I'm not sure how you do your math, maybe you counted free airline tickets into you calculations. From what I can see it is a 1200 flight for 2. I dont' see any way to rent an RV, eat, sleep and fish for $800.
I am in no way bemoaning my lot in life, because there are about 6 billion people in the world who would love to trade places with me, but $2000-3000 is a very expensive vacation as far as my bank account is concerned. I've never been on a $2000 vacation anywhere. When we went 17 days through Montana, Yellowstone, Idaho, and Wyoming we spent 16 of our 17 days in a tent and ate from a cooler in the hatch of my Toyota Yaris.
