The Shoestring Catch


Expenses

In this space I will detail all of my expenses. I think it will be useful for people who might want to emulate this trip to know what things cost in different cities and see price break downs. Also, if you know what everything costs, then you can pick and choose what you think is important to spend on. Maybe you’d rather have a slightly better seat at Camden Yards than those second and third beers at the bar in Philadelphia. The choice is yours and yours alone, we all have different priorities. Note: Gas is being split three ways, but not perfectly. We just each take turns filling up. I will list what each tank of gas cost and who bought it, but only my personal gas purchases will show up in the pie charts.
