Cross Country Trip was for moving to my new job in Atlanta:
Yes, used my own car. Started in Santa Barbaba, ended up in Atlanta. Approx 2,800 mile journey.
Gas costs were about $360 (10 tanks X $36 a tank)
Hotel costs were about $300
Food costs (6 days) were about $100
Entertainment (6 days) were about $200
Santa Barbara - Arizona was the first leg. Have a good friend that is a pilot based out of Tempe so stayed with him for a night and partied like crazy.
Arizona - New Mexico. Saw the Carlsbad Caverns...an amazing gorgeous and 10x Batman level caves.
New Mexico - El Paso - Spent a night at a hotel in El Paso and just went out solo. Got insanely drunk, met a ton of girls, had a ton of fun.
El Paso - Austin - Some cousins live in Austin so stayed with them for two nights.
Austin - Louisiana - Nothing much to say. Just stopped for a night.
Louisiana - Atlanta - Got to my new place.
Under a thousand. That's not bad. I'd thought it'd a couple of grand.
I'm contemplating on a cross-country road trip or very "budgetty" backpack trip somewhere. Either winter break or spring break, depends on how much I still owe my car for.
