Well, I am hoping to attend CPAC 2011 during the final stage of the weekend event, in which I would be covering the closing speech, straw poll results and visiting parts of Washington. Well, according to the registration fees, hotel fees and estimated travel costs, the hope of attending CPAC could be a lost hope, at least for a few more conferences.
- Saturday Pass to CPAC - $50.00 dollars.
- Hotel cost for two nights - $478.00 dollars.
- Gasoline costs for travel - $50.00 dollars (pending good car).
- Parking costs - $62.72 (two days).
- Food & Drink - $100.00 dollars.
- Wasteful spending - $150.00 dollars.
The above mentioned estimates are based on hotel costs in 2010, gasoline costs in 2010 and not knowing how expensive food would be in Washington, leaving me with just one financial hope for attending CPAC in 2011 - receiving Conservative blogger credentials that would erase $50.00 dollars in expenses, leaving us with $690.72 dollars that will have to be raised.
I have a feeling I will not be attending CPAC in twelve months, unless I somehow get a job, transportation and several hundred dollars in generous donations from Conservatives across America......We shall see folks, for now....I am waiting for the straw poll results and for Glenn Becks upcoming speech.
