Another Month Goes By

Time flies!  August is drawing to a close and September arrives tomorrow.  We have moved from Palisades Dam to Idaho Falls.  We will be at the Snake River RV Park and Campground until September 28th.  A highlight of our last week was a trip to Dubois, Wyoming for a work assignment.  Rosie and the pooches rode along and we had a great lunch at the Cowboy Café in downtown Dubois.  Here are some Dubois pictures:

It is great to be back in Idaho Falls.  We got to shop at our favorite Wal-Mart,  picked up a months worth of mail, and attended a gathering of one of our favorite social groups on Thursday night.  I got my truck into my regular and trusted repair shop to diagnose my power steering fluid leak.  Turns out the power steering fluid also works in the power brake turbo-boost system.  This will require replacing a pricey part in the braking system, but the garage will look for a reliable used part on Tuesday to save a $100 or so.  In the meantime, I will keep adding power steering fluid.

Time for the monthly full expense report:

Camping –                            $456 ($14.70 per night)

Diesel Fuel when pulling –  $308.50

Truck Repairs/Service –      $176.78

Generator Gas/Propane -     $0

Satellite TV/Radio –            $103

Total for August        $1,044.28

Thanks for stopping by.

What a neat looking town. But no break downs allowed! Ever. None. (I hope my rig can hear this too)

Beautiful Pics. Should add in a total of what it costs to eat whether at the rig or eating out. Happy Hours not necessary.Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.

Hi Rick and Kathy,

I don't include food and dining expense because I think those costs represent different food quality preferences for each individual. I will say that we seldom eat out and that our food costs have risen about 10% as a monthly average since we often have to shop in small town markets where prices are higher than the Wal-Mart Supercenters we prefer.
