It's because of your GDAC donation (the $50 for each seat) that you receive the parking.
If anyone ever needs extra's, please let me know (I have two seats). I only get to 1-2 games per year due to work and distance. I also sit in the Upper Deck for the same reasons as GDG.
Dane96 sits right by me, Click and Jimbo (and maybe others). I feel like we have the best seats in the house. Right on the 50 yard line nice and high. See everything. I've sat in the lower level for the spring games and I can't see crap on running plays.
I promise to behave. lol.
Since there's just the two of us it's not a burden, but I could see where it would be prohibitive if there was a brood to bring along. There should be some sort of youth pricing to try and build up the fan base for future years.
We've found the berm a good solution for kids. Tickets are cheaper and many kids aren't great about sitting in one spot for a long time. On the berm they can wander and roll down the hill. Sight lines aren't quite as good and you do miss Eli yelling at the quarterback but hey, you can't have everything.
