Your looking at $360 to leave from fort wayne, and $315 from Indy round trip.
Why not just drive, it's only a 36 hour drive one way straight through! LOL

What's the nighmare look like in getting your PC & Monitor there? I'm not sure i'd trust packing both in a suitecase and hoping for the best, and i know they won't let you carry-on, especially yours with the water cooling.
I think this is out of my budget, but i would love to hit the million man LAn in KY or something else that big and only 4-5 hours away.

you know you can get cars cheaper by not booking at the airport, because the airport has their own taxes they charge.
I know i'm not available to go, to take off more than a day with a baby on the way, the wife would leave me!
so i'll quit posting on your thread sine i'm just stiring the pot :=D

Then your planning on shoving 4 people and their computers along with changes of clothes and personal effects into a midsize car? LOL this is kinda funny to watch cometogether. You'd be better off just flying! Still am courious about how you'd get the computers there by flying...

flying seems like the best option to me 36 *24*24 plastic tote. It might be consider excessive luggage. If it weigh less than 80lbs its $50. I took a mountain bike to az in a box and didnt get charge a dime it was my only luggage i had my clothes in teh box as well.

most flights cost you 15 bucks just for one normal suitcase anymore, its going to cost 100+ just to bring your pc along with you. To me driving is still the best option.

But as much as i would love to do this one, I will just be getting home from CES a few days before and will be broke.

Its a bummer too because i have a few friends who will be there.

On a side note, their case mod contest is VERY competitive, i wouldn't call it money in the bank.


Also, remember that driving to chicago will cost you gas on top of paying for airport parking. Even though it cost more leaving out of fort wayne you could save that money. It may come out cheaper.
