Hello....
Anyone "flying solo" in the Woods and looking to cut down on room expenses? Count me in, please. I'd prefer to spend the extra cash on a new Rev or some other goodies.

I took the time off to go this year but the way the gas prices are going it looks like I may not attend after all.

So far it looks neck and neck between fuel costs and room for 4 days being about equal, that could buy quite a few kites.

We'll see.

You're right...but what a time it will be to fly with the gang, meet everyone, ...and the laughs... if the Rev Clinic is a preview...watch out!

I budgeted for $5.00/gallon for Diesel @ 13mpg (towing a 31' trailer cuts down on mpg). Even so it's cheaper for me to tow the trailer up than to rent a hotel room.

My biggest expense is that I am paying for a rental car, fuel, food, and extra$$ for my sister to drive down from NYC to take care of my dogs for the long weekend so that my wife can attend with me.

I forget what Diesel cost last year but even if it was $2.00/gallon less I would be looking at a $60 increase in costs.

Now, if FortFlyer shares a hotel room with Love2Fly (check with Paul D. to see if she snores). that would save enough to pay the fuel increase for the trip.

I am looking forward to going and having a great time flying with my friends (and that does include Antman)!

Hi Alden
...and wouldn't you like to know :innocent: :devil: :lips: ...
Seriously, I thought about going to Virginia Beach this weekend, 725 miles, roughly, each way...it would be over $200 in gas...Unfortunately, the bigger obstacle is my back and sitting that long...maybe next year...
See you in Wildwood.

Guys if you think fuel is an issue in the US it is almost 5 per imperial gallon here, that is 8 pints in case the measurements are different.

Would be near $10 per gallon to you.

In my car that journey would cost around 250 or abour $500.

Oh well, our roads are better than yours, no on second thoughts they are not.

One thing about fuel, if you need / want to make the journey, you got to pay for it.

I tried to post this a while ago but my lovely Wife kicked me off the PC.

You wouldnt catch me in a little, economical Japanese car. Got too many Land Rovers to choose from.

Well, if it gets to $10/gallon here then I would leave the trailer at home, pile into the Mini and rent a hotel room...

I guess my 6'2" 250# body looks pretty funny to some people as I climb in and out of the Mini but I love the 32.5 mpg it is giving me going back and forth to work!

Hi Guys...

OUCH! :big_evil: ... that sucks...big time. You are right, though, those of us that want to go out and do, will! ...and not in little match box cars...when at all possible... Has it recently spiked, like here? I know it's been around $5.00/ gal, roughly, for a long time.
Happy driving and more importantly, HAPPY FLYING :rev_clockwork:

I would never subject anyone to my earth shattering snoring, apparently from what I hear the only suitable roomie would be fellow wall banger Weider :kid_devlish:

Well we'll see what happens.
