January Expenses

January expenses were a little weird and not really representative of a full time life on the road. I spent the first 12 days living off the good graces of family while the MoFo had some repair work done. I left Oregon on January 13th so camping and travel/fuel expenses didn't really begin to accumulate until then. Those obviously came in way under budget BUT I made up for it by blowing my food budget - mostly due to dining out while staying with family early in the month.

The details are below . . .

MoFo Travels - October / September 2015

My travels from mid October to Thanksgiving, 2015


MoFo Travels - September / October 2015

Books Read 2015

I love to read!  And living on the road has given me more time to read than I've had in the past. One of the great pleasures of the RV life has been sitting in the great outdoors to sip a beer, smoke my pipe and read for an hour or two every day.

Here are some highlights of my 2015 reads:

  • Books read: 31
  • Total pages: 9,539
  • Best book of 2015: The Martian by Andy Weir
  • Funnest book of 2015: Armada by Ernest Cline
  • Surprise great book of 2015: Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee 
  • Worst book of 2015: The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins (So predictable.  So boring.)

And if you really wanna delve into my crazy reading habits, here's a link to the spreadsheet I've maintained over the past 13 years or so . . .
