What do you budget to attend a boogie?

$75 Speeding Ticket don't actually cost $75.
You can't forget the court costs!



And increases to insurance. [:/]

I budget(ish) for skydiving/boogies.

Pretty much whatever I have left over after necessary bills and retirement planning is fair game.:)
Sometimes I've made major cuts just to be able to skydive/boogie more.

Of course then something badass comes along like the Belize Boogie and you're forced into defecit spending. :)
Stupidity if left untreated is self-correcting
If ya can't be good, look good, if that fails, make 'em laugh.

I totaled a car already, so my insurance is as high as it can go.
The police officer was being "nice" and took 10 miles off the ticket so I don't have to come to court in Virginia after I told her I was coming back from a skydiving boogie ...and she was like "What is a boogie?"
I had to show her the rig, logbook, USPA card and wingsuit before she believed that I just spent five days sleeping in a tent and driving 440 miles each way and paid $800 just to skydive.

This years Holiday Boogie in Eloy is so far costing me $10,000, WITHOUT accounting for jumps yet



Plus tunnel time?

Make sure you get a discount on the hookers... or they will add up fast!

(oddly enough, they can even do math!)

looks like your STD testing is getting more expensive...... :P

I'm with all of those who say don't think really about. I usually plan on spending anywhere from $200-$500 on a boogie. I sleep in a tent, usually carpool, and I dont jump much at boogies, mainly just party. Plus, I usually don't have to buy my own drinks (yay being a girl;)) So boogies are pretty cheap for me. B|


Damn right! STD test for $64? It used to be $10 and if you were a student it was free so people would get tested and not spread the love.
I swear, next time, I am doing the "hot sauce double bagger"

$36.90 Beer



You severely underbudgeted for :D

Try something like $369.00 Beer


$369.00 is another 15mins Tunnel or 12 jumps and dinner, screw that:ph34r:

thread resurrection time it seems

I looked at twardos initial response about eating ramon.....I guess he meant ramen but eating ramon may earn some more jump money if he is generous :P

budget? = available cash + available credit limit

cost control? interesting concept which should be considered later

I see a disturbing trend in your expense report. You're spending way too much money on alcohol. By now, you really should be experienced enough to know how to get it free.



somebody has to buy it for the rest of us ;)


Yeah. What she said! ;)
