I can add the FAQ questions to the project info page, but I'm not the best with layout. If someone does a mock up it is easy for me to mimic, or, sputnik could just edit it and tell me and I'll make sure to incorporate it into the code base. I finished this part.

The first year I went, my ticket and ride was gifted to me. I paid for food, water, a little gas and some thrift store goodies. Cheap. Maybe <250$?

As a social experiment, ala Dicky in a box, I think it sounds somewhat interesting. However, as a way of life, I think it sounds a little boring.. Then again, I'm probably choosing to view it only from my angle.
