earn it on the way!

STEP FIVE – FOOD AND ACCOMODATION
 Motel rooms cost between \$50 and \$100 a night.
 Campgrounds are usually \$10 to \$20 per person.
 Pitching your tent in the bush (if you don’t get caught) is free.
 Sleeping in the car is free, but it hurts.
 Restaurant meals can be expensive
 Grocery stores are another option for food.
Create an expense list. Every day and night of your trip must be accounted for (you can’t starve,
or go without sleep).

Will you have enough money? Yes / No?
If not, what is your plan to make more?
STEP SIX – OTHER EXPENSES
If you plan to visit anything, pay admissions, pay entrance fees, have spending money, see
entertainment, or buy gifts for people back home, you will also need money.
Do some Internet research and find out how much these things cost, and add them to the list
above.
Put your trip carefully on this map.
