I would argue that it's still not worth the trip (unless you place a monetary value on the experience).Well, I can drive 2.75 hours one way and it is worth it but, not very often.
The closest MC to me is 110 miles/2 hours (220 miles or about 4 hours round trip) and the IRS vehicle reimbursement rate is $0.575 in 2020. Meaning it "costs" me $126.50 to drive to MC and back. Plus tolls from my location to the closest MC ($10.20 each way = $20.40). Meaning the true cost to me is $146.90. Even if you just use a gas calculation instead of the IRS mileage rate, my 4Runner costs me $0.155 per mile on average to operate, so $34.10 + $20.40 in tolls = $54.50.
So at a bare minimum, I have to know that I'm going to save at least $54.50, before I even get in the car to make it worth my while. And that's not accounting for wear and tear on the vehicle or the cost of my time driving 220 miles. And as a result, I just buy CPUs and motherboards from Amazon or NE (or used ones from the forums).
