The more money we raise, the more places we can generate healthy smiles!
Based on calculations of 125 days on the road, 18,000 miles of driving,
We estimated 28mpg=
643 gallons x $3/gallon
Oil Changes ~$150
We estimated $25 for every 3,000 miles
We estimated $15/day per person
$85 for an annual pass to the national parks and forests, allowing us to camp for a significant portion of the trip.
We also have many friends and family around the country that have offered to host us.
We estimate that roughly 30 days (of 125) we will need to find other accommodations.
We estimate $100/night.
We estimated about $2,500 per person to account for admissions fees and educational tours.
In order to accomplish
our dream of driving across the United States while generating
healthy smiles, we will simply need to cover
the costs of the basics
(gas, food, and lodging).
We also recognize that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We've researched many amazing cultural and educational opportunities
unique to each state
that we are hoping to experience.
