Where are you coming from and how are you getting to SEFF


I am always intrigued by how far some people come for SEFF and the various modes of transportation. Everything from motorcycles to International Airlines bring people to SEFF.

So how far do you come, and how do you get there.

It is just over 700 miles for us each way and we tow a 5th wheel camper. Upgraded to a new, bigger toy hauler this year also.

My trip will be 1,272 miles to SEFF. Glad I have a layover in Virginia before the second half of the ride.

I'm only about 600 miles or so from the house. Considered renting a camper but the cost of rental and additional fuel adds up quick. We towed the same trailer to go camping and got 11 mpg up the mountain road.

It's a tent for Nick and I again this year. No big, I can listen to all the craziness at night against.

It is about 415 miles from my driveway to Hodges. I will be pulling the same 35' toyhauler as the last couple years.

I've got a roughly 470 mile drive...this year I have fitted my Tahoe, pulling a 28ft ultralight camper, with a big electromagnet on a boom, will wait till FMB passes me on I-95, and energize my "tractor beam" and shift into neutral. If I disengage when he makes gas/bathroom breaks, maybe he will think I'm just following him, and will think his mileage suckage is due to his camper upgrade

You just might be able to pull that off. He will be so happy with the new TH. He might not even see you.
