This is a brief wrap-up of 2011, our SIXTH full year of full-timing!


MOTORHOME MILES DRIVEN 11,356 (6,400 last year: 5,186 in '09; 11,801 in '08, 14,046 in '07; and 15, 097 in '06)
AUTOMOBILE MILES DRIVEN: 15,500 (10,112 last year 10,906 in '09, 13,356 in '08  
14,665 in '07 and  14,000+ in '06)
GALLONS OF DIESEL FUEL PURCHASED:  1.374.2@$3.80 Avg Price/Gal. (775.65 @ $3.08 last year)
AVERAGE MILES PER GALLON:  8.1 this is a drop of .2 mpg from our last 5 years : (
FUEL COST PER MILE:  $.469 ($.373/mile last year,  $.387 in '09  and $.448 in 2008!)

AVG
COST PER NIGHT OF RV "CAMPING": $10.81 (includes all camping,
utilities, camp memberships, "in lieu of" payments, etc), which comes to
$328.70/month "Rent"!
   If we add our "camping" costs  and our diesel fuel costs for the year and divide them by 12, we're only paying $764.85/month - about half of what our rent used to be in a stick and brick home...and we're having the time of our life, visiting friends and family and seeing endless wonders as we travel!!
TOTAL NUMBER OF STATES VISITED IN 2011: 21 (+ Ontario & Quebec, Canada)                  5 Yr Total: 44 States/4 Provinces (Of course we also flew to Spain and England this year!)
2011 # OF PYKESONTHEGO TRAVELPOD ENTRIES: 82 (40 last year; 34 in '09, 104  in '08, 116 in '07,  79 in '06)
TOTAL NUMBER OF VISITS TO OUR TRAVELPOD SITE IN THE PAST 6 YEARS: 51,766
 
CONTINUING VALUE OF THIS LIFE ON THE ROAD:  STILL ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS!
