Motorcycle Travel Scenario: 3 Days, 3 Items, $300

Motorcycle Travel Scenario: 3 Days, 3 Items, $300

It’s fun to daydream about hitting the road. Want to play a little scenario game?

You have 3 days, 3 items & $300Maine World City Road Sign

  • You have $300 in cash for all expenses
  • You have 3 days to ride
  • You can choose only 3 items from home to put in your tankbag

The basic premise of this scenario is that you’re leaving home with just the cash in your pocket.

[edit] Your 3 items from home can be anything at all. Clothing, toothbrush, etc. But you can only pick 3. You can acquire anything else you might want out of your $300 budget on the road.

What else you need to know:

  • You have a camera or a cellphone – but not both.
  • You have a map or gps – but not both.
  • You have rain gear.
  • You happen to have 2 vouchers for overnight stays in motels.
  • You have the toolkit that came with your motorcycle.
  • You have no credit cards.

[edit] The items in the above list don’t count against your 3 items from home.

So, Where To?

From where you live right now – where would you go and what would you bring with you?

  • Would you be able to rely on the help of strangers should you find yourself in need?
  • Do you choose a map or a GPS?
  • Camera or cellphone?
  • Do you have any tips for finding free stuff that you might use along the way?

With gas tank fill-ups ranging around $15 – $20 these days, $100 a day doesn’t go nearly as far as it used to. Looking forward to seeing how you would stretch your dollars!
