  Transportation Costs      
 

This is the single biggest expense and what we most need the grant for. Ultimately we could probably find reclaimed materials for almost all of the other portions of the project but we would still need to get it there. We have van that can tow a trailer containing all of the materials but we need the trailer rental and fuel covered. Naturally we expect to cover food and lodging ourselves! We are attempting to find a van that can operate on Biodiesel but this is subject to availability.

     
 

Trailer rental

21 $25/day $525
 

Fuel costs (based on 12 mpg consumption rate for towing) at current gas prices of $2 per gallon at

2,432 mi each way (Asheville NC to Reno NV) = 4,864 miles
234 miles round trip Reno to BRC at 2 trips (one for initial setup and another for water) = 468 miles
Total miles: 5332

Number of gallons of fuel: 5332 / 13mpg = 410

410 gallons $2.25 $922.95
         
  TOTAL     $6747.48
