For those that kept track of the cost, or set a budget, how much did the whole trip cost? I want to go next year if I can afford it and want to start getting my "summit fund" going.

^^ I did a cost analysis from Portland and that's about what I came up with, close to 5 large. I chose to buy mods instead. :bigthumb:
Yeah, I'm not going back unless I move closer, and have an RV or tow behind camper :lol:

I refuse to figure actual costs!

I stayed at the KOA to cut costs...

The fellowship, views, trails, seeing other modded FJ's and the town was well worth any monetary expense!

We'll definitely be back next year!!! For our seventh Summit!

cheers,

dale

Two nights at hotels on travel to and from summit $120. Slept in my FJ on an air mattress at KOA($17)
Brought rations in a cooler and ate sandy's and breakfast bars and summit provided meals

I also bought some skids from RCI at their vendor booth...but that cost is not included in this assessment

I saw that our motel that charged $155/night during the Summit is now running a $55/night rate for the rest of the summer.

But I got to meet Baz and The Moose, and had Demello's carne asada, so that was worth the extra 400 bones.

$16 in beef jerky ( from Main St. Not that good)
1 expo1 front bumper on the group buy (today)
$350 in raffle tickets (won $1000 High Altitude Radio package)

Not to mention the cost of the trip.

But what the hell you only have such a short time on this planet why not enjoy it!

There's no arguing that it can be an expensive trip but most don't have wheeling anything like this close to home. There are always a lot of repeat attendees so I think that speaks volumes. Gas is always my biggest expense and runs around $800+. I can't buy raffle tickets any more.

I have nothing like this here in Illinois. It's a big beautiful country out there. Any excuse to go experience it is worth the expense. I plan on going next year.
