I wanted to share my estimation of the cost of coming out to NH for PF this year.

The trip is from Big Rapids, Michigan which is about 1100 miles from Lancaster. The trip will take about 18 hours, or two days of riding, each way. Four days of travel. Jamestown NY is the half way point, which gives us about 9 hours per day of travel.

Hotel (Jamestown NY): $70 x 2 = $140

Camping: $25 x 4 = $100

Gas: 2200 miles / 45 mpg * $4.29/gallon = $210

Sub total: $510

The above doesn't even consider food, which I guess will be a least $40 a day for two people * 7 days = $280

Total: $790

This is about how much it would cost for me to actually move out to NH. I was thinking about moving out this year, but I don't think i can afford to attend PF and move out in the same year. I don't think I want to move out without first visiting, but maybe that is a luxury worth losing, considering the state (Michigan) that I am leaving...
