    We can figure the budget based on determining a vehicle to travel in and the estimated MPG. Pick the vehicle give me a MPG and I will work out a budget. I would also need the number of days we want to travel (hotel / meals).

    Now the caches on the way - I will leave that techno piece to another one of the gang.

    We could CITO lots of bottles for a gas fund LOL!

    Post Just did this

    Troy and I just drove to Florida and back. Raleigh was about 985 miles and with gas mileage of the Team Tahoe ( 17 MPG ) it would be about 300.00 round trip. Gas is quite a bit cheaper down south. ( 2.59 ) alot of places. The time at approx. 75 miles per hour, figuring in some caching along the way, and we took the western route, thru Hartford and Pennsylvania, was about 20 hours. Lots of caches along the way. Most of them micros at rest areas. The Team will probally be going, but would make it a week long vacation. Most of this route is allready available thru GC.com. " along a route " is a shared method of making PQ's. Also there are alot of Bookmarks along those routes.

    Well, we know the Expy is not going at roughly 13 mpg so let's take an average of 25 miles per gallon and calculate with that. I've got an in as far as hotels go, and meals we can pack picnics and a cooler to help with that.

    Pretty sad isn't it when we consider $2.59 to be a good deal . . . although $2.59 does sound pretty decent . . . I've got to figure out some excuse to drive over to Newport again and fuel up.
