I am hearing more and more comments from friends about pooling resources for railfanning trips with others to share the costs and even staying home and skipping railfan events this year due to the high cost of travel. How is the price of travel influencing your travel and railfanning plans for 2006? What you decide has a big impact on the organizations we discuss in this forum. Can you justify the expense of attending large events a long way from home or are you planning on staying in your own area?
