The 2014 Smokies schedule is out, so I looked it over to try to pick the dates for my annual visit.

 

Normally I like to visit Tennessee for two consecutive games, the last game of one series and the first game of another series.  That way I can see two road teams in addition to seeing the Smokies twice.

 

Unfortunately, with the exception of April 13 and 14, that is impossible this  year.  The Smokies only have two consecutive home series twice, and the other one is split by the All-Star break.

 

Suddenly I'm not sure what my plan is.

 

I haven't ruled out visiting another team this year, either.  I'm still looking at options.

Have you looked at combining a Smokies home game with an Iowa away game? I know it's not AA, but the Nashville Sounds are in the PCL and are only about 3 1/2 hours away.

Sweet.  It's Iowa's turn to head out west.  They'll be in Fresno and Sacramento from 6/9-6/16.  Depending on who's on the team, I could see running up to Sac (1.52 hrs) for a weekend day game.

Alcantara and Villanueva almost certainly will be.  Likely Hendricks and Jokisch as well.  Probably Lopez.  Probably Szczur.  Likely Ha.

It's def. on my radar.  Lots depends on next summer's camping plans.  I'm just glad Iowa isn't coming during Tahoe week.  That would be a shame, but, man, you can't skip Tahoe in the summer.  No sir.

Wow, so you're a hippy that is also a yuppy?  I am surprised that the universe hasn't torn itself apart because of that paradox.

 

So noone is getting on board with my idea of just coming to Iowa?  I mean, comeon, it's Iowa the summer.  You could go outside and, literally, watch the corn grow on the right day.  What more do you need from life?

I will come to Iowa as soon as you learn that "no one" is two words, not one.

Wha?  Going to Tahoe makes me a yuppie?  Do you know what Lake Tahoe is like?  Fucking heaven, man.  It's heaven.

 

Tim has seen and met my camping crew.  There ain't a lotta yuppie in that crowd.

Nice photo!  But the important question is:  Did you visit the PONDEROSA?  (is that still even there?)
