Hi all! It's been quite a while since I have posted on here. While I still try checking in from time to time, my time on the internet has been limited.
My wife and I have now been on the road for over 1 month. We are on a trip to visit all 50 States in the U.S.A. and to date we have been to 18 of them. (Driving 48 and flying to Alaska and Hawaii)
Our goal is to finish 49 by December and then fly to Hawaii in early January to complete the trip.
Many times we get the question, "How can you afford this trip?"
The truth is, my wife and I are not wealthy by any means, we simply planned and saved up over a year to make this trip possible.
We purchased a Toyota Prius specifically for this trip to save on gas, we do Mystery Shopping to save on food and we have only paid for accommodations when we went to Alaska and every other night was spent either camping in our car or staying with family or friends.
We also visit a lot of free places and bought a Annual pass to national parks so we only paid the fee of $80 + shipping.
This is truly the journey of a lifetime for my wife and I but we hope by doing it to inspire others that it is possible even if you don't have a lot of money.
If you have any questions about the trip feel free to ask.
Also, if you know of any other ways we can save money on the road on food, gas or lodging or any other travel hacks that might help, please share your experience with us!
I will try to log on here as often as possible and will definitely be on here more once this trip is finished and life gets back to normal.
