Just making some SWAGs from the perception of others on how the younger ADV crowd funds their travel.

Mom and Dad 50%
Trust fund 20%
Ask for money from others 20%
Save or work their way around 5% or less
Other means (legal or otherwise) 5%

Don't want to beat the entitlement drum too hard. I still have friends in their 40's and close to 50 that are dependent upon their parents for their "lifestyle."

Be careful disclosing some of your details because there are plenty of folks here that live by the EF Hutton commercials of the Reagan years about "earning it". I am not a fan of entitlements myself, but I am not going to bash on those that have such good fortune too hard either, unless they begin to get a bit braggard.
