Hey Guys,

Right so me and a friend are planning on travelling America for 3 months, now we want to do an Intrepid/Suntrek tour for a month of the three months which includes accomodation but does not include food, im just wondering a rough budget for how much i'll need for each month??

Also any recommendations on where to go, ive done a tour from Los Angeles to San Francisco and thought it was AMAZZZZINNNG!!!

Would love to work over there for a bit but trying to save a working visa until i have enough money :P

Any help would be great!!

I would say:

3 meals fast food - $16. a day

2 meals fast food + 1 cafe meal with tip - $25. a day

what about some volunteering or similar.

I've met a few people on my travels who've done WWOOFing they enjoyed it and recommended it.

Some friends of mine have volunteered in Pisco, Peru (to help earthquake survivors; I know you're not going to S/America but there should be similar situation in N/America).

I say about 30-40.00 per day, if you want to splurge.
A good trick, is look for happy hour specials. You get some tasty morsels, and cocktails at a great rate. Cool thing about big cities, especially in LA and the City ( San Francisco) you can find awesome deals if you mind your surroundings.
If you traveled with Suntrek on your California adventure, you might have stayed at my hotel, going to Yosemite!

Make your way to Arizona, Grand Canyon is a must see!
