Does anyone here drive for the Amish like to other towns?

I have Amish friends that I have bought produce from for over a year now and they are moving to another state. They asked if I would drive their family in my passenger van towing a 5X10 trailer for the 6 hour drive.

I want to know what the going rate is for that being that I need to consider my gas, time and gas to come home.

I don't want to make aprofit on my friends, but I do need to cover those costs for my own sake.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I wish, I bet they're seriously fun and interesting to talk to.

A six hour drive is a 12 hour deal for you. I'd maybe charge $200 plus gas.
