    Actually yeah,I gave it some thought,I fiqured that if we took my van with 4 guy total it would cost about 150 bucks per man,thats with tent camping and no boat,also anything personal would be extra,and using 2.70 a gallon gas rate,1500 hundred mile round trip give or take a little depending on side tracking and running around at the lake. About 730 miles each way of highway miles. A long drive! Not as bad as to PA for a boat,lol, but still a good hop skip and jump. The hundred and fifty each would cover gas,food on the road,and a camping spot at the lake and maybe the fishing lisences for the weekend. Not sure if I want to do it yet though.

    Oh yeah round trip airfair from lincoln to paducah ky is 248 bucks per person with a stopover another town for a flight change and a total of 7 1/2 to 9 hrs in the air depending on which flight you take.

    I thought about it. I could drive to my dad's in missouri spend the night. Get up the next day and drive to my Aunt's near W Memphis Ark and spend the night again. That would put me within about 5 hours of the gathering but I would have already passed up Lake of the Ozarks/ Truman Res Bull Shoals Lake in Arkansas Horseshoe Lake right across the road from my aunt's house by then I'd be tired and pissed that I drove that far and haven't even fished yet so I'd probably fall asleep at the wheel and roll my car in the ditch. Forget it.
