phone - $100
misc - $200

So we drifted off the thread and I had my part in it (except for the eating at McDonald's because that was genius talking).

The topic is the above budget for a long term cruiser (talking years) going from place to to place. Some of those months will be higher and some lower, but the location gets taken into account and you vary the time in each to make it work. The $3000/mo is in today's money and you have to be aware of inflation, you either have to spend less each year or have income increase to maintain.

If this budget seems wrong to you (high or low), why and what would you change?

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
