We just completed our 301st consecutive day, our longest time on the road. Since we headed off to PEI on our first Scamp
trip last summer we have stayed in 92 different campgrounds, driveways, national and state parks, attended 3 FRV rallies, meeting many marvelous people, seeing wonders everywhere..... averaging about 3-4 days a stop.
I met an RVer who asked me about our expenses. I told him that we average about $12 a day for gasoline, averaging 22.5 mpg, spending about $3600 for this trip so far, now in our 301st day on the road.
Fuel prices have doubled for us over recent years and increased about 10-15% in the last 10 months, the reason I'd like to get one of those high mileage diesels and maybe push the tow mileage to 30 mpg.
We should be at the Scamp
factory by the middle of Sept., getting new cushions and a new coupler. Glad to transmit any messages to the factory.
We continue merrily on our way, picking up our pace a little for the run home, averaging about 200 miles a day. Today we had an interesting drive, cutting out a good part of I-15 and I 90 by taking Rts 22 and 33 in ID and Rt 41 in MT. Both were excellent 2 lane roads with little traffic that ran thru farm country paralleling rivers with mountains on either side. Great ride.
We have had the best time, it seems we have been on the road for a really long time. The trip has been so varied it's hard to remember our early months.
