Roadrunner Financials - April 2016

Roadrunner Recap
In April, we visited the following locations along the Florida Gulf Coast and into Central Florida:
  • North Fort Myers Habitat for Humanity Campground, North Fort Myers FL
  • Phipps County Campground, Stuart FL
  • Pelican Roost Campground, Mayport Naval Station FL
  • RVacations Campground, Selma NC
  • Sea Mist RV Campground, Virginia Beach VA
Here's an interactive map of where we camped during the month. Click on the letters (waypoints) to see locations:

Good News Areas We Are Under Budget
Our budget took a major hit with our power steering and new struts we needed in the Honda CRV.

We had a very good month budget-wise.  We drove a lot and therefore paid for a lot of gasoline.  We also ate too much and spent too much for Christmas.

Biggest Expenses
We were way over in over in our cell phone bill this month.  We had few places to use wifi so it ate into our data plan.

Large One Time Cost Item
Maintenance on our Honda CRV cost us over $4200 this month!  We had a new power steering unit put in and we needed new struts.  So we had it all done.  The car runs better but these big bills are hard to swallow.  --It still better than buying a new car.

Monthly Average

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!
