    Fast Food restaurants eaten at - McDonalds twice because there was nothing else or nothing open when we were hungry. We tried to avoid them like the plague. We mostly ate at local cafés/diners in small towns for breakfast and dinner. We met some pretty interesting people. What is it with ketchup or Tabasco in the West? I like hot sauce, don’t get me wrong, but on your eggs??? We just snacked on granola bars and stuff for lunch.

    I admire all of you who track such details while traveling. I just know I spent $xxxx cash on-hand. I could get details from the debit card statement on other stuff so I guess that part is do-able. I'm too lazy to track the cash though. But these reports are interesting so maybe I should try it sometime.

    Off to check out the roadtrip report...
