Mom and I left beaver county on Friday at 5pm. We Dropped off a cooler at Suzs and then headed to a very full RV lot. We were directed to aisle F at the far East side of the lot. After setup and a quick Walk around the lot. It was time for sleep.


It was time to tailgate for our carribean themed tailgate PSU vs Idaho. 79 to 7! my old RA friend Chad from Pinchot hall stopped by to say hi.. For breakfast, we sampled :
  • Corn waffles with pulled pork and fried eggs,

Joe Jonas was at the game and we saw him got by the tailgate in a golf cart Nick and I visited Smitty and sampled some Peanut butter porter. we played Day pigs and enjoyed the strawberry lemonade natty ice that eric brough. We had a Low country boil before game time. Total blow out game time. Post gaem, we nibbled on Jerk wings, beef pockets, Key lime pie and macaroons. Ended at 9pm. Nice temps, no rain.

BWW 19

As happens sometimes, blue white weekend was a week early this year due to Easter falling on the 3rd weekend of April. It was a wet and rainy ride on the way into Happy Valley, it was especially foggy around the town of Summit. The 4 RVs met at home depot just before 8 PM on Friday evening: Rich & Nell, Larry & Tiny, Matt & Kori and Alaina & I.

Since the RV lot was being parked back to front again, we ended up on RV west 1st with no one in front of us. Jeremy Miller stopped by on his way back from the gym. Alaina and I ordered Uncle chen's for dinner. The group enjoyed drinks and snacks in Rich & Nellís camper. Rich decided to use me as a teaching buddy for slow dancing. Kori and the rest of us were singing along to ďa star is bornĒ soundtrack. We finally went to bed around 1.

Rich and Matt drove over to Suzís house to join the car convoy and were parked in the first row West of press box spot 1436. Jeremy found us again before I texted him. Mandy also surprised us by being able to make it back from WV. Just like last year, it was beautiful weather for a spring game. We enjoyed many fan favorites during the day including:
  • Bacon
  • Sausage gravy and biscuit via Cari on the grill
  • Turkey club
  • Pierogies casserole
  • Cheesesteak dip
  • Mac and cheese
Our tailgate neighbors across the aisle were singing and doing shots on the top of each hour. A group of new tailgating were uphill from us and asking me all kinds of questions about how we keep everything organized and everyone together over the years.

During Game time coach Franklin awarded a Scholarship for touchdown. There was plenty of talk about the Star wars trailer for the last jedi. We also reviewed Maddy's tailgate notebook to discuss past tailgate favorites for the upcoming season.

The group packed up around 6 and I walked back to RV lot. We had lasagna and I got Cooler marinara due to leaking sauce bottle on the walk back.
