We hope to explore new communities and places, learn new things, share our stories and make new friends! Would you be willing to host us :) we're a great family if you ask me lol

    Esbon fest is on August 11th. Everyone is welcome and can camp out for the night if there are no rooms left available in the area. Esbon Kansas is not far from the center of the united states. The locals are very friendly and like to have a good time. Its deep in the plains of Kansas so make sure to be prepared with all your needs. There will be food available till about 6pm and beer is available all night. Volley ball, mud drags, car show and wheel chair racing are a few of the activities to participate in or watch. Hope to see you there.

      leaving NJ on 2/29 and arriving in LA 3/13. I think the biggest concern is going to be logding costs. Going with a friend, and we plan to do some grocery shopping for snacks and small meals to avoid eating out a lot. We're not making many stops, just Nashville, 4Corners and The Grand Canyon are must sees.

      Yes! Few tips - stay with locals (a la Tripping), eat cheaply by buying from grocery stores (convenience stores/gas stations have microwaves you can use to 'cook') and McDonald's rocks for free wifi AND awesome coffee. :)

    For me, budget travel is about getting value. I want to eat, sleep in a REAL place (not a chain) and meet REAL people (not a tour guide). Let's have a cup of coffee/tea and a chat. Bya

      My 2 cents, based on local travel in India -
      In case your trip will take more than 6 hours, prefer traveling by a night train that drops you at your destination by morning. For me it saves a day's boredom and sometimes a night's hotel expense too!

      Good question. I like shopping at local markets or grocery stores, then treating myself to a nice restaurant meal on occasion. In addition to saving money, it's fun to try new foods and see what the locals eat.
