Day Date, Venue, Opponents
FRI Aug.14, 2015 (The Rogers Center in Toronto), 7:07 Blue Jays vs Yankees *1/1 games this year there.
Blue Jays ticket – $11 (both Scott Bultman and I knew once the team acquired Tulo, tickets would be at a premium. We jumped at the tickets on Stubhub before the seller caught wind. Only wish we would have bought more. They are going for $66 each as a low for the 11 game win streak Canadian club)
PARKING: $6. yep. 0.4 miles away
Day Of Expenses:
GAS – $45
Tolls – $15
Method of Transportation:
I am taking an all night bus to Chicago after crashing on a friend’s couch for a few hours, and taking a quick shower on Minny.
Scott Bultman JR. returns to the streak for the first game since July 9th, but he and I will still see 14 more games together – including his 30th Park on Saturday at Camden Yards.
We meet near Union Station at 6:30, pick up my Canadian rental car, and I go to my home country for the only game this year. I do get to see my Yankees play.
Where I am headed to next?

Miles traveled thus far by all modes (58500 Miles). Before you say that is a lot, I did that many by air/ground in my 2012 World Record Streak.
