If you were to spend 75 a day (not converted to Euro) every day, you'd have enough to be there 146 days. Say you camp and spent the equivalent of five dollars at a grocery store and that's all and you could get away with $15 a day. Look into work exchanges, where you work part time for room and board. Sometimes you get a bike or use of a car. Some people have worked at bars or hostels on their travels. Usually have better luck in bigger cities.
Central/Eastern Europe is a lot cheaper than Western Europe, so you may want to focus some time in that direction. Lots and lots to see and do.
With the amount you plan to go with, you should be fine for quite a while, especially if you're smart with your money.
Don't forget you'll have to make payments on your credit cards if you have a balance. Make sure you can work that out before relying on them as a means rather than an emergency backup.
