Trip Statistics

For those interested in such things, I have decided to write a page with some statistics about my trip. Hopefully some will be useful to someone and some will probably just be odd but here they are anyway.

 1. Trip Costs: Prices in US dollars. Sorry for the bad formatting of the trip cost portion. I made a table and could never get it to line up correctly. No matter what I do it keeps going back to what is below. If anyone is interested I can send them a nice table that I made that also has the infomation.

    Welcome back Barry, What the heck am I going to do on Monday mornings now? I think you should spend six months in Central/South America just so I can read about it! If you need a job e-mail me.
