I am thinking about traveling 10 hours to training camp. Has anyone ever gone? is it worth it? what are the chances for autographs?

Good for you!

I have never gone!

I would say it's worth it!

Chances of autographs are high!

Im thinking of driving over to the training camp this year also ! There are better times than others to get autographs. If you take a ten hour drive , I hope you plan on staying a couple of days !

My wife and I are thinking of bringing my daughter and the little Chief to at least the family fun night. Only a 7 hour drive...well, 6...well, 5.5 but that might get expensive...again

Depends on how fast you drive. I don't think there's anything wrong with how fast you can get to 65mph. :D

Very true! The problem happens in the amount of time you stay over the speed limit!:11:

I went two years ago, in '06. Autographs are very easy to get there. After almost every practice session, a specific group of players is assigned to sign autographs for a little while.

And on family night, all present players are available for an autograph, (a bit of crowd fighting) before the practices begin.

Photo opps are unlimited too.

I have taken my son in the past and it was very easy to get autographs. It was a fun time, but only 4 hours away for me.
