Our New House
It was brought to my attention that we haven’t updated our Blog since 2013. Since we have become stagnant and haven’t really traveled for a while I didn’t have much of interest to post. Not that our life isn’t interesting, there just isn’t much RV Travel going on.
Well recently we have turned another page in our lives. We decided since we like our lifestyle so much that buying a house wasn’t in our plans. However we have pretty much outgrown the RV so…
We bought a Park Model home in the same resort where we have lived for the last 11 years in the motor home. If you are not familiar with a Park Model, it is a small 400 square foot manufactured home. Ours however is a bit more than a simple park model. First off ours is set in the ground so it is ground level, then a 200 square foot addition was added making it 600 square foot overall and the whole thing is stuccoed and the roof is tiled. There is also a 117 square foot building on the property, which serves as a laundry room and a shop. This building is attached to the house by a covered patio with outdoor kitchen. Along with the real residential appliances they topped it off with an air conditioner that can turn the house into a meat locker in the 120-degree Arizona summers. You can see more photos by clicking on the link in the left column.
I have added a link to the photos of our house HERE.
So, although we are keeping the motor home, it looks like we are not Fulltimers anymore.
Best wishes to all our readers and I hope your travels are as enjoyable as ours.
I will leave the Blog up because I know others enjoy reading about our travels.

It is very sad to see the ‘65 go since I have owned it for 27 years and put a lot of time and pride into it. But it just doesn’t fit into our new lifestyle. I know I will miss it but I will also enjoy the freedom of our new life.

Well when we got back, we had an offer on the house. I am rather disappointed with my agent. She must have forgot how much she suggested and listed the house for because the offer was pretty low. I can’t believe she even came to us with an offer like that. Well it’s still early in the game and we have plenty of time.

As soon as we accept an offer we are going to jump into the motorhome and head for the hills, literally. We plan to spend a week in a nice little mountain community near here called Julian. We love it there and it will be a welcome getaway.

Although I highly recommend Temecula Valley RV in Temecula,CA, I am rather disappointed in them this time. I told them that I had already talked to Workhorse about this and was informed that there is a known problem with an exhaust manifold gasket leaking and blowing hot exhaust gasses on the wires. But they only replaced the wires and did nothing with the manifold. I mentioned that spark plug wires just don’t go bad in under 3000 miles and asked them what the root cause was. They said it could have just been a freak thing. I said, “or a Leakey exhaust gasket”. I told them I will be bringing it back after our next trip and we will call Workhorse and get the go-a-head to do the job right.
But I have it and it is running like new again. Just hope it will last until I get it back to them.

I've been reading everyone's stories about their camping adventures this past Memorial Day weekend. I spent my weekend flying combat missions over Iraq and thoroughly missing my wife, sons, and camping.
I'm thankful that we are able to get internet access in this hell hole. I log on once in a while to read about anything related to RV'ing. Your stories have made me a bit jealous, but I appreciate those who've taken the time to share their experiences. If I can't be out there camping with my family it's still nice reading about others who are.
I'm halfway through my 6th deployment over here since 9/11. I'll be home for the last half of my sons' summer vacation. We'll catch up on the camping they've been missing these last few months. Please continue to share your camping stories. Some of us over here who are avid campers really enjoy your shared experiences.
