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.

We are in an actual campground for a few days. This campground is real nice. It is clean and our site is very roomy.
We are right across the street from the beach and as I sit under my awning I am looking directly at the famous Morro Rock.
The weather was fantastic today. It was in the high 70s with a slight breeze and the skies were clear. I hope it stays this way all week.

This guy was on his own with his big foam cowboy hat, tie died shirt, and boom box dancing in the streets. He paused long enough for me to snap a photo. It would have been better if the girl hadn’t step between us.
One "must see" in San Luis Obispo is Bubble Gum Alley.
This alley is right in the middle of downtown and the walls are covered in gum. Apparently it is a big hit judging by the crowd in there. I’m wonder how long it took to get to this point.
We ate at Mo’s BBQ tonight. Mo decided he wanted to open the best BBQ place in town so he and a friend set out on a 3500 mile journey to scout out the best BBQ joints and learn from the experts. His walls are covered with best of awards he has earned along with photos of the BBQ joints he visited. While on this journey they picked up an antique chair from each stop for his restaurant. Every chair in the place is different. Pretty good eats but I still like Susan’s.
And all this entertainment for only a $.75 parking fee. What a cool night!

There is plenty to do here in San Luis Obispo also. Tomorrow we are going into town for their street fair.

We took a walk out on the Pismo Pier today. Nice views. As we were leaving the pier, a lady came walking up and just about every pigeons on the pier flocked to here.
Apparently everyday she comes to the pier to feed the pigeons. The old guy that was with here said she calls then her chickens and feeds them everyday.
Tomorrow we will be moving again. There is a group coming in that will occupy all the sites here. This means tomorrow will be a busy morning because everyone here will be leaving and there is only one dump station.

in pictures only. I let them lye as they were.
The weather is surprisingly nice for being near the central coast of California. It is usually cooler and foggy around here.
When I looked at the flag to the left to see the forecast it said, “Smoke”. Never seen that one before. There are some fires going on in Southern California that are affecting the air. We woke this morning to the sun shinning through smoky skies.

We get free movie channels this weekend on our Direct TV Satellite. This makes Susan happy. Between NASCAR and movies she will be happy all weekend. I, on the other hand, am happy as long as I have my Internet.
Today’s weather was nice. The evenings and mornings are getting to be fireplace weather though. We ran the fireplace for the last couple of mornings to take the chill off. I like cool nights.

Tomorrow we will be heading up the road again. We actually wanted to stay longer but don’t want to pay the weekend rates. I asked if they would convert us to their weekly rate if we stayed and they said no. So instead of making a few more bucks on us they get nothing. What kind of business is that?

While here we may visit the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. It’s just 20 minutes down the road from here.
