April 2022 Budget

April included a trip from Texas to Montana with multiple stops along the way. High gas prices aside we always spend more when we are traveling because we pay more for campgrounds, activities, souvenirs, and of course gas. With all the things we did in April I actually think $6800 is very reasonable. Please see below for more details.

Campsite Fees – $1,000 for fees on the move is really good for us and Lee’s idea of having us stay in more county and city parks is not only fun but saves in the wallet.

Entertainment – $635 was again not bad because it included first time visits to Fort Worth and Arkansas.

Dining Out – $625 was largely two meals we had with friends of mine in Fort Worth and additional “experience” meals during our travels. We are doing a much better job of not eating out as much on travel days.

Groceries – This is over $1K but by design. Anticipating higher costs and less choice in a small town like Yellowstone we stocked up on everything we could, using a lot of our basement space for non perishables.

Truck Fuel – $1414 isn’t totally awful considering how far we traveled. We worked really hard to use whatever method we needed to (EFS card, Gas Buddy, Wholesale club memberships) to get the cheapest prices we could.

We will be staying in one place for the summer with a free campsite so we will see how that impacts the budget.
