Folks, I'm from Wisconsin and I would like to move to Boone, NC I'm only 19 so its only me moving. I have very little to pack. What I'm wondering is how much would you say? I would be renting in Boone.

For a rental truck? For gas/food/etc? You gotta be more specific.

Wow. Why Boone? Will you be attending Applachian State? Boone is a little town tucked away not far off the Blue Ridge Parkway and surrounded by the North Carolina high country. I never lived there, only rented a cabin nearby, but it is a great place if you are in to outdoor pursuits. Will you be coming from a small town in Wisconsin or one of the cities? If you are coming from a place like Milwaukee, Boone will be quite and adjustment.

Steve-o, Yes for a small rental truck and gas. I know it will be only one trip. How much should I expect for registering my vehicle etc.?

goozer, I was raised in Portage/Pacific Wisconsin that area Pacific+Portage is about 12,500 people. We have a small tech college, super wal mart, fast food chains. So I'm used to having to keep myself busy. I love the outdoors, if you get the chance google Devils Lake, Wisconsin, I go hiking there alot. I love taking pictures and making movies and just fishing and hiking. My brother said I'm kinda like that guy from the movie "Grizzly Man" I love to be outside. I plow snow and shovel in the winter as a part time job. And I also pressure wash houses in the summer. So being outside is critical to me. Thats why Boone sticks out to me. The beautiful mountains and the climate. I wont be attending Appalachian State. I'm probably going to get a two year degree up here. I'm thinking Crimminal Justice or Something with videography or outdoors like job.

Here's a picture of our nearby countryside. lol nothing like NC

NC definitely has bigger hills/mountains, but your corner of WI is absolutely gorgeous IMO. Ive never been to Boone, so I cant really comment on that. As for costs, your best bet is to call all the renters and compare prices (ie Budget, U-Haul, etc). Can your stuff fit in a large van? If so, youd probably be better off just renting a van, itll be cheaper Im sure.
