I'm planning a year long road trip across the US with my boyfriend in 2008. We're trying to figure out ways to make money when we run out, and how to live cheaply on the road without sacrificing the experience. We've thought of some ways, but I'm curious what other thing people can think of.
I have a masters degree in English, and will have an initial NY State teacher certification by then. My options so far are travel writer, substitute teacher, waitress, clerical temp stuff, internet poker, and selling stuff we find on Ebay when I can find a wireless signal.
He's a line cook and is very handy. He might have an Associates degree in Electronics by then. His options so far are cook and construction.
We're going to travel in a van with a mattress in the back, so that should save on accomdations. But where can we stay cheaply but safely during the times we need to drop anchor and work? For the stuff I could do, I'd need to look like I took a shower, lol. For the stuff the could do, he'd NEED a shower at the end of the day.
We have friends spattered throughout the country, but I don't want to overstay our welcomes at their homes.
Any ideas would be helpful!
