    I did the GS back in Sep07 and i budgeted about 100USD a day for everything. Way over budgeted but still didnt have to scrimp on anything Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    I agree with BigMal- $100 US a day is a great guideline. I did LA to the Bay in Sept 07 and it was more than enough and i pretty much brought what i wanted without wondering if i had enough money. In LA, you could do that stars tour, thats pretty cool as you get to see quite a bit of LA as well as the stars homes. We also did a tour where it went to VEnice Beach and Santa Monica. If you like to shop or people watch the Beverly Centre is great for that, especially the people watching…. ooohh how the other half live !!! Hope that helps.
