Here's an interactive map of our travels:

Or, if you prefer and find this easier to navigate, here is a static map:

We drove from the Memphis area to Virginia Beach after stops in Red Bay and Maynardville TN.

Good News Areas We Are Under Budget

Biggest Expenses
We were over our budget in the following areas:

  • Gas for the car
  • Maintenance
  • Cell phone use (primarily our wifi/data plan) and 
  • Medical (the bills for my July retina surgery

Large One Time Cost Item
Our biggest budget buster for the month was in the maintenance area while we were in Red Bay AL.  We had work done at Bay Diesel (Koni shocks) ($1580) and also had a list of things done at Brannon's (Custom RV) ($1630).

Monthly Average

We September was another tough month on the budget.  The maintenance and medical areas were the culprits this time.

Our monthly averages continue to climb and we will be over our 'hoped for' $4100 monthly budget for the year which ends next month at the end of May.  But we have had an extraordinary amount of Maintenance and Medical bills this year.

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!

  1. Ouch! That was a tough month. Hopefully all the repairs and medical are behind you now.
