RichH – Might I suggest we meet at the Marriott Courtyard (973-770-2000) just off Exit 30 on Intestate 80. It’s accessible whether heading west or east and avoids all the traffic along the stretch of highway running through the Caldwells and Fairfield. Heading west, you’d take Exit 30 (Rt. 615) and head north for approximately 1/4 mile and turn left onto Seasons Drive. The hotel is right there at the intersection of Howard and Seasons. I’ll wait for you in the lobby.
TMH – Not that familiar with the rest stop you chose, but when viewing it on Mapquest, I couldn’t tell for sure if it was accessible from both the east and from the west. Can you confirm?
I will source the tickets. No problem.
TMH, I do plan on attending the Bryant game and look forward to meeting you. I’ll be in Section 4 / Row EE / Seat 1.
