These  are  my  totals  from  my 2014  hike


I could probably of cut my food  bill down a bit  but  then  there was a fair amount of beer  in that total  as i  was so amazed  with all the micro breweries that they had  to be sampled , These  costs also have gas or butane costs in

Postage Costs

Again i could of  possible shaved $100 off of this, being green at the beginning i sent myself  stuff i didn’t need .  Also as i am from the UK i was also a tourist and my mother loves to receive  postcards

Town Costs

Being unorganized  at  first i often got to town late missing the post office, so then  had  to wait  till Monday, costing me more in  accommodation, food and beer costs

Replacement costs

well i replaced  several  large pieces of kit  at  the start , and then switched to trail runners a new tent  and  poles
