I am about to take a trip across country. I am taking my motorcycle as it is 1/2 the cost of my 4x4 SUV. I will be going about 8,000 miles roundtrip. I would like to look at the locations that my father, mother, and brother live to see if the employment is better since living with one of them would make a transition like this easier. I am a freelance drafter and would like to either pick up more clients or see if the job market in their locations needs my services. I will also be working on existing client's projects during the trip on my laptop. The trip will be about 4 weeks long.
My question is - what can I write off for my business? I have had a home office for years and my business has been part time until I was laid off a year ago. Now I'm barely getting business and am looking for other work or even locations.
