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.

No Home

Tomorrow we will be without a home. The motorhome goes into the shop to get the refrigerator repaired, Finally! I am hoping we will have it back by the same evening but I am not counting on it. We have made arrangements to stay in the park model we rented for Susan’s parents. Her parents showed up today to visit for the week. Her father said he would sell his house in Southern California and buy a place here in a hart beat except for the value of property these days. It’s just not a good time to sell a house right now if you don’t have to. They are looking forward to spending the week with us.

Our grandson called the other day to tell us he was in the emergency room. He says he was helping his father do some yard work and stepped on a rake. It went right through his foot. He called today to tell us he got 3 stitches and spent 5 hours in the emergency room. The poor little guy is only 7 years old. He sure was brave through the whole thing though.
