Final Camping Costs of 2014

Once again, we’re wrapping up the year in Los Angeles visiting with friends and family.

Pictured above is my girlfriend’s daughter and her Fisher Price Camper from the ’70s.

Tonight we’re tacking $5 on to the camping bill for the year, if you want to see what our spot looks like, it’s exactly the same as last year.

That brings us to an $810.50 difference between this year and last. We don’t really set out to spend more or less on camping, we just find it interesting that the best things in life are free.

Happy New Year everyone! xoxo

    Who took the photo? I am always amazed at the professional quality of the photos you post. What camera is used? This particular shot is incredible as to the colors and clarity.

    Adorable picture! I admit – I immediately went to eBay to see how much one of those campers would cost! (Not that we have any kids or anything like that…) 🙂

    Happy New Year!

      That’s funny – did you find one for sale??

      • Reply Tom January 3, 2015 at 2:44 pm

        Oh yes – for $60-$80! Seems they’re “vintage.” 🙂

    I’m not sure why Burbank issues the parking permit. Are you visiting someone in Burbank or just passing through? Can you just pick a random street? Do you leave the trailer and drive the TV around? Do you know if other cities do this? Thanks.

      We were visiting friends in Burbank, and pulled a large non-commercial vehicle permit. I doubt they want people sleeping in their RV’s but you can’t really tell if someone is inside or not. I don’t know of any other cities that do this, but we sure appreciate it!
