After doing hours and hours of reading on these forums, and others, right back to even 2005 it seems noone has done this, so I thought I'd be the first!
I'm going to keep this thread up to date with every. single. cost. that I incur going to camp. Should provide valuable information for others this year, and in years to come. Of course my situation will be very different to a lot of others but hey, its a starting point right? For me, this is my first time travelling, I've never even been off the East coast of Australia. So I'll have a heap of additional expenses to. I'm also planning on doing the trip no expense spared, so its not exactly a budget trip!
Since beginning planning this trip I've also decided that I'm heading round the world after camp, travelling for a few years, so I'll try and keep the costs separate, so people can see what costs I incurred to do camp, and the rest is more just a record for myself. Spot the accountant.
