    Myself and the family are heading over for the Fins game from Australia which is a massive trip but well worth it to see another game. Been to Gillette three times before (Jets and Fins in 2007 and the 2008 blowout of Arizona in the snow in 2008) when I lived in the UK.

    Have never had the opportunity to tailgate before as I have always had to get the train from Boston. This time we have decided to stay at Patriots Place so will get the opportunity to take it all in before the game starts without having to rush around. The flexing of the game is probably better for this as well.

    Not sure how I will recognize anyone but would love to say hi to any fans from the board. This is my fifth Patriots game now (went to Wembley in 2009 as well) and I have not seen a loss yet so fingers crossed for another resounding win.

    Merry Christmas to Pats fans all over the world :)

    No Jersey Selected

    What's the matter, couldn't fly here from somewhere far like New Zealand?

    Thanks for the good wishes guys. About to head to the airport in London for my flight. Looking like some potential snow again which would be fun.

    Will walk around pre game and check out the tailgating :)

    That is a massive trip. I can't imagine flying across the world just to see a pats game. :)

    If you can get hotel rooms in Foxborough the night before the game, it's well worth it. Getting to the stadium from Boston is a bit of a pain, unless you take the Pats train which is overcrowded and runs infrequently I hear.

    Dedication comes in many forms and most of us on here have our own stories but the distance you are traveling certainly expresses yours. From someone who hasnt missed a home game in a over a decade your dedication is noted.

    In Wrentham overnight and looking forward to tomorrow. It's been a long trip but well worth it. The snow is just a nice bonus for us:)

    Here's to a W tomorrow. Go Pats!!!!
