200+ miles each way from Loveland,CO to Salida,Co with shuttle miles added in there. 400+ miles of round trip driving for that second vehicle.
Most outdoorsy folks actually worth a shit have a 4wd truck so a generous 20mpg is about 20 gallons of gas used.
At. $2.65 a gal. x 20 gal.= $53 in gas alone for that second vehicle.
Factor in wear and tear on the vehicle, second driver's time, a couple hours time wasted running a shuttle for the group...which is really cheaper?
Now from the business side...so you're bitching about $60? Two employees, two hours of labor, a company's vehicle and gas to run the shuttle. Maybe making 30 bucks on it.
Man, they are really sticking it to you there.
