Roadrunner Financials - May 2014

Roadrunner Recap
We spent a few weeks in Albuquerque visiting Reid and Amy before driving east to Lubbock TX where we spent some time with friends Jojit and Kimberly and their kids.  Then it was on to Fort Worth for a 'Warner Bros Reunion'.  Brad and Sue hosted Reid and Amy, Marty and Elena and Pam and I for a great week together.  Next we ended up in Red Bay at the Tiffin Service Center to get some yearly maintenance and some upgrades on the Roadrunner.

  • Kirtland AFB FamCamp - Albuquerque, NM
  • Loop 289 RV Park - Lubbock, TX
  • Cowtown RV Park - Aledo, TX
  • Ameristar RV Park - Vicksburg, MS
  • Allegro Campground - Red Bay, AL
Good News Areas We Are Under Budget

Biggest Expenses
Our biggest expense was probably the regular maintenance on the Roadrunner.  While we were in Red Bay we took it into Bay Diesel and paid the $1200 bill.

Large One Time Cost Item
Paint job at Bruce Deaton's Custom Paint and Body shop: $380.  Driving through Louisiana we had an old 5th wheel pass us and as it did, the rear PS window worked itself loose and flew off hit us between the headlights.  Yikes!  It impacted at the rubber seal piping around the corner of the window and shattered into a 1000 pieces.  

Monthly Average

Our monthly expenses were well above ($1680) the monthly budget.  On average our monthly number increased yet again.  Ugh.  So for the last 12 months, we were $1237 over budget each month.  Looks like I need to adjust the budget to reflect our spending a little better.

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!
