Deb Walter, a teacher at Rogers New Technology High School, pictured above spent the summer exploring the West on a budget of $1,200. She lived out of her car, with her kayak and mountain bike, traveling wherever her whims took her.

If teacher Deb Walter wrote about how she spent her summer vacation, her report would be thick as a book.
