    Either me and a friend or going to rent a car and see if anybody would like to come along, or we could ride with whoever is going down. Either way I really would like to go to Tempe this December!

    You would need the van for 4-5 days and it's 3000 miles (1500 each way), but on a whole yeah rental isn't that bad of a way to go if you are splitting the cost

    By the way it takes 24 hours to drive there. I have done it 8 times in my life. I used to live there. That is without sleeping and stopping about every 2 hours for refreshers.

    tell her simply...the cost of what it would be without other people going and if you just booked a flight, hotel and rental
    ....look at the savings...use that and go shopping
