This is one of our busiest travel months ever. The cost of diesel fuel reflects that.
We made 10 different stops along our route from Boise Idaho, along the Oregon Trail and Columbia River, to the State Capitol in Salem. Then we headed for the Pacific Coast and spent some wonderful days along it before we saw the Redwoods and ended up in Travis AFB, California.

We have our diesel fuel back in line after a couple of months of big mileage. We were also pleased to see the decrease in eating out. Those expenses can really add up!
One of our largest expense was gas for the car. But even when we add up diesel and gas, together we are under budget. Campgrounds were a little high - we had 31 one days in the month at $20 so we were a little over. In the 'Misc' category we bought gifts for Christmas and some sandals which amounted to about $150.
Large One-Time Cost Items
Gifts in the 'Misc' category was the biggest.
After three months in our new 'Fiscal Year' - I am pleased with the results that show us to less that $65 over budget.
That's brief recap of the finances for August ~ Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
