Self-guided elk hunt in Gunnison National Forest, Colorado. If you want to get crazy expensive, rent an RV. Otherwise, you could do the whole trip for under $2,000 a person, EASY. Drive out and live in a tent, $1,000 a person.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.

He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
