those align, then my schedule to SEE ALL 30 this year is set! Thanks to Chuck for planting this seed in my head and for helping with the scheduling :)

If I see any games this year, it will be a miracle...my wife has assured me that I won't be doing any extended trips with the little one in the home. But I may snooker a Toronto or Cincinnati fact-finding mission! Shhh...
@Craig - yep. Had ZERO plans to do anything this year other than Safeco. Then Chuck and I got to talking.. and well, here I am :)
Wow, incredible! Wasn't it you a few months ago that said you weren't seeing any parks this summer?!
Man, you guys smoke me at this stuff...I was all happy about touring Yankee Stadium and Citi Field in the same day!
@Kurt - that was actually Chuck's idea. I will be driving from Detroit that morning to pick him up at the airport in PGH, go to the game with him at PNC, then driving him back to the airport. After I drop him off, I am headed to Cleveland, should get me in there just a few minutes after 6pm. After the game, I drive back t o just a few minutes south of Detroit to pick up Chuck and we head to Cincy. :)
Going to do PNC Park and Progressive Field in the same day...that is most excellent. Never thought of trying that, and I suppose I could living near Philly.
Will do, just gotta corner the boss about NM. I have heard from 1 of my office managers down in NM that he told her (3 weeks ago) I will be down there again this year, but he hasn't said a word to me... not that I see him often either. Even if he sends me, its a matter of the timing as well... I think I can get him to agree to that though :)
Very cool...let us know when this is official!
From May 1st on, no. Just me. Driving. :) Of course any chasers out there that wanna meet me at any of the games, come on out :)
Are you serious, Ken?! Wow! Anyone going with you?
