Advice on extreme budget travel from a non-stop traveler. Six years on the road!
I just discovered your blog today and have read most of it and find it quite interesting. I have often thought of going through with a similar plan myself. I am leaving for the Marine Corps in February, where I will receive $1500 a month at the lowest rank, while having all my food and lodging provided for. Afterwards I thought it would be a good idea to invest some of that money in a nice sized truck and put one of those camper things that just enclose the bed, you know what I'm talking about? Then I would just put in a bed and some custom storage compartments for the few possessions I would have (few outfits, cell phone, laptop, bibles). Oh and I would invest in some of those reflective things you put in the windows to keep out heat considering I live in SE Texas. Then just park in front of the WalMart that I work at now and will probably return to when I am discharged from the military. Then my lodging would be free, minus the gas it costs to move it between work, community college, and friends' and families' residences. But whether or not this plan gets set in motion depends on if I am married by that time. In which case I would still try to go as spartan as possible, and just lease the cheapest two-bedroom apartment I can find. One room for me and my wife and one for the kids, who can just sleep on bunkbeds. I have always been confused and somewhat repulsed by the frivolous, imprisoning way the majority of people are content to live these days. It's nice to know I'm not the only crazy one out there lol
The very heart of your writing shilst sounding agreeable at first, did not settle very well with me personally after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but just for a while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one would do well to fill in those breaks. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I will definitely end up being fascinated. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much approximately this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you simply can do with some% to force the massage house a bit, however other than that this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back. miami to orlando transportation
Also, I would like to share another way of traveling and it is finding a cheap transportation method when visiting a specific city. Let's take Florida, USA as an example. Traveling by bus from Miami to Orlando could be expensive but you can use an alternative method of transportation like: www.FloridaTransportation.net - This way, you can save money in tolls, gas and rental car. Hope this example can help you in your next travel adventure. =)
