What about making a section, on this site, to give information to rock bottom budgeting travellers? Ones who want/need to travel on as little money as possible?

It could have info, about the cheapest way, to get everything, in various places.

I usually find these things, in countries, but it takes time. If I knew the information, before I arrived, in the countries, it would be so helpful.

The section could give countries and items, and people could say how cheaply they bought them for and where. Then just keep the cheapest, on the list, so it does not become messy and difficult to print and browse.

Just out of interest, who is interested, in this information?
Post yes, or no.

Sounds good and long as it doesn't end up too cluttered and difficult to find what your after...

Which is exactly what will happen, of course. Not a good idea; people can post requests for such information in the appropriate forums that already exist.

btw, Mel, on a completely, different note, smt that, I've been curious about for, a long time, now. What's, the deal, with your usage of, the comma?;)

Hello Neils

The idea, is that every item in each place only has one entry, which will be updated, when/if somebody finds a cheaper one.

Commas or whatever, have nothing at all to do with the cheap backpacking section.

Mel, I don't mind the idea. But I don't see how it is manageable either and it would be an absolute magnet for spammers!

What might be an idea is to start a blog discussing these things, kind of similar to the travel photography blog.

Thats a good idea, Peter.
Basically, what i think would be useful for me and others like me is any inforamtion gathering system, to do continuous research, on cheap backpacking. For the how far can i get, on 100 euros type of backpacking.

For such a blog to come into existence, it would require a member keen on the topic to be managing and promoting it ;)

hint hint..
