How much did going to Saturdays game cost you in $ & time?

For me at my ripe old age, in a small rv boondocking free, most meals in..but needing tix, gas to & from, concessions, window decals (scratch that), etc.,

last 2 home games cost me approx $300-$350 each game..and 600 miles round trip at 5-6 hrs of driving at 0- 80mph (so 1200 miles & approx 24 hrs total).

which is a drop in the bucket when I was younger with 4 season tix, family of 4 to feed, gas, etc.

How bout you?

Me, personally...

Ticket + my portion of tailgate food + gas = approximately $180
Time = 12 hours. (Round trip from Greer)

12 hours from Greer! You made a wrong turn some place. I send less than 8 hours round trip and I live just a short drive from virginia


I was giving total time expended.

Actual drive-time was about 2.5 hours thanks to an accident on 123 going home last night. The remaining time was spent at tailgate and roasting myself in the 95 degree heat.

maybe $500 for a game in NC that I can go to without a Hotel. $1500 for ACC Championship. $2500 for a bowl game. I only go to 2-3 games a year so I always buy good seats which ups the cost.

7 games and I split the cost with a buddy... We are spending about $450 each. That doesn't include other costs for items already bought and paid for like a generator, satellite, TV, chairs, table, etc. That's just the tickets, parking, food, beverages and gas.

Bowl games are usually in the $3,000 and up range.

Cost me gas from my house to Gaffney to meet my Son and then back to the house. All the food I could eat and top shelf I could drink. Did I mention it had A/C and some nice surroundings. What a day!! Time: 13 hrs from my door and back, total
