This month we had a lot of hardware and maintenance expenses, including a new BBQ plate, and some car parts & accessories in preparation for Cape York in June.

We spent time with family early in May, but all expenses are still included. We travelled over 3000km this month. Fuel cost was up, and unfortunately, also fuel economy due to highway speeds. Thankfully Free Camping has counteracted the cost.

Overall, no surprises in May.
