The Distance: 581 miles as we bounced around from Florida’s Gulf Coast to Central Florida and down to Coral Springs. This brings out 2018 total up to 9,722. With our December plans we should easily crack 10K.
The Places: We departed Venice on the first of the month, and then went back and forth between Lake Monroe Park (weekends) and Wekiwa Springs State Park (weekdays) for 22 days before heading south to Coral Springs for five days around Thanksgiving. Then it was over to Periwinkle Park on Sanibel Island to start a one month stay. We had full hook ups for 17 days, partial (electric and water) for 7, and stayed with family for 6.
The Budget: 16% underbudget, which is good, but not what we had hoped for this month considering our limited mileage, four markets, six days staying free with family and another week in the low cost county park on Lake Monroe. This means it will be near impossible for us to get under budget for the year in December since we will be spending three weeks at an expensive place, doing Christmas, and prepping for Key West. Our overage will be a very small percent of the annual budget, so we will get back on track in January.

The Drama and the Improvements: Nothing significant in this arena. After our roof and other repairs/upgrades at the end of October, we are taking a break from anything costly until we get back on budget.
