    with only so many people

    Hello everyone,

    From the book 99: Stories of the Game by Wayne Gretzky:

    "Every home team supplied the visiting team with an extra pair of hands to help out the trainers with equipment and sticks. After all, you can travel with only so many people. Edmonton did it, we did it in L.A., and Montreal did it."

    Does "you can travel with only so many people" mean that you can take only a certain number of people with you?

    Thank you.

    Yes. The team bus has a limited number of seats, and for longer journeys the team can only afford to pay for the bare minimum of flight tickets.
