Road Trip, Final Tally

This is what it cost us for two weeks away:


Gas
$213.28
Tolls
37.28
Parking
12.00
Food/Beverage
399.43
Accommodations (11 nights)
604.43
Host Gratuity (3 nights)
60.00
Misc
29.61
TOTAL
$1356.03
 

Even though we cooked meals in several nights at the guest house, a few of those restaurants (not necessarily one's we would have chosen) proved a bit pricey.  But we would have had to eat even if we stayed home.   $678 per person for 14 days is not too bad.  Sleeping is a strange activity in itself.  When you think that it costs more to sleep than to eat, it seems stranger still.  But there are hotel rooms that cost more for one night than we spent on our entire trip.  Total milage, including side trips: Home - St. Pete - Ft. Lauderdale - Home, roughly 3,400 miles.  We're saving our soda and beer cans for the next trip (actually Leon want to go to Detroit for the Lambda Car Club Show in August, so, if he takes those cans and bottles with him, he can get 10 cents apiece instead of 5 like they did on Seinfeld).

So about $50 a day per person. Not too bad I guess for this day and age.

Though I can remember a day and time when I was a kid and my father thought paying $8.00 a night for a motel room was just highway robbery! Grin.

Glad you guys made it back okay, hope the trip did you good.
