You guys are so silly.

The bimmer has been lonely at my sister's old house. I had to put it up for the winter. Once I bring it back home, I have a few things to get done.

"No", says the Canadian "A taxidermist doesn't drive a taxi. I mount animals."

I hope to see that E30 again this year. I didn't officially meet you but I drooled over your car while there (not trying to sound creepy...I've just always loved E30's)

Well maybe this year I'll be on HFP and summer tires

So far I've only experience the dragon on stock Si suspension and the stock all seasons. This year, I will either be...
a) stock suspension + all seasons
b) stock suspension + summer tires
c) HFP suspension + summer tires

that's not a bad idea. Stand up, state your ID, name and vehicle.

... and if need be, we'll get GeezerSi to sing this Spice Girls song to you

roughly....

hotel 3 nights - ~250 after taxes
gas - depends on distance. I say plan on driving a 400 miles while there
food - how much do you eat? you can bring your own. The food at the lodge is very good but a bit pricey, but if you calculate driving distance and time to get to the closest town for fastfood or whatever, the lodge prices seem very good then.

Sharing can reduce costs. set up a group for a room or lodge, you can reduce those costs. In some cases, I've seen people who will double/triple up in a car on certain days. This can save on gas money.

I am one of the worst case scenarios. I always travel alone, take a room myself. My travel to, around and back total at least 1700+ miles over 5 days. I'm guessing I spent between $900 to $1000 last year.

I would guess that someone who lives closer, splits lodging costs, and stays less days can easily cut that in half or better.

I think I did it for under 200 including gas last year. Stayed two nights.
That's splitting a room.
