Memorial Weekend Trip

David is coming on from his business trip early, and will have a 4 day weekend, so we're going to my parents house in Florida. Here is our budget for that trip:

$30 gas (The truck is already full, so we'll need a little more, but not much.)
$20 food (Since we stay at me parents house we'll eat here, but probably get McD's for lunch while traveling to and from.)
$50 Misc (We might go to the dirt track depending on the weather, but no other real plans. We'll probably spend some time fishing and grilling out if the weathers good.)

So my goal for this 4 day trip (Fri-Mon) is to spend less then $100! I think it's totally do-able, but I just have to remember to write it all down. I have a bad habit of not balancing my checkbook while I'm out of town. I don't ever overdraft it, but I often spend more because I don't realize how much I've already spent.

Everyone have a relaxing and safe Memorial Day!!!
