    Default Interesting stats

    It is amazing how close in total dollars the cost of lodging at motels and campgrounds. thanks for the great summary report and for sharing all of the photos.

    Default Ratio - Motel:campgrounds

    Dollars spent on motels vs campgrounds even more interesting when you look at the number of nights in each.mAnd we stay at cheap motels,,primarily Motel 6, Red Roof on occasion and Super 8 if either of those not available.

    15:51 nights

    And for the most part (weather permitting) we much prefer a campground. We sleep better in our van than in a motel. We also do a much better job of fixing or cooking meals when we camp, cheaper and healthier.
