Flight Expenses

This is short cost summary. It does not include "non-aviation" expenses, like car rentals, motels, etc. Although we planned to sleep in tent, it was pretty tiring, so often we decided to sleep in better places.

Another excluded expense - about $200 - was purchase of all WAC, most of sectionals (for mountainous terrain) and AF/Ds.
