Doing the US on the cheap
I met Falk and Reina, a German couple, travelling on budget of $10 a day!!! This put me to shame!!!
They have to pay for fuel and gas and thats out it. There are loads of free campgrounds here - sometimes they require a bit of searching. In most National or State Forests you can camp for free if you are a 1/4 mile from the main road.
I met 2 guys (one 70 years old) who are travelling by bicycles around the US. They just stop and go 25metres of the road in the desert of Arizona and set up camp.
Falk and Reina have also had loads of genuine American hospitality by being offered free accommodation when knocking on doors looking for camp sites.
Thought this might help...
