The $200 Challenge is headed to Northern Vermont!
Camping was a bit of a difficult decision – after all, it might be cold, wet, or just too much work. And New England is famous for it’s beautiful inns and B&B’s. But given that we have a total budget of $200 for two people for two nights, it was the only way to go.
The final cost was $48. This breaks down as $20 per night per site, $6 reservation fee, and $1 per day as a pet fee. Here’s where things got a bit tricky for us. We are still figuring out if our dog will come with us or if friends will be joining us. So we hedged our bets and paid the pet fee just in case and booked a “premium” camp site that cost $20 a night instead of $18 so we would have room for two tents if need be.
So far, this represents 24% of the budget spent on accommodations. Given the anticipated gas budget, we've already spent half our money! Hopefully the remaining $100 will go a long way!
