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.

Blooming desert

I like to call this my Friar Tuck Cactus. The cacti are blooming all around here. This one is in our little cactus garden at the front of our lot here in Lake Havasu. My oleander and bottlebrush are in full bloom also. Looks pretty cool. The weather has been just perfect the last couple of days. It is in the mid 80’s with plenty of sunshine and little wind. The wind is supposed to come up tomorrow though. This evening Susan and I went out for Taco Tuesday at Mad Dogs Sports Bar. They make some good tacos and they are only a buck. After dinner we took a drive out on the Island to watch an awesome sunset, then came back and had ice cream on our patio while staring at the stars.

Still no fridge. I called the shop today and they say they will order the part tomorrow. It is coming out of California so hopefully it will not take long to arrive and we can get this thing started. I am starting to call this place Jamaica-su. Their slogan is (with a Jamaican accent), “No worries man…We’ll get to it.” Things don’t happen too quickly in Havasu.
