Roadrunner Financials - April 2012

Roadrunner Recap

After our time at Patrick AFB we drove over to the Orlando/Kissimmee area to spend some time with Marg and Bill.  We also flew from there to Houston to attend Nephew Mark and fiancee Dean-na's wedding.
At the church for the wedding
  • Patrick AFB Famcamp, Cocoa Beach FL
  • Tropical Palms Resort, Kissimmee FL
  • Kings Bay Naval Station, GA
  • Hunter Army Airfield Campground, Savannah GA
  • Fort Bragg Smith Lake Campground, Fayetteville GA 
We also went over to Savannah GA and toured around the city and joined up with friends Road and Lisa who were there from Michigan.  Here we are in downtown Savannah at Tubby's:
I remember a couple of things about that meal:  the margaritas that Lisa had and the cheese grits I had for dinner.  The grits were the about the best I've ever had!

Later at Fort Bragg, I remember the new campground sites that had very big concrete pads with the sewer connections on the PS side.  What?  Sometimes you wonder if people who run or build RV campgrounds have ever seen one....

Here's an interactive map of where we camped during the month. Click on the letters (waypoints) to see locations:

Or if you prefer, a static map of travels during the month:

Here's a snapshot of our spending for the month:

Good News Areas We Are Under Budget
 We were under budget this month for RV Maintenance and Groceries.

Biggest Expenses
Wedding and golf and diesel fuel

Large One Time Cost Item
Car rental in Houston:  $94
Hotel in Houston for wedding:  $185
Golf with Bill at Legends GC and golf shirts etc:  $184

Monthly Average
Oops - tough month on the budget coming in at $1357 over!

 Our numbers were better than previous months but it is pretty clear we are well over for the year (May to June).

I have often said this is more of a tracking tool and an estimate than a budget -- this month's spending proves it.  That's what our spending looked like for the month.  Thanks for taking a peek.  Hopefully they provide help or entertainment of some sort...

If you'd like a free copy of the spreadsheet I use, drop me a note and I will be glad to send it along.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
