David,David said:Note that the Honda Hoot is "HIGH" season in the Knoxville area, as it is the number one tourist attraction for the city, bringing in over 20,000 Hoot'rs each of the last two years. So, the hotels are full price. Last three trips I've made to Knoxville (2 Hoots and one Fall Color trip) averaged $1k for a week of hotels, meals, and fuel. No consideration in that number is given for the thosands of $$'s you'll spend on all the stuff from the couple hundred vendors that are there.
And that does NOT count the extra expense of at least one trip to the "Last Chance" :!: 8) :wink:
