Chuck Booth’s 2015 MLB Park Historical Road Trip

The GOAL: 183 Straight Days (every single day at least 1 gm) Of ALL 30 MLB Parks Trip In 2015 (216 Games) view full year schedule.

The CAUSE:  To Raise Money for Concussion Awareness (via Sports Legacy Institute. donate money here) Through Inspiring Others.

The week started off in New York City at 12:01 AM pn Monday morning,  I drove back to Sicklerville, NJ, completing 26 days where I drove almost 17000 Miles.  It was a crazy stretch of travel, but had a nice ending.

Monday afternoon came around the bend, and I was on my way to Baltimore.  The idea was to come back to Sicklerville every 2 nights, while blogging the other night at Starbucks in between.  The tolls on this roundtrip run around $30.

As soon as I made it to Baltimore, I stopped off at the White Marsh area (Exit 67) on the I – 95.  There is a way to avoid the last $4 toll towards the ballpark by taking the 40 West.

I know of this parking place at a casino nearby (for free) and watched the game.  It was an extra inning affair, and I was honestly beatdown from the previous week of traveling. Read the rest of this entry

Needless to say I am going to triumph the company Megabus here in this article.  For those that don’t know the story, they saved my trip from about a 185 games to about 215 – 220 games early in the season.

I bought half of my journey back then for $1 each, and did the same thing halfway through this odyssey.  With me being handicapped as a Canadian – for a plunging Canadian Dollar, this help me off set this.

Back in mid 2014, I saw the trend of the Loonie heading south, so I invested as much savings as I could – stuffing my American $ bank account.  So while I may have a tough time traveling to the United States past this year, I will make it through my trip.

In my original design of this concept, I planned to travel a lot of games on the Eastern Seaboard by car.  As I like to say “Gucci this, you see the price of that s-it!  So far, I have only made a few trips via my own vehicle.  The only drawback was I wanted to see 20 MLB games at Fenway, and now that total is done at 6 parks.

Anyways, Megabus created a whole new scope of savings I could use for Baltimore, Washington and the New York teams. Being stationed in Philly is the middle ground between all – and the perfect conduit.

This is the reason I am at 33 games for Nats Park and 20 for Camden Yards.  Coupled with Stub Hub cheap tickets, and you get the idea on how I have saved money.

I wrote a massive article on the Megabus company, and they actually sought out me as a potential partner – combining efforts to make this trip a media whirlwind.  Having a “PR” guy from the 3rd biggest Transportation in America bodes well for having requests come back.

By the end of the year, I will have 100 interviews done for this trip in all forms of social media.  This has been a great partnership, and I hope to work with them in the future.

megabus allows you to switch all itineraries (whether it is one journey or 20, for a $1 fee to trade in for other fares.)  I traded 20 trips - not to be used for $27 credit towards a new fare that was a peak trip.  It cost me just $3.00 to pull off the maneuver after a small booking fee was added.  These guys also don't require paper tickets (although you can use a computer printout of your reservation0.

Epic Failures Of The Travel Industry: Greyhound And Motel 6 Top My List

I have a projected budget of $22, 500 for this year long journey.  $300 of it went to Greyhound and $300 of it went to Megabus, but here is the difference.  I ended up doing only 16 journeys for Greyhound compared to 120 from Megabus.

Sure there is a built in advantage for those awesome $1 Megabus rides that I purchased yes, but another facet of Megabus that kicks ass would be their exchange policy.  I will divulge that in one moment. Lets just check out Greyhound’s archaic system. Read the rest of this entry

DAY DATE

So you think July was weird, well the last 2 months plus a little of October should shape up to be weirder.  I am sitting at Camden Yards last night – and my buddy Scott tells me he can’t make the game tonight – because he missed his flight on the West Coast.

I told him the odds of having something happen to you for the traveling the whole year go up exponentially when you are on the road.  I lose stuff pretty routinely.  Mostly I can recover these items, but some I like to wonder if “Casper, the un-friendly ghost” got his grubby little mitts on.

DAY DATE

So I was put to the test more in the last three weeks than throughout the whole trips.  I logged over 10000 Miles on the road from July.1 – July.14/2015.  It was worth it and I have had a few days of rest now to gather momentum for the second half run.

I have altered my schedule to accommodate a lot more rest in the 2nd half as I will be making lots of more media appearances on TV and radio.

I added some games in New York City, Baltimore and Washington,  and took some games away from Boston and Philadelphia.

As of this date, I have eaten 44 hotdogs, drank 48 beers, took down 100 energy drinks, and 4 gallons of coffee.  I have  logged 45,000 Miles by air, ground and public transport.  I have used 22 of 40 free rental days.  The Buick Verano I just returned put on 12,500 Miles of that alone.  I now have a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze for the 2nd half that I will venture on similar mileage with..

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – June 20, 2015

Oriolesphoto

I am still in Pullman Washington and I am in love with the Northwest.

A-Rod hit a homer for hit #3,000. I explain proper etiquette for catching a home run ball. But I make an exception for the guy who caught A-Rod’s homer.

Then I praised the Yankees ability to celebrate their own, except for A-Rod.

It is a living in the past present and future Episode 968 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The 30 MLB Park tour by travel or air is one of the most adrenaline filled chases one can endure. It is like the Amazing Race, meets Survivor, against Planes, Trains and Automobiles.  But even if you just love to travel to a few games each year, or maybe can't get away from your town, but want to know when and where everyone is playing.  The MLB Reports has you covered for all 2430 games in 2014, the ALL - Star Events, and Post Season to come after that.
