thanks for your interest in my latest Road Trip extravaganza ... Alaska to Cali ... so there is a lot of info below but i want to try to answer any questions you might have ..

Obviously there is no way to tell the exact price of gas but below are the numbers that i am estimating ..

The more travelers the less the cost per person for petrol .....
so the cost for gas/petrol is as follows (all prices are in USDollar) :

$675 per person

the cost for dinner/camping is as follows (we split the cost for nat'l parks in Canada - I have a yearly pass in the states)

$16. per day ($8 dinner/$8 camping) X 28 days camping
(in Vancouver/Seattle/Portland/Vegas we DO NOT camp .. that totals 8 nights budget for hostel/couch surfing/motel, etc)
dinner/camping = 448. per person
other lodging = 160. per person
estimated total = 608. per person

Everyday/spending money varies widely so you should figure that for yourself .. i personally figure/budget about 20. per day for the states because i really don't buy of a lot of stuff because i am fairly nomadic (ok cheap - lol) but you should probably also budget $100-200 (total) for tixs for the music festival if you are interested.

Estimated cost for a trip with 5 people without spending money
$675 for petrol
$608 for camping/dinner
$1208. TOTAL w/o airfare/hostels/couchsurfing

$35. per day per person
(to be driven around/food/camping in
NORTH AMERICA - cheap as chips)

$23. per day British Pound

Let me know if you are interested -safe travels, cheers
