I figure my Rally travels this year to be quite more expensive and have had to manage my budget accordingly to find more GAS funds. Anybody else have genious GAS budget ideas to make more money for rally play time? Setting aside twice the money for such is getting rediculous, but needed nowadays. The prices out west(CA) are getting nearer and nearer to 5 bucks a gallon. I went all the way to Vermont and back home to California on 400$ in 2006, for gas. Today it will run that, just for Wyoming. We know it already, of course, but "where are you" finding the extra funds in your lifestyle? I'm not paid more at work, are you? I'll keep my rally life alive somehow and keep on bik'in, but its a shame we're eating it from somebody way up there. Suggestions for gas budgeting is a good topic and our rally needs attendees, as always in large numbers and we'll have fun despite the horrible gas issue at hand. I can't help but wonder, however if the rally will suffer at all with this crisis of 5 dollar gas. Hope not. I'm saving all I can and ride my bikes nearly everywhere nowadays, because my diesel p/u truck is a 130$ fillup. My last fillup on my GSA1200 was 34$. PO'd, you bet! Randy 13233"Polarbear".
