The waves are even coming in sideways due to the extreme wind. I think the wind is rubbing on the nerves of some of the campers here because we have had a rash of really strangest complaints. I am glad we don’t have to drive the motorhome in this wind. Today is the first time since we have been here that I haven’t seen someone on the water. There are usually surfers and when the surf is blown out the kite surfers come out. Today there is NO ONE. In spite of the rain and wind, the campground is full. People have come up with some pretty ingenious ways to keep their tents in place.
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.

I saw the coolest thing the other day. I saw a camper actually raking up his site before leaving. And another was sweeping his before leaving. The sites looked better after they left than they did before they came. Now if I could just get maintenance to do the same…
There is always something interesting to see around here.
These guys were just taking a leisurely cruise over the beach this afternoon. There were about 4 of them.

The Kite Surfers are certainty taking advantage of the situation though.

Some have tuned into big mud puddles. Good thing we are slow this time of the year.
The storms have brought big surf with them. There must have been over 200 surfers out Saturday morning. The surf was big and well formed. It has still been big since then but not as well formed. Fortunately no one has got hurt this year. Last year we had a death when the surf got big.
We finally got a chance to talk to the Camp Host Coordinator. We confirmed our assignment for next year. We signed up for 3 months next year, Oct-Dec. I hope this was not a mistake. Since I have a job to do, I haven’t been plagued with the travel bug as much as I do when we sit in one place for a while.

The weather was absolutely fabulous this weekend. The winds shifted to off shore winds which mean they were preheated by the land rather than cooled by the ocean. The temps were in the high 70s.
Well, all is quiet now and should remain this way through out the week.
