Here's 2012 by the numbers, our SEVENTH Year on the Roads to Adventure!


Our mileage is  lower than in past years, as we sat still and work-camped from January - April in Apache Junction, Arizona; and from May - October in Port Clinton, Ohio.

 But we still managed to cover some ground and had SO many wonderful adventures!!

MOTORHOME MILES DRIVEN  4,260 Miles (11,356  last year; 6,400 in '10; 5,186 in '09;
11,801 in '08, 14,046 in '07; and 15, 097 in '06)
AUTOMOBILE MILES DRIVEN: 9,131 Miles (15,500 last year; 10,112 in '10;  10,906 in '09, 13,356 in '08; 14,665 in '07 and  14,000+ in '06)
GALLONS OF DIESEL FUEL PURCHASED:  526 Gals. @ $3.889/Gal. Average Price (1,374.2@$3.80 last year; 775.65 @ $3.08 in 2010)
AVERAGE MILES PER GALLON:  Once Again, this # is 8.1 miles per gallon, although it just dropped from 8.3 after extended generator use (which uses diesel fuel)  8.1 last year; 8.3 mpg the prior 5 years : (
FUEL COST PER MILE:  $.478 ($.469 last year; $.373/mile in '10;  $.387 in '09 
and $.448 in 2008!)

AVG COST PER NIGHT OF RV "CAMPING":   $12.88  ($10.81 Last Year) (includes all RV Parks,
utilities, camp memberships, "in lieu of" payments, etc. - we also pay for our sites where we work camp), which comes to $392.08/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 $561.82/month - about 1/3 of what our rent + utilities 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 2012: 15 (+ Ontario, Canada)                 
7 Yr Total: 45 States/4 Provinces
2012 # OF PYKESONTHEGO TRAVELPOD ENTRIES:   64 This Year (82 last year; 40 in '10; 34 in '09, 104  in '08, 116 in '07,  79 in '06)
TOTAL NUMBER OF VISITS TO OUR TRAVELPOD BLOGS IN THE PAST 7 YEARS: 54.678
 
CONTINUING VALUE OF THIS LIFE ON THE ROAD:  STILL ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS!
