The whole travel industry works on the 24 hour clock.  This actually works to the MLB road trip world out there.  During my year long trip, I mastered the art of the 24 hour clock.

My favorite move was to rent a car for Friday – Sunday, that would only cost two rental days at a car company.  Most of the time it would include leaving for a Friday game at 5:30 – and the car was due at a 5:30 on Sunday.

This is great for jamming at least 3 games in the 48 hours, and sometimes you can do a doubleheader on the Saturday.

I told my buddy Scott of breaking down the cost of watching baseball games into individual innings – kind of like bowling frames. Read the rest of this entry

On my year-long road trip I vowed not to spend much money on the food at the Ballparks.  I ended up only spending around $250 for 224 Games on the road.  So where did I eat?

If I wasn’t at a home base somewhere, or at a free breakfast from a hotel, it was usually Subway, Wendy’s, Walmart (yep, they have food too), McDonalds, Burger King or Little Caesars Pizza.

Since I didn’t want to enter the USA with a wad of cash the several times I took entrance at the borders, my wallet was stacked with Gift cards from these establishments.

I also downloaded all of their apps on my mobile phone to look for deals.

Subway was the clubhouse leader for meals eaten.  I bought 12 – $50 gift cards from this restaurant for this journey.  Check with your local chain, but every time I did this I was able to secure a free foot long premium sandwich.

My food bill was saved a great deal by eating 12 meals on Subway just for buying $50 gift card on a dozen different occasions. Read the rest of this entry
