So, I had something of a revelation today. I was going over Jim’s equipment list that he couldn’t find prices for, and I suddenly realized…
It really doesn’t matter. :)
The whole issue of pricing and how much money you have is largely moot, as this is not a long-running campaign but a very, very long one-shot.
So unless you want to own and be flying your own airplane (and, by the way, No), what you want to own is fine by me. As long as it’s reasonable. Eventually, Starkweather and Moore are going to be looking at what everyone wants to bring with them and saying yes or no anyway, so no worries. Your character can own whatever you want them to own, within reason for the character you’re playing. Just be prepared to be persuasive if it ever comes to talking Starkweather and Moore into allowing you to bring multiple bottles of benzine with you, or whatever. ;) And remember that only so much is going to be physically possible to carry if you take a 6 man plane, or a dog-sled, or have to go somewhere by foot. :)
