grouping issue
You could try this, its a bit noddy and hard coded but if you are sure
of your data it should be ok.

First, select every third <month>

<xsl:template match="tripdates">
  <xsl:apply-templates select="month[position() mod 3 = 1]"/>

Output a row of that <month> and the following two <month>s

<xsl:template match="month">
  <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="table"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="following-sibling::month[1]"
  <xsl:apply-templates select="following-sibling::month[2]"

Output the <td>'s for each <month>
<xsl:template match="month" mode="table">
  <td><xsl:value-of select="."/></td>

It wouldnt be very hard to use a variable instead of hard coded value's
- you would just need to modify the unmoded month template, probably
with a call to a named template that would recursively apply-templates
to the following-siblings.  If you get stuck I can show you that.
