Most people I know share a room, 3-5 people to a room, and use it as a pit area as well. It keeps the costs down and pretty much makes it more fun for everybody involved.

Well you sorta have to pit in the room otherwise you won't know when your heat is because they have it broadcast on the TV.

Default time between heats

you run 2 heats on Friday and Saturday.....heats run from 8 or 9 in the morning to at least 9 at night if not later. Its about 6 or 7 hours between heats.

It is usually pretty cold that time of year, 20-50 degrees. If you do not mind your van running all day with heat or getting a generator that is actually a good way to pit.
