Since it is starting to feel like winter, I am day dreaming of spring training. Unfortunately, a trip to Fort Myers is not in the cards this year.

The last and only time I packed up my suitcase for Red Sox spring training was back in 2008. We didn’t get to see a game because the Olde Towne Team was playing in Japan. But it was cool hanging out at the minor-league complex. Ryan Kalish, Jed Lowrie and others were right next to me on their way to the practice fields.

If you are going to head south for the Sox, I have a tip and some other notes on travel:

* Do not stay near City of Palms Park. It is in kind of a sketchy neighborhood.

* If you have extra time, take the cruise to Key West. It is a wonderful and unique town in an increasing homogeneous America.

* Use a GPS to help find your way around.

* If you like to sleep when traveling like me, purchase a neck pillow. It makes sitting sleeping so much more tolerable. I am going to try the Smooth Trip Hedbed Inflatable one since it is hard to pack a pillow in your carry-on.
