Roadrunner Financials - January 2016

Roadrunner Recap
In January, we visited the following locations along the Florida Gulf Coast and into Central Florida:
  • Angler RV Campground, Cedar Keys FL    
  • MacDill AFB FamCamp, Tampa FL
  • SanLan RV Resort, Lakeland FL
  • 12 Oaks RV Campground, Sanford FL       

One of our goals in 2016 was to see more of Florida.  We love certain areas of the state and end up sometimes missing out on the 'backcountry'.  In January we found ourselves in Cedar Key and learned a little bit about the history of that area.
Then it was onto MacDill AFB in Tampa.  We saw friends and visited one of the nation's largest RV shows.  We also spent time in Lakeland, FL seeing Marg and Bill before we moved on to the Orlando area and saw more friends there.


Good News Areas We Are Under Budget
We had a very good month budget-wise.  We drove a lot and therefore paid for a lot of diesel but were still under budget.  We also ate too much and spent too much for Christmas.

Biggest Expenses
One area was an increase in medical.  We had dental bills and also decided to both go to a Physical Therapist which was a bit pricey but we were interested in learning how to deal with foot, tendonitis and flexibility issues.

Large One Time Cost Item
Our biggest overrun was in the area of eating out which is a recurring theme for us.

Monthly Average
Here's a look at the monthly average of the last six months from Jan 2016:

We are still recovering from out big month to get the Roadrunner engine fixed in August.  That month was a big one for us.  But we have steadily decreased our spending so our averages look better.

So that's a recap of where we spent our dollars in January.As always, if you think this spreadsheet might be useful I'd be glad to pass it along at no cost.  Just let me know.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
