Traveling for paintball

How often do you travel either out of state or 2+hrs one way, for paintball during your "paintball season"?

Note: I enabled multiple choice so you can choose a monthly and annual number.

Use to drive 2 hours away at least 2 or 3 times a month. But now I am starting back into paintball once more and will be doing many big games.

I live in Canada...The corner store is 2 hours away...

Seriously though, I feel lucky that my local field is about a 30 min drive. But I have driven 1, 2, 3 hours each way to play at other fields.

Last year I hit Pumpers, which was a 5-6 hour drive? And I will be heading to EMR a few times again this year!

I know the feeling.

I'm lucky enough to be so far out in the middle of nowhere that we can play in the woods every weekend about 20 minutes away from my house.

Right now it is 4+ hours to bus from school to the field. But usually I play 3 to4 games a year that require major travel.

We have a couple of small fields within an hour or less from where I live, but tend to get bored with rec play. Most times between March and late October, we try to hit at least one "big game" or scenario. Most of these events are at least 2.5 - 3 hours away. Have gone to Living Legends for the past couple of years and it's maybe 4 to 4.5 hours away. That's the farthest we have traveled so far. Would love to hit up EMR, Skirmish, or OK D-day, but the drive is just brutal from where I am and my brother hates driving that far.

No more traveling for me. I will say I'm so happy I got all that in before 9/11.

I have to drive an hour to get to a crappy field. 2 hours is the norm for me to get to any big games.
Never gone much more than that, though. I've never flown to an event, either.
