In our case, unless a person worked for the same employers we did and retired at the same age and year we did our health insurance costs would be meaningless to them.

In our case, we too had employer-provided health care insurance, but I did list the cost of it with the note that it was my previous employer's plan. I guess that I didn't read far enough in your associated notes.

Last year (2015), we came in just shy of $36,000 for the year. However, we increased the budget for 2016 because of where we have chosen to spend the majority of our time - This Summer in The Black Hills of South Dakota, and this coming Winter in Gulfport, Mississippi (with a two week stint at Christmas to Key West, Florida). Due to these geography choices our monthly campground fees increased significantly for this year. Of course, we knew this ahead of time, made the choice anyhow, and budgeted accordingly.

With nearly three years passing since I posted our Budget / Expenses, I thought it might be helpful to update where we stand. Heather and I still full-time. We have upgraded our rig from The Beaver Monterrey to a Tiffin Allegro Bus (Paid Cash from Savings - Numbers not reflected in the attached Budget). We still have the Jeep Liberty as our tow vehicle. I have included our 2016 through 2018 actual expenses as well. Please keep in mind the numbers below reflect our choices with respect to lifestyle (restaurants, diet, alcohol, etc.), location (campground fees) and relocation costs (fuel, propane, etc.). We have visited 31 states in nearly 5 years on the road. We have unlimited internet across 2 mobile phones, a tablet and an ATT Mobley Device. We eat a low carb diet (lots of meat) and enjoy Vodka (me) and Bud Light (with a Hot Damn Chaser [Heather]). We divide most of our time between Ohio & The Black Hills of South Dakota (Summer) and Tucson, Arizona & Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (Winter). We basically make one big loop around the country every year. 

As others have noted, one's expenses can vary greatly depending on where, when and how one chooses to travel - and how one chooses to remain stationary. We relocate less frequently than most full-timers, but on the flip side, our travel miles fall higher than many folks - again, because of our choice to make one giant loop around the country every year. The biggest determination of what this lifestyle costs is YOU. That's the beauty of it all.

Safe Travels to you all.

Had to Google Hot Damm Chaser:  Hot Damn Cinnamon Schnapps  🙂

Sounds good.  Except for the Bud Light.  We prefer "real" beer.  🙂

Meat sounds good as well. That is why we have canine teeth!

Beer is a high carb beverage. :)
