Day by Day with Daisy 2008-09 travel blog


This morning “Canaan Bound”, a southern gospel trio who attend my church in Denison, gave me one of their CDs for my birthday. Several of the songs are among my favorites.

Around 2:15 I left Denison after a very enjoyable lunch with Stuart and Regina Prigge (some church friends). I drove to Burleson (south side of Fort Worth) to spend the night at the RV Ranch Resort. It’s a nice place with a lot of amenities. I wanted to be close to McClain’s RV SuperStore and Camping World because I need to go there tomorrow to have both vehicles inspected and have a few little jobs done on my motorhome. The companies occupy the same building, which makes it very convenient.

On the way down here it was cloudy and occasionally misty. I like driving in cloudy weather because it generally is cooler and also because I don’t have to wear sunglasses.

Because of all the recent talk about ways to reduce energy consumption, I decided to calculate my monthly energy costs to see how I stack up with Mr. and Mrs. Average American. Because I’m a full-time RVer, the only expenses I have are RV-related. I was pleasantly surprised by my monthly average energy expenses of $141.16 for the last 36 months. This is less than most people’s electricity bill alone! It includes gasoline for the motorhome and car, propane and electricity when it is a separate charge above the RV site rental.
