Dave Price Finding His Way

In our special series, "Dave Price: No Way Home," "Early Show" weather anchor and features reporter Dave Price is traveling across the country with what started out as just $50 to his name.

Catch Up with Dave on Twitter

Last Friday, we left Dave on the Santa Monica pier in California with $50 and a backpack. From there, it was up to him to find his way back to New York.

How did he do?

On Friday, Dave caught a ride from Santa Monica to Orange County. He babysat, did laundry and washed an SUV for a family -- who then took him on a private plane to Las Vegas. Once there, he worked at the CBS affiliate KLAS, reporting traffic and weather for about $5.

Then, he was off to the Retro Bakery, where he earned $10 making frosting. Unfortunately, Dave then lost those funds -- and more -- at the craps table!

So, without any money, Dave slept by the pool at a hotel. He was offered a free room, but as "Early Show" co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez pointed out, he couldn't accept it because he hadn't earned it.

On Saturday, Dave sold a shirt, and made some money back. Then he caught a ride on a Winnebago to Meteor Crater, Ariz., where he slept in the tow car.

Dave woke up on Sunday at a truck stop in Winslow, Ariz., and convinced a trucker to give him a ride to a balloon festival in Albuquerque, N.M.

He checked in with "The Early Show" from there Monday morning.
