    heheh... I was gonna question the estimate myself, but I figured maybe I was just out of touch with the nocash brilliance from teenage years; or that maybe it was meant as $300 still needed, on top of some other unknown amount.

    I know for me, from a similar distance, it will cost close to 1k once I pay flight, hotel nights 5 (not sharing/splitting).. not to mention food/gambling/vendor.goodies
    if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

            heheh not loaded... just single

            flight ~ $370
            room ~ $550
            adm. ~ $ 75
            -------
            $995

            Adds up real quick. Not sure how else I could have done it cheaper with only five vdays I could take from work. I did have a group of 7 or 8 of us that was heading down from Maine, which would have killed room cost considerably. By the time May rolled around twas just I set to go....

              I'm budgeting about $1300 for the trip. A good chunk of it will be covered as a "work expense" by my employer. I am going to recoup some more of that through room sharing with a friend. Some of that also includes feeding my fiance.

                You got a fiance? You know what that means, right? She gets into Strippercon for free.

                      Can I get into Strippercon free too?! I'm more than willing to take my clothes off... certainly someone will pay me to put them back on, LOL!!!

                        I'd sooner buy the Brooklyn Bridge before I buy another red ticket, but maybe we need an amateur strippercon to at least put some fun into it. Assuming it is legal of course. I take it the vendor area is clothing optional since it is secured? :D

                          FWIW, the least I've EVER spent on con was around $500, and that was staying in a cheap offsite motel, and only staying for the weekend.

                          This year is closer to $2k:

                          Flight: $330
                          Room: $978 (Alexis loft w/hot tub for 6 nights)
                          Car $184 & gas: $20
                          Entertainment: $50
                          Food: $50
                          Alcohol: $75 (rough estimate, based on what I need and current prices at the class 6)
                          Badge: $75

                          All except flight, room, and car are conservative estimates. I have quite a few comps for entertainment and food, plus I plan to stock up on some cheap foods while I'm on base. Other entertainment, souvenirs, etc, will be added if time/funds are available.

                          These figures don't include things that I bought before various cons, like a wireless card, a radio, suitable clothes and luggage, etc.

                          Unless someone is driving you, letting you crash in their room, and letting you mooch their food & alcohol, con isn't cheap. This is my annual vacation, and I save up for it as such.

                              All I can say is that you rock man... To scrounge that much to make it to the con, and be ballsy enough to travel that far, let alone on a bigass bus trip... I'm seriously in awe
                              if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

                                Yeah c0nv3r9 is seriously right. Those are some serious brass ones for bussing all the way here.

                                If you make it I will treat you to one (1) buffet somewhere, so you can gorge yourself :) Send me a PM with a passphrase so I will know it is you, and don't forget it. :)
