Now that we are a family of 4 and little man is eating a meal on his own- even McD's is a $25+ affair.

We're headed to Lake Murray State Park in Oklahoma. We've never been to this park but hear it is nice. Looking forward to it!

Polar Express:
$146

Christmas Town:
$75

Total:
$987

Over 2/3 of my predicted total comes simply in fuel to make 1,500 miles (1,250 for the round-trip and 250 "misc" extra miles) figuring 10 mpg and $4/gallon for diesel.

Now we might cut out a huge chunk of the trip.
You only live once & kids are only little ones for a short period...as Nike would say..."Just Do It"

It's called a gasser truck towing a pop up/hybrid camper to get those #'s!

LOL, well crap- good point. Here help me with my foot.

I'm pretty sure Nike stole that from the credit card companies.

Darling daughter offered to give up Christmas presents from us so that we could go.

Know what ya mean......... if you do come down to NC fuel up in Virginia we are about 30 cents a gallon less than NC. In Martinsville Diesel is 3.53-3.59 a gallon.
