Pardon Me Kid, Can You Spare A Quarter?

      No Comments on Pardon Me Kid, Can You Spare A Quarter?

Rex fished through his pockets for a quarter in search of the only state left to complete the U.S. State quarters map- Michigan. Wow, after ten years of collecting the state quarters we finally had all fifty. Now what?

Well, that map has been laying under Carli’s bed ever since, collecting, not any more quarters, only dust. That’s why it was time to cash in. 
Let’s do the math. Math 20. Fifty states times twenty-five cents = $12.50. Time to sell this ten year investment. Sold $15, to a third grade kid studying the United States and it’s Capitals. No commission fees.
For Carli, $2.50 profit on $12.50. A 20% return. For the kid, a U.S. map for his report and $12.50 in his pockets. Well done.

The travel bug is contagious. I caught it in 1985 while traveling with Hali on a three month backpacking trip through Western Europe. Having a passion for geography, local history & culture, and with a journal in my back pocket, I hope to share our experiences through this blog – whether traveling the well worn rail, or off the beaten trail.

We enjoy hearing from you! Leave us a comment here:
