I have always had to limit my events to one per month. I'm on a tight budget and
am planning to go to Pennsic.  Because of the increase in Natural Gas heating
through the winter, and now gasoline prices, I may have to stop
eventing altoghether, in order to save for Pennsic.  I've already restricted my
travel to Camps Cimarron or Will Rogers. And cut back on other expenses.
