the grand canyon and my not-so-grand budget

thanks, cassie, for the recommendation. now, i need a recommendation of how to obtain an extra $87...and a way to not look like a mutant.

speaking of cash/money, I was very recently invited to take a road trip with two of my good high school class friends down to the grand canyon and do some camping/hiking. I've been crunching numbers to see if there's any way I can make it work. If I can pick up some extra shifts, perhaps. Or I may tap into my "emergency fund," seeing how I may or may not ever have a chance like this again. The trip will be relatively cheap, but I'd basically miss a pay period and would have to buy a backpack.

I just need to postpone responsibility for a while.

P.S. Did you know you can feed the fish? :)

I am so jealous! the Grand Canyon is hands down my favorite place on earth (so far.....I haven't travelled enough to make that assertion). It's so beautiful; words simply cannot describe. I would recommend going if at all possible.

I, too, have a very nice backpack that you can take, if you'd like. Tom helped me pick it out, so it's quality.
