|July 1- July 31, 2016 Budget|
The entertainment was for a breakfast in the Sipapu Lodge and a breakfast in Taos. I didn’t count any of my non smoking celebration, it was from “gift” money. The camping expense was way higher than budgeted. I spent a couple of weeks in National Forest Campgrounds. They were lovely and cost about $9.00/night with my Senior Access card. The joys of getting older! I still managed to save $32.10 over the budget, even splurging on camping.
I don’t think I will stay in the National Forest campgrounds again. I found that within a few miles of any of these campgrounds I could find a free spot. Here is a spot that is about ten miles from the Junebug campground. Up about 3/4 mile on a single lane dirt road. Free and next to a beautiful stream and 1/4 mile to a great hiking trail. Next time!
