Roadrunner Financials - August 2010

Roadrunner Recap
We spent some of the month in Canada before returning to the States and making our way down to Texas to help Kelly move back to Virginia Along the way we also stopped in Red Bay AL to get some items fixed.
Our campgrounds during the month included:

  • Talon Lake Canada
  • Wright-Patterson AFB FamCamp (Dayton, OH)
  • Arkadelphia Campground, AR
  • Dallas TX (Plantation Place RV Park)
  • Red Bay (Allegro Campground Service Center)

We wanted to be in Sarnia, Ontario for Brad and Christine's Wedding the middle of August and had some time to go to Lake Talon to see Jeff and Tiffany.  After the wedding, we drove to Dallas, TX to help Kelly pack up for her move back to Virginia.

Good News Areas We Are Under Budget
The only areas we were under budget were in RV Maintenance and Eating out.

Biggest Expenses
We put a lot of miles on the RV and used a lot diesel which accounted for $700 and a major area of overages. Another large item was remodeling done by Chris Berry to upgrade the bedroom TV cabinet.

Large One Time Cost Items
Our largest 1 Time Cost item was the purchase of a new TV for the bedroom.  We got rid of our old deep backed TV and had Chris Berry remodel the TV area into a cabinet with doors for more storage.

Monthly Average
At over almost $1900 over budget it was not a good month expense wise.  Despite that we are only $550 over budget.  Good thing we take the long view -- the yearly and monthly averages.

Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles.
