Tentative Trip Costs
- Flights (From Colorado Springs to Anchorage and back) - $1400
- RV (More detail about this in it's own article) - $1500 (Plus $500 deposit)
Misc. Fees / Food / Parking / Licensing / Gas
With the gas prices escalating like they are we wanted to play it safe.
We figured our RV will get approx. 9 miles to the gallon. We also figured that gas will cost $5.00 per gallon (which is high) Since our planned trip is about 1400 miles we used the following calculation to figure out gas costs. (1400 / 9) * 5 = ~$800
So $800 for gas, and we budgeted an additional $900 for other costs and to dip into if our $1000 each runs out.
A total of $1700 is factored into these misc. fees.
Misc Spending Money
We have planned spending no more that $1,000 each on activities.
In total we are taking $3,700 with us for the trip.
