East by Southeast

From my parking spot near Salton sea I drove to Yuma, Arizona and on toward Tucson. As I drove I began some mental calculations and came to some conclusions. I concluded that I could not now afford long term travel in the US. I find that to enjoy myself these days it costs me a minimum of about $200 a day while driving my own vehicle.
I continued my claculations and was forced to conclude that not only could I not afford long term travel in the US, but that I could not afford to do so even without a car and in cheaper `third world` countries. So, not only am I too old and weak for varieties of travel, but also do not have the wealth to do so within my comfort zone.
Sometimes reality comes with clarity as one drives.
