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.

Susan has just finished her Christmas baking and the motorhome is filled with cookies and fudge. She has made up plates of goodies for all our friends. Yesterday we delivered some to the Park Aids, Rangers, and other Camp Hosts here at the park. She also made a batch for my homeless friends I make here every year. They sure appreciate that.

Not much happens on the weekdays this time of year. We are less than ¼ full and everyone is well behaved. Today would have been another ho hum day here at the campground. Well not quite. I was on my rounds and noticed a pool company truck parked in one of the sites. I though this was a bit unusual since no one seemed to be around and there was no tent or camping gear. I just figured it was a visitor to another site and let it go for now. After an hour I got a little more suspicious so I walked into the site to look for a campsite tag or visitors pass on the truck. I spotted the campsite tag and noticed a person lying on the front seat of the truck. Still a little unusual I thought but nonetheless he was registered so I went to the entrance station to see if they needed anything. While at the entrance a Sheriff car came speeding into the campground, lights flashing and siren blasting. I followed the Sheriff car through the campground and they headed right for the pool company truck. Both deputies got out, guns drawn and moved to the front of the truck. Not much I could do at this point so I went back to block the entrance to that part of the campground. Soon 5 or 6 more patrol cars showed up along with a fire truck and an ambulance. Seems the guy checked in to the campsite to check out. In other words he attempted suicide with drugs and alcohol. I still am not sure how the Sheriffs knew he was there. The only thing I can figure is he made a 911 call. I guess he’s all right but he is now on our BOL (be on the lookout) list.

Well we are ready for Christmas. Susan has got the shopping done, notice I say Susan, and the tree and decorations are up.
We get quite a few looks from the camper that pass by the motorhome since we have displays on the dash and a small lighted tree on the steering wheel table. All that’s left is the goodies. Susan always bakes up a storm with all kinds of Christmas goodies. Most are given away to friends and family.
It’s been getting pretty cold around here, relatively speaking. I know it is miserably cold in other parts of the country but when I have to go out to do my morning check at 7:00a and it’s 41°, that’s cold to me. It might get up into the high 50s to low 60s for a while during the day but by 2:00 or 3:00 in the afternoon it starts to chill out again. At least we are cozy with our fireplace in the evenings.

Our beach disappeared because of high tide. This poor girl was trying to walk her dog on what used to be a beach.
Note the water line on the cliffs as the tide goes out.
Here is a photo of some of the erosion in the park. These trees have given way to the sea.
And of course storms always mean killer sunsets.

Cummins Introduces 650-HP Diesel Engine
Wednesday, November 28, 2007
Cummins Inc. introduced a new 650-horsepower diesel engine for luxury motorhomes, the ISX 650, at the National RV Show in Louisville, Ky., on Tuesday (Nov. 26).
The ISX 650, with 1950 lb-ft of torque, represents a new level of performance in the premium motorhome market, the company said in a news release.
“The Cummins ISX delivers superior performance through the use of its in-house core technologies, including Cummins’ advanced electronic controls, patented VG Turbo, high-pressure fuel system, combustion technology and exhaust aftertreatment,” the company stated. “The new ISX 650 is fully integrated with the Allison 4000 MH model automatic transmission. The Allison 4000 MH model is rated up to 650 HP and 1950 lb-ft of torque. This rating and transmission integration demonstrates the ongoing collaborative efforts between Cummins and Allison Transmission.”
According to Mark Conover, Cummins’ director-RV Business, “We’ve listened to motorhome customers and understand that horsepower and performance are top of mind. The ISX 650 will provide exceptional acceleration, improved ability to climb steep grades, better downhill speed restraint with superior braking horsepower and all-around first-rate performance.”

I did had a little help from Security however.
He had to poke his nose in everyone’s business, especially if there was food involved.
Our daughter and her husband brought their motorhome to spend a few days with us along with some good friends. We had the greatest time.
And of course there was Thanksgiving with the family and friends. I did my usual turkey on the grill and it came out great. With the engineering background in me I can’t just toss the bird on the grill.
I hooked it up with remote temperature sensors to monitor the inside turkey temp and kettle temp. No guess work here. We are Hi Tech. We also had ham and all the thanksgiving dinner fixings. Oh and don’t forget the pies.
The weather was good and now that everyone has gone it has turned to cloudy and cool.
Friday, November 16, 2007
The campground is full again. We had 110 campers come in today. Funny thing though, I thought most would stay through Thanksgiving day but that is not true. I think I counted only 2 that are staying. According to the reservation system the campground will be full but they will be coming and going all week. I guess not everyone can get a whole week off for Thanksgiving. I am glad the guy right next to me is only staying for 2 nights. One of the first things he did when he pulled in was fire up his generator and it hasn’t been off since. Last year we had a group that took up pretty much the whole area down where we are. They were the type that didn’t think the rules pertained to them at all. I heard they might not be here this year.
I was in the right place at the right time again today. I was checking out a beehive in one of the sites when a surfer came up from the beach bleeding from the face. He told me he got hit by his board and needed help. I got on my campground radio and had the lifeguards there within minutes. Turns out the guy was OK, just a good blow to the nose. While waiting for the lifeguards I took a look at his nose, and a look at his surfboard and said, “If it’s any consolation, your board looks worse than your nose.” His board had a pretty good ding in it.
Susan and I passed our test! We both had our physicals and passed with flying colors. I think it has a lot to do with our lifestyle and the fact that we are a bit health conscious and Susan prepares healthy meals.

Well I got plenty of sunset pictures but here is an after sunset picture.
It’s kind of like a bonus. Last night after the sun had completely gone down and it was dark the moon was shinning over the water. The ocean was so calm that the reflection was killer.
It’s a damn good thing I am not driving the motorhome in California for these 3 months. California gas prices are the highest in the country. I paid $3.50 a gallon to fill the car the other day. The car is bad enough. I wouldn’t want to fill the motorhome right now.
Monday, November 12, 2007
I was out wandering around our end of the campground this afternoon since I am off duty. As I was heading back to the motorhome I spotted a girl in a wetsuit hobbling up from the beach. Huh…Stingray sting I bet. So I went over to see if my hunch was right. A soon as she spotted me she asked for hot water. Knowing that hot water is the best thing for a stingray sting I asked, Stingray and she answered, yes. Fortunately I was close to the motorhome so I told her to stay put and went for a bucket of hot water. I returned with a chair, a bucket of hot water, and our Camp Host radio. I called for the Host on duty who informed the Ranger on duty and soon the Lifeguards were on scene. A Stingray has never stung me but this is the second one I have seen. Although not life threatening, it sure looks painful.
Well this is how the day ended.
Even with clear skies, the sunset was great.
Saturday, November 10, 2007
Many spent the afternoon exploring the tide pools.
Later a surfer takes a brief time out to catch the sunset.

If you ever want to experience how crazy some people can be, try Camp Hosting. The other night I thought it was rather strange that one of the bathrooms was locked every time I passes it. I finally informed the Rangers that we might have a “Bathroom Camper”. Sure enough, one of our local homeless took up residency in the bathroom. We have a “Crazy Lady” that every conversation with her becomes a confrontation. The other night she confronted the wrong person (Ranger) and almost went to jail. She was ejected from the park, but she will be back.
As with most State Park campgrounds along the California coast, a train runs very near the park. During the day it’s not too bad since only the local commuter trains run. These are modern, short and fast so the noise is minimal and it is over with quick. The problem is at night when the slow moving, long freight trains come through. They are pretty noisy. We have had campers check out early because they couldn’t handle the noise. They said they were heading home to get a vacation from their vacation.

From hot, dry, windy, and fires to rain. Well more like drizzle. We had just enough rain today to really mess things up. With all the ash, things are a mess. I went out today and hosed things off just to keep the ash from really sticking to everything from the moisture. Tomorrow is supposed to be back to warm and sunny so it would have baked the wet ash right into everything. By tomorrow I should have everything cleaned up again.
We have only a couple of evacuees left since most are cleared to head home. Things should get back to normal at the park now. Well…if you want to call it normal.
Today for instance, we had a complaint from a gentleman that last night the campers next to him were dousing a football with gasoline, setting it on fire, and kicking it around the campsite. We talked to them this morning and informed them that they will probably get a visit from a Ranger. I took a drive by the site and since they are all minors, they were pouring all their beer out on the ground. It just so happened the Ranger was right behind me and spotted the same thing. They were immediately evicted.
Thursday, October 25, 2007
As I stated things are improving here. I spent the day yesterday cleaning up a bit but not too much. There is still a lot of fall out of ash from the fires left in the air. Soon after cleaning up, everything is covered in a lite coat of ash. I will just have to wait for a few days before I can really clean things up.
Landen, our Grandson, came to spend a few days since school has been canceled for the rest of the week. He got a chance to see the horses we have in camp this morning. The horses have left now since they were cleared to go back to their homes. The horse owners were so appreciative that we were able to accommodate them. It was the least we could do under the circumstances. Their vet even brought them donuts and coffee this morning and checked on the horses.
Wednesday, October 24, 2007
Things are looking better here at the campground. Much of San Diego is still on fire and not contained. There are still evacuations going on but a lot of people have been allowed to go back to their homes. I spent much of the day cleaning the ash off everything but am reluctant to spend too much effort since there is still ash in the air. The wind has turned around and is now blowing the ash and smoke in that has blown out to sea. There has been some evacuees coming into the campground but not as many as I expected.
We even have a number of horses in the park that were evacuated. Although this is not a horse park, we are doing our best to accommodate them. For some reason the reservation system canceled all reservations until the end of the month. This is really causing problems for us as people come in expecting to have reservations.

I guess Jack-o-lanterns get old and crotchety too.
This is a photo of the Pumpkin my Grandson carved just 3 days ago
Now this is what it turned into after the dry hot weather we have had in the last 3 days.
We are not even close to being out of the woods yet but it is looking better.
We got a fairly good night sleep last night. We have not been evacuated as yet. There still is a possibility since the fire threatening us is 0% contained. They have evacuated the area 2 towns south of us and 2 towns north of us. The good side is, the winds have subsides and there is even a weak onshore wind which will blow the fire away from us. This allows the fire aircraft to get in the air to help fight the fires by air. They are predicting the winds and heat to continue thru tomorrow. The air quality is still bad and even though the wind changes direction it will bring the smoke over the ocean back in. Everything is covered in ash and I still wear my particle mask whenever I go outside.
Monday, October 22, 2007
Here is a picture of the smoke filtered sun reflecting on the waves. You can see the smoke over the ocean as well. With all the evacuations in the area, I am surprised the campground has not filled up. They have done a really good job of providing lots of shelters all around San Diego County. Susan is not going to get any sleep tonight.
We have not been evacuated, however directly across the lagoon from us, they are under a voluntary evacuation. They are expecting one of the fires to burn down the canyon to the ocean. I doubt we will be in any danger but if it does jump the lagoon we are in big trouble. This park has a lot of vegetation and it is all dry and ready to burn. If anything, we will be getting a lot more smoke and ash than we are right now, and it is pretty bad now. Anyone that is outside is wearing particle masks and some sort of eye protection. To be honest with you, if we didn’t have a reason to be here, we would be out of here right now.
We are experiencing major fires all over San Diego County today. They are saying these are the worst fires in San Diego’s history. These photos were taken at 10:00a. As you can see the sun is totally blocked out by smoke and ash. There is not a cloud in the sky, it is all smoke and ash. We have had the motorhome closed up and the air conditioner on since yesterday. The wind has died down for now and I don’t know what will happen when it comes back up. It may blow more smoke and ash into the area or it may help blow it out of the area. We have contacted the State Park campgrounds north of here to see if they can take some of our campers that are having trouble with the air quality. This will leave sites available to evacuees in our park. This is supposed to go on for a couple of days.
Sunday, October 21, 2007
He really didn’t want to pull the guts out of the pumpkin but I told him that’s part of the job and it needs to be done. He sure looks forward to coming down to the beach. There is always something fun to do.
Saturday, October 20, 2007
Not much out of the ordinary going on here lately. Now I don’t mean not much going on, I mean not much UNUSUAL. There is always some sort of excitement. Anyway, the weather has been great. We had a couple of days of drizzle, which cleaned the motorhome for me. This week is supposed to be in the 80s to 90s. Can’t beat that. Today is my Saturday off. Saturdays are on a rotation basis with the 3 camp hosts so we get every 3rd off. Since I “work” Friday mornings and Tuesday afternoons, this gives me about 4 days off. The State of California came through and got us another cart so we don’t have to share the 1 we had. Since the other 2 hosts are close to each other and I am the furthest they will share one and let me have the other full time.
Monday, October 15, 2007
With this sign in front of our motorhome, we must be available pretty much 24 hours a day. Fortunately most people respect us as ordinary people and not someone that is there for their every need 24 hours. I had one lady come up one morning and tell me that last night there were some noisy campers at 1:00a. She didn’t want to disturb us so she put up with it. I appreciate that.
Sunday, October 14, 2007
Infant mortality is a term used to describe a failure in the early stage of a products life. As I mentioned a few days ago, we upgraded our phone and aircard. Everything went well and worked right out of the box. Well until today, that is. Our aircard decided to roll over and die. I tried everything I knew to troubleshoot the problem and hopefully get it working again. No Go. So I called Verizon tech support. These guys are good and they aren’t even from India. Well Patrick ran me through some of the things I already did and a few I didn’t. We finally determined the card was bad. Fortunately the Verizon store is close by so I grabbed the card and headed on down the road. After explaining that Patrick and I determined the card was bad, the Verizon person said Patrick should have ordered me a new card and I would have to wait until it came in the mail. No, I replied. Patrick said to head on over to the store and get a new card. “We don’t have replacements”, she replied. I know you have cards, I just bought this one the other day. Finally she led me over to the service counter where she went back and brought me out a new card. She then asked me if I had the package it came in. I said I just brought the card in and after a few seconds of blank stairs I told her to just take the new card out of the box and exchange it with the old card. Then I asked her if she could test it for me and her answer was they don’t have any way to test it. I took one step back and looked up to make sure it said Service then said, never mind I’ll test it myself. After getting back and inserting the card it would not connect, said it wasn’t authorized. Another call to Verizon Tech. Seems the girl at the Verizon store didn’t remove the old card out of the system and add the new card. Again the Verizon Tech guy knew his stuff. Anyway we got the card working and as you can see we are back online again.
Friday, October 12, 2007
Things have been quiet around here. We have had our usual minor incidences but nothing worth noting.
The thing I don’t understand is, even though our section is closed for maintenance and they have placed barricades across the road, we still see vehicles cruise through here occasionally. Either they are blind, can’t read or don’t think the signs and barricades pertain to them. It is amazing how full the campground has been this time of year. But after all, it is Southern California and the weather has been just great. I am sure it will slow down in a few weeks.
Tuesday, October 9, 2007
We are now all alone here at the Campground. They closed off our end for their annual maintenance. The other half of the campground is open but there is no one in site from our spot. Things have been pretty mellow around here lately. For the most part everyone has been behaving.
Susan and I went to the Verizon store and upgraded our Aircard and Phone. The new card is at least twice as fast with downloads and about 5 times faster with uploads. We got Susan a new Razor phone, which she is happy with. It had all the wiz bangs such as mp3 player and camera, which we will probably never use.
Friday, October 5, 2007
Looked like rain this morning but it never came. Finally about 10:00A the sun came out and it was sunny the rest of the day, however it was pretty windy, and a bit chilly.
Perfect weather for Sail Boarding.
Tomorrow is supposed to be better. This place cleared out about noon but soon filled up again when the 100+ weekend campers started to arrive. I sure hope they are all well behaved.
I got one more morning tomorrow and then I am off duty for a couple of days. Our Grandson came down to spend the night with us tonight so tomorrow I will be playing ball, scooter riding, kite flying, playing on the beach, and other kid stuff.
Thursday, October 4, 2007
I bought the coolest thing today. Susan does not like my digital camera because I take lots of pictures and download them into the computer. She doesn’t know how to view them in the computer yet so she never gets to see them.
Well I bought a Digital Photo Frame. This is a display screen that is framed just like a photo and it will hold about 150 pictures that can be displayed in a slideshow fashion. I can rotate the pictures as I take them so Susan can view them whenever she likes. It just sits on top of the TV cabinet like a framed picture.

We will be packing up tomorrow and getting ready to head out ourselves. We will be on the road Friday morning heading for our Camp Host gig in Southern California. I sure wish we didn’t agree to do 3 months this year. We are going to let them know we are only doing the 2 months next year or none at all. We want to possibly do another “US Tour” next year so 2 months Camp Hosting will give us a little more time.
Tuesday, September 25, 2007
We have just been enjoying the nice desert weather. The last couple of days it has been in the 80s. We did have a day and night of rain but the temperature was still in the high 70s to 80s. The rain washed everything down real nice. We are getting ready to head on out of here this weekend. We have our Camp Host jobs to do in Southern California for October through December. We are not happy about leaving but we are anxious to see our Grandkids.
Friday, September 21, 2007
We spent half the day yesterday working on a neighbors boat. We had about 5 guys on it at one point, what else do we have to do. Turns out the hot Havasu summer destroyed the rubber impeller in his water pump so we had to partially dismantle the boat to get to the pump. They never make these things easy. But like I said, what else do we have to do.
Monday, September 17, 2007
Two of our friends came rolling in with their motorhomes on the same day. It is slowly starting to get populated around here again. It won’t be long before the “Snowbirds” show up and the park will be full.
Friday, September 14, 2007
I am only working half days these days. Work you say? I mean working on the motorhome and whittling down my “To Do” list. The reason for half days? By noon it is over 100 degrees so I call it quits about then. Actually I start working on my inside “To Do” list. It is supposed to start cooling down in the next couple of days. By Monday it is supposed to be 98 degrees and by Thursday 94. It probably won’t last though but this is the time of year is starts to cool down out hear.
Tonight was movie night at the clubhouse. We saw the movie RV. This is the third time we have seen this movie. Every time I see it I get a laugh. If you haven’t seen it I recommend it.
Thursday, September 13, 2007
We arrived in Havasu about noon today and it was about 100 degrees. I parked, set up the motorhome and thought, this is not too bad. The humidity is low so I hardly broke a sweat, well… Not like in Fontana at least. Then it started to get hot. It’s about 111 right now (3:00p) and hopefully that all the hotter it will get. It won’t start to drop off for another 2 hours or so.
It looks like everything survived the summer on our lot OK. I guess I got the irrigation set right because everything is still alive and about twice the size as when we left. The weeds survived pretty well too. They look bad but they are the type that have one root and cover several feet so cleaning them up wasn’t bad. Everything needs a good washing down though, after all, it is the desert and there has been a lot of construction going on in phase 3. I will be spending the next couple of days cleaning the ocean off the motorhome and car, and cleaning the desert off everything else.
One good thing is, not too many motorhomes are here right now so our view is killer. I suspect they will start rolling in in the next couple of weeks.
Wednesday, September 12, 2007
We made the move today. Tonight we will spend the night in Indio then on to Havasu in the morning. We usually stay at the Elks Lodge here in Indio however there is a Passport America park that during off season, their rate is the same as the Lodge. Passport America is a half price club where parks will charge members half price usually to bring them in during off season.
It is hot here, 111 degrees today but I guess it’s true what they say about dry heat because it is much more comfortable than Fontana was at 111 with much more humidity. I guess 106 in Havasu won’t be too bad since monsoon season is over so there should be no humidity. I can’t wait to wash everything down to get the ocean off. To add to that I am getting a good collection of bugs on the front of the motorhome and we haven’t even gone through the Colorado River farm country yet. I am not going to bother to clean it up until we get into Havasu.
Also, since I finally got in a location where I can get a fast Internet connection, I uploaded our NASCAR photos to our photo site. See the photo links in the left hand column.
Tuesday, September 11, 2007
We got a little excitement today. There was a pretty good size fire in the hills across the highway from the campground.
Rumor has it that a car fire up on the highway started it. They called in a couple of helicopters and a large fire crew to work on it. It was interesting to watch the strategy used to fight it.
Seems the helicopters would drop in front of the fire crews on both sides of the fire, and then the crews with chain saws and fire hoses would mop up after. I guess they know what they are doing because after about 4 hours now they are getting it out.
We were pretty wishy washy about pulling out of here tomorrow. It was 106 in Havasu today and doesn’t look like it is going to let up soon. We would stay but it is cooling down quite a bit here at the beach. Today was in the low 70s and it is supposed to only get up to 68 in a few days. Also everything is coated with a nice film of yuck from the ocean salt air. I need to get everything into dryer air and give it all a good bath. We are going to be on the beach again in a couple of weeks anyway when we head to San Diego for our Camp Host positions.
Monday, September 10, 2007
Well, we really don’t have to. In reality we should stay longer since it is still over 100 degrees in Havasu. We were going to leave last Sunday but it’s been so perfect here we decided to stay longer. Why are we leaving Wednesday? NASCAR. We will make our usual stop in Indio Wednesday night and get into Havasu Thursday. Susan will shop and do laundry on Friday and Saturday and Sunday will be free for NASCAR.
At $45 a night, we have just about reached our campground budgets limit for the month. Being the rest of the month in Havasu is free it will average out.
Saturday, September 8, 2007
This put us pretty close to the guy next door that backs in. Our last neighbors, who pulled out this morning, were real cool. We hardly new they were here. The guy that pulled in today seems OK but he has a couple of kids so he will probably not stay long as the kids have to go back to school.
Susan and I took a walk down the beach today. It has been a bit cooler and breezier today but still nice. I was going to pull out tomorrow and head for Havasu but we are enjoying the beach so much that we will stay for a while.
Friday, September 7, 2007
Good thing I watch where I step or I could have stepped on this guy. This is a pretty good size jellyfish.
Being Friday all sites are full and I suspect it is the same case at the other campgrounds in the area. Everyone is trying to get away from the heat.
We have gotten used to the sound of the waves crashing all night and can get a good nights sleep, however this morning bright and early, a surfer came into the park and apparently doesn’t realize there are other people in this world and had his music blaring all the time he was getting prepared to go surfing. Then shortly after, the trash truck showed up to empty the dumpster behind the motorhome. Oh yeah, and the morning freight train. I guess it could be worse. It could be an alarm clock.
Thursday, September 6, 2007
As I mentioned we are REAL close to the ocean. Last night we sat in the front seats and watched as the spray from the waves crashing against the rocks were reaching the motorhome. I would imagine during high surf, stormy seas, this place gets flooded out a bit. Yesterday was a bit cool and windy, today was a little foggy at times but much warmer. Last evening just before sunset Susan spotted a weasel popping in and out of the rocks in front of the motorhome. I didn’t even know there were weasels around here. We watched for a while as he entertained us.
Today we took a drive over to the Ventura Harbor and visited the Channel Islands National Park. We can see islands from out the front of the motorhome but I wasn’t sure what islands they were. After that we cruised through the Harbor Village Shops.
It sure is nice to listen to the waves crashing at night. We get an occasional freight train going by on the nearby tracks but for the most part all we hear is the sound of the waves. I really do like being on the ocean. The only draw back is, yesterday I washed the car, today…you wouldn’t know it. The salt air leaves a dull film on everything. If you have anything chrome or exposed metal, it is history in no time.
Wednesday, September 5, 2007
Parked only 50 feet from, and facing the ocean is great except for around 5:00p when the glare from the setting sun blasts into our window. I know, life should be so tough.
But after that the sunsets are great.
We will probably hang out hear for a few more days then head on out to Lake Havasu. It looks like it is cooling down to below 105 in the next couple of days so it should be nice and cool out there for us. We are looking forward to seeing our friends in Havasu.
