Hello road trip gurus,
Me and a buddy are planning a cross-country road trip going the cheapest possible. Instead of hitting cities and weird sites like the biggest ball of twine, we want to hit most of the major national parks and go through the most beautiful scenery. -grand canyon, yellowstone, deserts, etc.
We plan to eat the cheapest food possible (need suggestions), perhaps rice and potatoes and stuff.
We plan to camp or, if we have to, sleep in the car every night. No lodging expenses. I know we can sleep at truck stops and camp in camp grounds, but are there other camping options?
We've got a vehicle with decent gas mileage and enough room, so no extra expense there. We don't think there will be any special luxury expenses. Again, cheap bastids.
How much money do you think we'll need to pull this off? Again, we'll sacrifice what most perceive as comfort for going cheap.
Also, any general suggestions for cheap adventurers on a road trip more than welcome.
