Living in a van down by the river

This past weekend we made a last minute decision (Friday) to attend the local Oktoberfest. It’s in a little tourist trap of a town (Leavenworth) and of course all the local rooms were booked. The cheapest room we could find was $350 and was about 30 min out of town, requiring a shuttle which cost $60.

Being the cheap ass that I am, I knew I could do better. So I rented a 12 passenger van. I took it home, put the seats in my garage, and tossed in the inflatable mattress and camping gear. It worked out great. We just stumbled back to the van, passed out, and drove home the next morning. Total cost with gas was just under $200.
