What Do I Charge? Traveling Recording Gig

Hello internet!
I’ve been asked to do a traveling recording gig (2.5 days, 2 hours from home). It’s a full band tracking situation in their very good sounding recording space. 4 piece band doing 5 songs live then overdubs. I’m bringing my home rig with me (motu 16a, audient /seventh circle mic pres, beyerdynamic mics, advanced audio mics, etc) which I think is well equipped. Last time I worked with this band we worked 9/10 hours/day for 2 days with a handful of ear breaks. I’ll be crashing on their couch.
For context I’m in the Midwest (Kansas City).
Thanks for reading that novel and I appreciate the guidance!

Since you'll be staying there and not sleeping in the comfort of your home, i would charge a premium of at least $120 per hour, plus food cost
