Going to DrupalCamp Colorado

Just got my tickets for Drupalcamp Colorado, and reserved a spot at the Melbourne hostel (my first hostel ever). I got so excited I put together a google map, complete with hostel, camp location, burrito place with good reviews and a couple grocery stores.

For those of you who might be considering going, but aren't sure about absorbing the costs, here's what it's going to run me:

$280 for plane ticket
$20 for registration
$22 for 1 night in hostel
$20 for shuttle to airport (will be catching a ride with fellow Drupaler from airport to event on Saturday)
$15 burrito budget (lunches served at the event, will bring breakfast with me)
---------------------
$357 TOTAL

That's almost a third the cost of just attending a 2-day Lullabot workshop (not including airfare). For me, if I do something like this about 4 times a year, that's about $90 / month, the amount I'm saving by using a Virgin mobile phone and iPod touch instead of an iPhone. So, basically free! ;)

Look forward to seeing you there!

Nice map - there's also this somewhat more complete map: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=1075052937485838...

I hope you'll consider the Vitamin Cottage grocery store at 15th and Platte streets which is similar to Whole Foods and ultimately much closer to the path you'll be taking between the hostel and the camp venue.

I look forward to seeing you in a month!

Thanks for the tip Greg, I've added Vitamin Cottage to my map. I look forward to seeing you too!

Hey Chris,

Nice to see your Google map, was it difficult to customize?

Let us know what the hostel is like, would love to read a short review of it!

Cheers,

Your accounting practices seem to be similar to mine.

I had to add a beer budget to that, but then I'd be drinking beer at home anyway so I guess that's free too - sweet.

See ya at the camp!

Yeah, I always prefer dirt cheap, and it's oddly often more fun that way. Look forward to meeting you there!
