I've recently moved from the Bay Area to a place called Dayton, OH. It's about 70 miles Northeast of Cincinnati. I've been starving for A's games ever since I got here. It's nice to finally have a job and all, but it sucks to not be so close to the Colliseum anymore.
Anyway, I noticed on the AN map that was so well done not long ago, that I am the only Dayton ANer. I've been planning on trying to get to a game either in Detroit (which is about 3.5 hours away) or Cleveland (which is also 3.5 hours away). Unfortunately, since I've just moved here, I haven't found any A's fans to go to any games with me. And since I live so far away from those cities, the few friends and co-workers I've met thus far, are pretty unwilling to go that far away and possibly miss work. Both series are during the week, not the weekend. I, myself, will have to miss work as well, which can be quite tricky since I'm a medical resident.
My question is are there any ANers out in Cleveland or Detroit willing to go with me or let me tag along? I've contemplated going by myself, which I've never done. Have any displaced ANers ever gone to a game by themselves? I don't especially mind going by myself, but I don't exactly relish it either - being surrounded by an opposing team's fans with no back. What do you say?
