A recap of our winter

Well I sat down and added everything up Very interesting

We drove 6147 miles on the trip
Pulled the trailer 3756 miles
It was 1853 miles to our first park in Texas that we stayed at for a month
We bought 593.25 Gals of fuel
That averaged out to 10.38 MPG
We spent 2076.16 on fuel Now we have to pay for it
We paid $542.05 in Campground fees except for the two months we were parked. That amounted to 450 for the two months. Plus electric. Can't find the first bill We paid 74 for our time in mission. We stayed a few extra days there to wait for the debit card to get there. I think it was the 7th on March when we left. Our electric in mission was probably higher than normal as we ran out of propane and had to use the electric heater one night.  We also paid for our camping at the retiree rally. But that was paid last year when we were at Ladson for the last one. All in all we had a great winter. Sure better than what we have been having here. 
Well guess that's it for now.  We will not go out again till the last weekend of April over to Ohio for a camp out there at Urbana. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

PS  I think Eli is glad to be home. He ran like crazy in the house the day we got home. Lot more room in the house than the trailer 


  1. Wow! That is a lot of miles and a lot of fuel but you saw a lot and did a lot. I can't believe the weather we have been having. The last few days have definitely not felt like spring and the forecast doesn't look all that good. Sure hope May is better than April.

  2. That is a lot of miles, beyond the towing miles, but you did do a lot of side trips. Maybe your cold weather is coming from the same storm we had last week. We had snow on Wed. night, then the tornadoes started in Okla. and Ark. and then it all moved east. I think they are saying it all came from the same storm system.

  3. Your mileage is about the same as what we get. I thought maybe you might get a little bit better mileage. Of course, we have not towed enough to really know what we would get. Seems like this vacation was better for you then last year (at least reading your blog).
