          I would recommend no less than $350 if you are roadtripping it and paying for one of the four nights.

          $75 for Badge
          $130 for Room
          $20 for a tank of Gas(Split tanks among other passengers)
          $40 for Two T-shirts(at least)
          $85 for Food and Miscellaneous($7.77 Steak and Shrimp at Mr. Lucky's)

          You'll have a good time and be satisfied. Of course, more money = more fun.

            food...

            I remember someone at dc, one of the goons, telling me about this place right down from the ap, mini casino, old school, but had a resturant in it. 2.99 for like a full egg/bacon/sausage/hash browns meal. It was a sure way to save money for food! And it was a damn good meal!!!!

                That would be Terrible's. Stumble there often, and you'll have quite a bit left over for the good buffets!

                  I ended up spending quite a bit although last year I didn't spend as much on booze for the room because it ended up only being 3 of us and 1 of us didn't drink hard booze.

                  I think my main expenditures were the random trips to subway and AP snack food and drinks when I was drunk. Oh yeah and replacing my VX-5 I left in a cab after a 2 quart screwdriver at the AP and several adios motherfuckers at that bar around the corner with a few of my efnet #phreak brethen.

                    there must be some type of hamfest after defcon because there have been at least 6 people I know lose or have their radios stolen during con time... I am too paranoid to lose anything.

                      This is usually due to being as drunk as everyone is so proud of getting. You get shitfaced and lose sight of your shit while you stumble around.

                      YOINK!!

                        Well for awhile it was all a blur but it finally came to me what happened. I had my radio clipped to my pocket and I needed to pay the cab driver so I took it off to get my wallet out, paid the driver, and got out without picking it back up.

                        Generally I'm pretty good with my technology when I'm drunk if I have a moment to think, but getting out of the cab and paying the driver is a hurried event and it happened faster than I could process with that much alcohol in me.

                        Oh well. Lesson learned.

                          Last I'd heard you were gonna call the cab company to see about getting it back. I take it that was a pointless move?

                                There is on-site registration starting on Thursday. There is no pre-registration, show up, drop your coin, get your badge, begin to drink.

                                There is no age restriction to DefCon itself, to get a room on your own you need to be 18 at the AP and 21 at any hotel with a casino.

                                Hope that helps
