Here's the situation: I happen to be going on a 2 week cross country road trip from Boston to Socal with some buddies of mine. The thing is, I'm poor. The catch is though, the friends who are traveling with me are also poor, so I can't bribe them for money. For some reason, these guys i'm traveling with are also high maintenance, meaning they don't wanna sleep in my car at night or eat rice with ketchup for the whole duration of the 2 week trip. But we can't afford to stay at a best western everynight or eat out 3 times a day. I need some information about cheap lodging and cheap ways to eat. Thanks!
