Hi Mike,

I retire from the Police in 6 years and tentatively plan on doing 3 to 6 months touring the US, as you did.

Would you mind sharing (pm if you wish), your daily costs for the trip? Motel, food, petrol.

Would you mind also including a rough estimate of your total mileage so I could estimate the cost of running a bike would be?

I know it's 6 years away but I have time to kill this morning and started daydreaming

tia,

Shay.

Hi Shay,

You are reading the only record of my trip.

I had some money and when it ran out I came home. I kept no track of costs or spending (other than checking my statements at the time). The whole purpose of the trip was not to plan...

The trip was 9 years ago, which means any data would be 15 years out of date by the time your trip starts anyway...

I did 43,000 miles, though, if that's any help...

Have a great trip...

Mike

They all made into young adulthood. Amazingly enough.
