The Cost of Camping
Yesterday I emailed our friend Bert to see if by chance they were in the area. To our surprise, he and Janie are here as well as Don and Nancy and Adam and Susan who we hadn't seen since 2008! We had a really fun and loud evening catching up. Back to my new years resolution. I've figured out that we spent a total of $10,429.04 on camping last year. Making our daily average rate $28.57. Which puts us somewhere around $860/month. ($60 more a month than what we paid for our little house with the awesome sunrises on Lummi Island!) Last year we only spent 25 nights boondocking, and they were definitely our favorite nights. Anyway, if you're interested, here is our breakdown of camping in 2012. So here's the question. We spent $725 on a month of camping in December, with a few days rolling into January. In my previous posts I prorated that and counted it towards money spent this year on camping. Though in my spreadsheet the money came out of our pocket in December so I fully attributed it towards camping last year. So technically, no money has come out of our pockets so far this year for camping. How would you prefer to see us do the math? Obviously I would love to just reset it to zero so our average spent on camping is zero so far this year. Let me know what you think.
