I'm not able to travel far at all, sorry. Fair cost, I have no idea. But it sounds like you have something fun up your sleeve! :)

Alicia said...

Well, it would really depend on how many of my "blog pals" would be there!! It would have to be worth it for me to take time away from my family. ;)

April said...

I'd probably travel a couple of hours away. Wouldn't it be such a fun thing for us all to get together one day???

Debra said...

I would travel as far as Texas or TN ... and I'm not sure as far as costs go. But I would be willing to save up to go!

Hugs to you, sweet friend!

devita said...

it should be not out of this continent because I am sure i can't afford it. sigh...

Gretchen said...

I would travel for a day. In this economy, there is no fair cost. I'm afraid I'd try to use frequent flier miles and/or drive.

Well...since I traveled to North Carolina for the She Speaks...last year---I could travel that far...it was a great day trip---quite an adventure for two sisters to embark on! THE trip was half the fun! THE memories of that drive ---our stops along the way---getting turned around...what fun we had! Wished you'd been there!

HOPE we get to meet soon!!!!

not sure if I would travel. If I do travel it is with my hubby and family. I am a big time home-body, and like a baby... I am attached at my hubby's hip!

I have sleep anxiety when I am gone for one night with the girls for an over nighter for something fun like a WOMEN of FAITH Confrenece, LOL!

(sometimes I am just not right, I guess, lol, my wierd quirk, I guess :O)

Heather said...

hmm, i think i would travel no farther than 3 1/2 hrs on a plane. so i would go anywhere within 3 1/2 hours of where i live if flying. if driving, no more than 2 hours. i don't like long road trips, lol.

Laurie Ann said...

Great question. I'm always up for a road trip. The farthest I'd travel would be 12 to 15 hours. No flying for me. As for cost, hmmm...I'd have to keep it under $500. Splitting lodging would help and if some meals were included in the conference that would help. Great QOTD!

Sandi said...

I don't think I would travel very far. I don't like to be away from hubby much and he would not like a blogger retreat.

Bernadine said...

I really don't know. I'd have to be certain I'd know enough people there so I don't feel like I'm alone in a room full of strangers.

Apryll said...

Hey Denise, I would probably be willing to drive up to 400 miles or so (a good days drive). Cost for would probably have to be less that $200.

Allison said...

Why? Are we all going to come over your house? :)

I think I would be willing to travel 200 miles by car but not any further. I don't know if I could afford to travel by air. I want to visit my son this summer or early fall. It has been almost two years.
As far as expenses, if it could be around $200, I guess it would be doable. Are you planning a retreat?
