What should I expect at training camp

Okay I live kinda far away from training camp (about 4 hours) I live in South West Virginia. I am planning on taking a half day of work on weds the 11th and catch the 4:30 practice. It would be completely unredskin of me if I did not atleast catch one of Joe Gibbs training camp. But I do want to have a good experience and would love to get some autographs and good views of the field. So my question is does anyone who has already been to training camp have any tips?

Get there as early as you can, bring water and dress appropriately for the heat.

Get there as early as possible to get the best seats. You can get a pretty good view if you get there early, but if you don't it can be a pain trying to jockey for a good view.

Also, bring a beach chair or you're feet will hurt.

Bring a SMALL cooler with water, they are charging $3 for soda and $3 for water.

Bring a camera with a ZOOM lens. I brought my digital with its crappy zoom and I was screwed.

sunglasses and a visor are pretty important... a chair is kinda a hindrance, only bring it if you can't stand up for 3 hours... 40-50-40 yard lines are the best view... when i went gibbs came down to talk to the crowd around the 50 yard line and signed some stuff there. You definately want at least a couple bottles of water, the weather here has been hot and extremely humid.

A cool towel!

A cool wet, towel around your neck, or a Frozen Icepack in your shorts might help! It is not only hot, but muggy here in SE Va., and Reston is only a couple of degrees cooler than here. If there is shade, stay as near it as possible.

Take in lots of water, or refreshments.

depends on how good of seats you want... I showed up 75 minutes early to the 31st and got right up to the mesh barrier... The 11th should have less people, but people can be very hard to predict
