Read Thread: Event - How Far is Too Far?

by NLWProfileContactLogbookNote

So interested in your feedback. I have an event in a box that has about 85 stamps and I want to see how far folks are willing to travel for a 1 day event. I have been looking at a location around Hearne or Caldwell to allow about the same/similar dist...

Six hours is about my limit for an event. Since we are in North Carolina, Texas is probably too far. However, I would drive a few hours for an event with eighty-five stamps. Will that event box be traveling to other states?

I have 2 small ones, so 2 hours is really all I can do. If it were just me, I'd travel up to 8 hours.

I'd drive up to two hours to go to a one-day event. Mostly I want to have enough time at the event and not feel rushed, while also avoiding nighttime driving, which I hate. I do also factor in what roads I will have to take to get to the event. Fo...

I've traveled from NY to Nevada for an event before. Same here except we drove from PA to Las Vegas then back east to Tarpon Springs, FL, for another event before driving back to PA. If the event is interesting enough, I don't hesitate to travel for it.

Not sure how many hours you will be willing to drive, but I have an event coming up with 70 stamps plus event boxes! I will be heading to NC next week myself for a fishing trip! It's a 6.5 hour drive for us...

I would say 1.5 to 2 hour drive sounds doable for a day event. I enjoy the option of overnight & boxing the next day to finish finding boxes that couldn't be found the first day :)
