So I'm going into my freshman year of college in about a month and i've been having a rough last weekish and today I thought to myself why not just leave for a week?! I really want to just get in my car and see how far i can make it in a week and just have it be me and my camera and not have to worry about any of the bullshit of everyday life. I was thinking it would be sick to visit my friends in South Lake Tahoe. But here's the problem... I don't have much for money and it's tough to justify spending money on such a random trip right before starting college. BUT, I feel like I might not ever have the chance to do something like this again. I mean my job is done at the end of next week, so I could just up and leave and not worry about work and I know I'm going to have to get a more serious summer job in the future that might keep me from taking such a trip.
So I guess I'm just looking for some opinions, personal experience, and ideas for getting $400-500 in the next couple weeks :/ I think it would be really good for me to do this, but I also am having a hard time seeing this happening. All my friends and coworkers are saying DO IT DO IT, but my parents are saying no... i'm kind of torn.
And I know there have been threads on this before, but I couldn't find anything useful in the searchbar.
