"We've done 15,000 miles in nine months and have spent $5,571 on gasoline, an average of $619 a month," Mr. Read wrote in an e-mail message. "Here's the way we look at it: Most people have a regular job and spend about $400 a month seeing the same 20-mile route day after day. We spend slightly more than that seeing of all of North America."
