Roadrunner Financials - August 2012

Roadrunner Recap
The event of a lifetime was getting to walk our daughter 'down the aisle' in an outdoor ceremony during her wedding to Jonathan (Jon).  It was a beautiful day!
We spent the month over in the military campground before driving west to Tennessee for a few days to see Joan and Mike and our 'Roadrunner RV Resort and Campground'.
  • Ocean Pines RV, Oceana NAS Campground, Virginia Beach VA
  • Greensboro Campground, Greensboro NC
  • Roadrunner Campground and RV Resort, Maynardville TN
Here's an interactive map of where we camped during the month. Click on the letters (waypoints) to see locations:

Or if you prefer, a static map of travels during the month:

Good News Areas We Are Under Budget
Here's a snapshot of our spending for the month:



Biggest Expenses
Our biggest spending was in food:  groceries and eating out. It also included some beverages for the wedding.

Large One Time Cost Item
Wedding beverages: $249.11

Monthly Average
The monthly average continues to be under the budget but is on a steady incline beginning in June.  Diesel fuel continues to be above target levels.  All in all, we are very pleased with our spending levels the last few months.
I have often said this is more of a tracking tool and an estimate than a budget -- this month's spending proves it.  That's what our spending looked like for the month.  Thanks for taking a peek.  Hopefully they provide help or entertainment of some sort...  If you'd like a free copy of the spreadsheet I use, drop me a note and I will be glad to send it along.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
