huh....cash or credit? i don't think it matters to fall under the heading "credit card touring." (*)
point is you're paying for lodging and meals, not cookin' n campin'.

i stay in guesthouses, so didn't vote. my loaded touring days are long ago,
back before the intertubes and you had to make hotel reservations by fax.

get a brick of bills that can weight a couple pounds....]
