Roadrunner Financials - February 2011

Roadrunner Recap
In the month of February we traveled from our NOMADS work area in Moss Point MS to the military campground at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson AZ.   Along the way we attended Mark and Megan's wedding in Houston.  We also made our way over to see Joe and Francis at Fort Clark in Brackettville TX.  Before the month was done we spent time at Big Bend National Park and at the very nice military campground in Tucson at Davis-Monthan AFB/Agave Gulch FamCamp.  Here are the locations where we dropped anchor:
  • Moss Point MS
  • Pine Crest RV, Slidell MS
  • San Jacinto RV Resort, Houston TX
  • Brooks AFB City Base
  • Fort Sam Houston RV Travel Camp, San Antonio TX
  • Fort Clark TX
  • Lost Alaskan RV, Alpine TX
  • Saguaro Co-Op Escapees Park, Benson AZ
  • Davis Monthan FamCamp, Tucson AZ

Good News Areas We Are Under Budget
 Our biggest gains on our target numbers for the month were in campground fees and RV maintenance. We spent quite a bit of the month at Moss Point which was free of charge.  

Biggest Expenses
Diesel fuel was the biggest drag on the bottom line this month.  It was over 1500 miles and we didn't get more than 7.4 mpg on average.

Large One Time Cost Items
None this month.

Monthly Average
In February we were $750 under budget which was nice.
The other monthly averages show that at this point in our year we are running about $300 over what we want to be spending.  We are almost $100 over on average in terms of gas for the Honda.  We have found that we usually end up driving as many miles in our Honda as we do in the Roadrunner.  All in all though, we are not unhappy with these numbers.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles.  If you ever decide you'd like to have a free copy of my spreadsheet, give me a shout out and I'd be happy to pass it along.
