I’m a single, financially-independent, unemployed, full-time student. I’m hoping to start grad school this fall. I am making a conscious choice not to seek full-time employment this summer, and I’m aware of financial implications that has.
That being said, I’m frugal. I’m trying to plan an efficient route, and I’m looking for free or dirt cheap accommodations along the way. I’ll be spending time at my Dad’s house in Tennessee; with my godkids and their parents in South Carolina; and with other friends, relatives, and tweeps * along the way.
Recently on Twitter, while discussing my excursion into Canada, my friends informed me that I must try poutine. Soon more Canucks and their sympathizers added a stop at Tim Horton’s to my itinerary, where I am required to try Timbits and a Double Double. I am all for trying new things, but I’ve got a budget. :-) So, if you would like to donate to the Poutine Fund, I’ll humbly accept your donation.
You can donate via PayPal by clicking the button in the left sidebar.
In reality, I’ll use your donations for more than just poutine. :-) After PayPal takes their cut, all donations will be used for gasoline, lodging, and food. Of course, if you would prefer to donate without letting PayPal take a portion of the funds, I’m sure we could work something out. Send me an email, please. Any amount is welcome.
Hams: I’ll be operating between 80m – 2m phone from 23 states**. I hope that I can help you work toward your WAS award or maybe get a county or grid that you’ve been hunting.
73 de NR4CB, Connie

** and 2 provinces; and possibly DC if I can find a place to park and operate there; and hopefully as W1AW in late June; and as WA4USN aboard the USS Yorktown in early August
