No need for sweatshirts, John Lewandowski and Jane Check are leaving the cold and headed to Glendale, Arizona.

"Looking forward to the 63 degrees it is supposed to be tomorrow," said John Lewandowski.

But most importantly...

"See the Packers hopefully win," said Lewandowski.

And this trip out of Austin Straubel Airport is special.

"I have never, this is the first time ever I have been somewhere to see a Packers game and a playoff game, "said Jane Check.

Some fans are already thinking about traveling to California to see the Packers in the Super Bowl. Those packages go on sale Monday if the Packers win Saturday.

"Last time we had the possibility of being in the Super Bowl we had already sold out eight full aircrafts before we knew we were actually in it, " said Denissen.

"Hopefully we come away with a win and come back much happier," said Lewandowski.
