In March, we visited the following locations in Georgia and Florida:
- A - Macon Area Habitat for Humanity Care-A-Vanner Campground, Macon GA
- B - Starke/Gainesville KOA Campground, Stark FL
- C- Word of Life RV Park, Hudson FL
- D - Savannas Recreation Area Campground, Fort Pierce FL
- E - Phipps County Campground, Stuart FL
- F - North Fort Myers Care-A-Vanner Campground, North Fort Myers FL
We started the month at a Habitat build in Macon GA and finished up with another build in North Fort Myers. Each provided us opportunity to meet and work with some fabulous people.
Good News Areas We Are Under Budget
One thing during the month we didn't spent a lot of money on was diesel fuel. We began the month with a full tank and only had to fill it up once so we were a couple of hundred dollars better than our goal.
Once again, we did even better in the area of spending for campgrounds. We also were well under budget in spending for groceries as well.
Paying off our AT&T contract and then not getting our iPad data plan cancelled has proven to be a challenge. We tried to get the old account paid off and submit it to Verizon for reimbursement. But our account was cancelled in the store so we had no way to access it. Instead we had to wait until it was posted, go to a AT&T service center then take it back over to a Verizon Center for their payment. It was a mess. But we are working through it. To be continued.
Large One Time Cost Item
At $4500 for the month, we continue to spend well over our goal of $4100. In fact, most of our months since the "Fiscal Year" began for us in May 2015, we have spent more than our monthly objective.
Because of the increasing costs we are incurring, Pam and I looked into our Social Security benefit and what we would be getting if we decided to get that on a monthly basis. We are 63. My main goal at the moment is to avoid dipping into our 401k and savings. We'll see what we need to do in the coming months.
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!
