Re: how much $$$ did the Summit cost you?

Summit Registration: $175
4 nights at the Ampitheater Campground: $80
Beer and food to fill the cooler for the week: $60
Gas for a 600 mile round trip at an avg of 20mpg and avg fuel at $3.60: $108
Gas for ~100 miles of trail runs and getting back to Ouray at an avg of 15mpg and fuel at $4.09: $27

Grand total: $450

Unbeknownst to me at the time, there is free dispersed camping right next to the ampitheater, so I can do the same trip next year for $80 less.

Re: how much $$$ did the Summit cost you?

OK - I'll take a stab:

3036 miles (just there an back) @ ~16 MPG = approx. $665
Meals on the way and back (estimated) = approx $40 (over 4 days)
Hotel stay in Manhattan, KS for one night = $120
Twin Peaks for Summit (minus pitching in from my roomate) = $500
Registration (plus hat and trasharoo) = $255
Beer for beer exchange = $42
Beer/meals while in Ouray (estimated) = $200
Jewlery and pottery for my wife for leaving her home = $300
Fuel for trails (estimated) = $50
Shackle from TRD4U = $10
Water on the way and back = $10
Raffle tickets = $100 (yep, I wasn't "that guy" and I won nothing)

Total = $2292

I'm sure I'm deliberately forgetting a few hundred, so let's call it $2500.

Re: how much $$$ did the Summit cost you?



THAT is how much crap I packed/acquired during this 11-day trip.

What size tires will fit on my FJ?

The owner's manual for your FJ is right here. <--- This is a link. Many answers to your questions are contained within.

See the relationship between highway speed and MPG here.
