I've already drove 8+ hours stayed at a hotel to do one performance the next day, then crash at the hotel that night and drive home the next day. 16+ hours of driving for a few hours of work.

well maybe i'll get really rich & be able to buy a truck & borrow my dads trailer by this time next year
well okay lemme explain this better, its not the hours that really bother me, its putting that many miles on the monte lol i got hella lucky finding this monte with such low mileage on it so i'm kinda OCD bout putting lots of miles on it lol if i had the resources i'd buy an old cheap S10 & park the monte except to have fun on the weekends

Yep, a whole year. Hosting a major meet is a lot more work then it seems. I had a total blast and loved it. But I'm only doing one of those a year. Mini meets, those I have all the time.

Try some mini meets first and work up. I've been doing this a few years now. This was the biggest one I've done. Even the Milwaukee area said they don't get that big.
