Roadrunner Financials - September 2014

Roadrunner Recap
During the month of July, we were in the following locations:
  • Camp Meade RV Campground - Fort Meade, MD
  • Beacon Hill Camping - Intercourse, PA
  • Assateague State Park - Berlin, MD
  • Kiptopeke State Park - Cape Charles, VA
We spent time in the DC/Fort Meade area primarily to be near Adam and Melissa who live in Chevy Chase, MD.  They are about 45 minutes from Fort Meade, but there are not a lot of options closer to them.  Next, we traveled to Amish Country in Lancaster County to see friends Mike and Sue in New Holland, PA.  On our way down the Eastern Shore, we stopped a for a few days at both Assateague State Park and Kiptopeke State Park where we ended up staying through the Labor Day Weekend to wrap up the month of August.

Good News Areas We Are Under Budget
We had a good month in the following areas:

  • Diesel fuel
  • RV maintenance
  • Campground fees and 
  • 1 Time costs

Biggest Expenses
I paid our semi-annual insurance payment which caused a spike.  Other areas were

  • Groceries and
  • Misc (good fitting hiking boots)

Large One Time Cost Item
Our large one-time cost item for the month was our Medical/colonoscopies.  Results were good but as you know, they are not the most fun thing in the world.  Necessary evil.

Monthly Average

That's a snapshot of how we're feeling about the cost of things on this Full-Time Journey.  We are in month 63 of doing it.

Hopefully, some of the thoughts and figures are of some interest/value/curiosity.  If you'd like a blank spreadsheet of what I use I'd be glad to send you it at no charge to do with what you wish.  

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
