I don't know if this is the right place to post this, (here, planning & training or money & investing), but here goes. I've seen this subject mentioned in other posts but have yet to find where it has been really discussed. I would like to get some opinions on how much cash to carry with me in my pack or bag? I know there are lots of variables that go into each decision, so I would like to know what others may be carrying and how you came up with the dollar amounts? Here's some numbers I just pulled out of the air... 25, one dollar bills 10, five dollar bills 10, ten dollar bills 5, twenty dollar bills And of course some coins A total of 275 dollars (plus the coins), is this a good amount and do I have it broken up into the denominations correctly? Any feed back would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
