Camping trip to the white mountains is planned for Sep 23-25 2006. We will be staying in Intervale cabin.
Exciting Adventures are to be had:
- Having a picknic dinner on Cathederal Ledge, Watching as the sun sets behind us and the valley falls into the shadow (of death).
- Hiking somewhere in the whites. Possibly Welch Dickie trail, or something more rigorous.
- Swimming in freakin freezing mountain streams
- Stargazing, marshmallow roasting action
- Beating up whoever snores
The following is a description of how I [Darth Bader] arrived at an estimated cost of the trip.
2 rental minivans for ~$420 (this price goes down if we return them before 6 on Monday.) I'm estimating gas cost at $100 but it may be more.
GRT budget pays for 200 of this cost. remaining cost split between 14 people for ~22.85
Intervale cabin costs $100 per night (but we don't have to pay for campgrounds and Mitoc equipment.)
Of this $200, GRT pays for $50. The remaining $150 gets split between 16 people (iJenn and Rodrigo are driving separately.) Estimated 9.40 per person.
Total estimated cost $32.25 per person
Has not been budgeted for yet, but will be as cheap as possible
