I had a long think about going, but decided it was probably a tad too expensive for me at present. I'm sure the ticket costs are probably about right for the cost of staging the event. But I wondered if there were possibly cheaper venues or formats for such an event that could have meant cheaper entry. After all, people who are enthusiastic about low-budget adventurous travel are often cheapskates.
Certainly once you factor in some petrol moullah if you're coming from afar, and obligatory food+
money (mostly the
money), it's not a cheap weekend.
This post is not meant as an unconstructive criticism of the event or organisers. (incase somebody takes offense)
