Vacation or Mods??

So I was just about to spend a few grand on the truck for things like a Demello bumper and maybe a mid travel setup with other things like WO seat covers and more... but now the GF wants to go to New York for a week

Good part about the trip is that my mom lives out on the East coast in Massachusetts, so the plan was to spend Wednesday through Sunday in the big city, then Sunday through wednesday with my mom, whom I havent seen in 5 years

Roundtrip flight for 2: $580
Hotel for 4 nights in NYC: $1320
Dining/Entertainment for 2: ~$600
TOTAL TRIP COST: ~$2500

Gives me a great vacation and family time, and the money isnt an issue, but that means no more MODS for a few month

What to do??

Why not just fly mom out to see you? You'll still have plenty of money left for mods. New York's not going anywhere, so tell the gf the trip can wait.

Some will scrutinize your logic but I agree 100% Nothing in life is certain, and we just never know. Its only been 5 years because I could never afford it before, but now that I can, its time for a visit anyways, mine as well make a whole trip out of it too right??

It would be nice to bring the truck, and a cross country road trip would be a sweet experience (with someone else not alone) but I don't have $1750 in gas money lol

7000 mi round trip
Avg 17 MPG
412 gallons of fuel used
@ avg $4.25/gal
Total - $1750

Avg. Round-trip airfare per person - $300
or a total of $600 for both of us...

Unless I have a third occupant it would behoove me to fly


EDIT: Although nothing would satisfy me more than to have front and year plate bumpers and some armor and drive around NYC all day people would hate me!
