Late August we flew home to visit family so early this month involved a flight from home back to our van in Townsville. This month also incurred a large expense with car parking at Townsville airport while we were gone. So, all other things taken into account, we really did well with our spendings this month.
We have found it much easier to find low cost camping in Queensland, and we have not travelled large distances, so our fuel costs are much lower this month.
Our overall weekly average of $856.32 is within budget. Something we did not expect with airfares and airport parking taken into account this month. We are very Happy Campers this month!
