Add in things like the Renn faire, food, entertainment, purchases, etc and I'm looking at something closer to $1500. Cripes.
Cripes. I'm always a moron when making these sort of travel decisions too. I never seem to think it through and tend to buy on the spur of the moment. I just realized that my car rental whozit begins _3_ hours after I arrive in the airport. Well that's going to suck. I'll have to remember to bring a book with me for sure.
