Cost of attending FIR

We are planning on attending this year's FROG International Rally and would like info on "what type of budget should we plan on" for this event.
Thank you for your inputs.
Happy Trails

Having been there three times and driving from Mass, I can tell you it's about 1000 miles for us. The rally was $625 for two last year (I think). Then, depending on how many paid excursions snow you go on, that is another $150-$250. Then of course, a 30 pack of Bud Light delivered to my site for providing the first response. All in all, less than $1,000 bucks or about 50 cents a mile. Well worth it. You will enjoy the trip

^^^ First responder. You should be asking a higher price.

Then donít forget the Rise N Roll crack house that puts the weight on and that weight has to be worked off. The rally is a lot of fun, a place to see old friends and make new friends,

Last year's prices were:

$525 for two adults in an RV
$375 for one adult in an RV
$150 for additional person age 12 or over
No charge for additional person under 12

We're still working on pricing, tours, and other details for this year. We expect that registration will again open in early April and will be announced well in advance.

Mainely...also would note to start paying attention here daily beginning in April and get your reservation in as soon as you see instructions. The spots sell out in just a few days. WELL worth it...especially if you have some things that need attention to fix on the RV.
