It was a cool 70° as we arrived at my parents house to get the car loaded. Kenny Chesney's Boys of Fall started playing as I turned on my parents street, it was perfect. We were on the road around 9:30. I wish I would have taken a picture of the packed car. We didn't take that much stuff to the beach for a week with 6 people. Dad could barely see out the back window. I couldn't help but smile as we headed down. It was so fun to see all the fans with their flags flying headed to the same place we were. My grin grew bigger and bigger the closer we got. I was practically giddy by the time we reached the driveway of my sister and brother's house. We got everything unloaded and started putting everything out. Our fellow tailgaters soon started pouring in with their new gameday gear and covered dishes. I'm surprised my face doesn't hurt from all the smiling I did.

Please notice the circled sign in the top left of this photo. It says "Bullet is Here" on one side and the other side says "Bullet is NOT Here" This was a very effective way for Bullet to let all his fans know if he was at the tailgate or currently away from the tailgate.
