Great American Road Trip: August/September Spending Report

As the time on our Great American road trip was winding down and we had returned from Alaska, we assumed the best was behind us. Nearly a year on the road and over forty states visited, we would’ve been okay if it was all over as the original plan dictated. The renters were supposed to be out in July which would have brought us back, but instead a one month… and then two month extension meant our travels weren’t quite over yet.

With our new found time, we were on to some of our favorite places in the US, which we hadn’t even visited on this trip yet: Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. We planned to meet up with friends in Colorado, see the eclipse in Wyoming and continue exploring around Yellowstone. If there was only one thing we’ve learned from our travels, it’s this: there’s always more to see. And to finish it all up since I’ve been quite behind, I’ll present August and September in this post, before completing a final post of our total expenses for the year.
