Same, re: gear.On gear wear, it probably wouldn't be a big deal. I would assume your either just a college fan in town, or maybe someones brother, cousin, etc. Wouldn't really care.
RTD and the Flatiron Flyer are fine, its just that you are at the mercy of their schedule/ routes. You want to stay later, do or go soemwhere else, it may not happen conveniently. Much easier if you have your own wheels and can go as you please.
That all sounds about right, with regards to public transportation. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something there. Planning to book a rental car since we'll have from 10am Fri until 7pm Sunday on the ground in Colorado.
As far as parking... it's a college campus on Saturday in the fall, so I presume that's an ordeal. Are the lots to the southeast (the lots in the 400's) impossible after a certain time? And if for some reason we do get there late, anywhere outside of the public lots we should aim for?
