Adjustments to above...

- For cars with 2 or more people, add $100 per person beyond the navigator (i.e. add $100 for driver). Crew members can go pick up some tacos while "school" activities are in play.
- Hotel pricing is TBD, (maybe around $80-$100 per night including a great breakfast)

If you have questions, contact Darren at the email listed above.
