Can we make it on $50?


by Hope

I’ve began my second journey to Texas. I’ve a full tank of gasoline and $50. Do you suppose we will make it on that?

Don’t get me improper. I’ll receives a commission tomorrow, so I’ll have entry to some cash…not less than till I pay my payments. And Gymnast truly put $40 in my hand once I drove away yesterday and stated to name if I wanted cash or received caught. (There are just a few days you already know you probably did one thing proper when elevating your children.)

I’ve lined up pals to stick with each cease alongside the way in which there.

I packed a cooler with drinks, apples, cheese, and added some granola bars and peanut butter packets. (All meals from my home versus a particular grocery journey.)

And, after all, I’ve all of the meals and water Addie might have. (Had some distilled water gallons from my ex-fiance’s CPAP in my closet so am utilizing these as her water.)

The Math

So I stuffed the tank of earlier than I left. I’ve $50 available. (Not counting my $40 in money.) And I’ve 1,031 miles to journey.

I get between 350-400 miles per tank of gasoline on the freeway. So it’s going to be actually shut. However I’m going to problem myself. (Not a lot that I’m going to threat operating out of gasoline on the aspect of the highway.) Simply think about if I could make this occur, how far more journey I can do as soon as I’m again on my ft if I get good on the packing and planning to chop down prices.

Right here’s to the lifetime of journey I’m actively looking for. And that is simply the 1st step.
