Also, if anyone has a better suggestion of where to tailgate that will allow enough room for a 16' cargo trailer and a few tents, please let me know
A BAR....average temp in Dallas for end of Aug is 95 degrees. You are in a concrete parking lot so you are getting burned from above and roasted from below. YOU DO NOT want to spend the entire day in that atmosphere.
There are bars within a few blocks of the lot--go there during the peak heat and head to your spot about 4pm
Oregon game had to be near a 100 degrees and no clouds. Was in the lot for about 2 hours and even that sucked. Then your get dehydrated and end up buying 8$ Coors Lite aluminum bottles inside.
Just pony up some extra cash--spend it at the bar and save your ice chest beer for the post game celebration.
