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.

Made it to Williams

We made it to Williams Arizona today. Man! It’s up hill all the way here. We started out in Havasu at about 600ft and are now at 6700ft. We will be visiting The Grand Canyon and the Sedona area while here. The weather was in the 70s when we got here today. They told us to disconnect our water hose overnight because it will drop to the 20s. All the weather reports say 35º so I am going to throw caution to the wind and leave it hooked up. It’s only supposed to get to about 65º tomorrow. A far cry from the 90s in Havasu. We are in a new park right next to the Grand Canyon Railroad. It is part of the Hotel and we have full privileges of the Hotel as well.

  1. Hi Dan and Susan,
    Steve and I stayed in Williams a little over 2 years ago. We stayed at the KOA just ouside of town. We also went to Grand Canyon and Sedona while we were there. Wonderful!!! We took a side trip to Walnut Canyon Monument (I think that is what it is called) if you see the sign for it, I would recommend a trip there. Really something to see, but wear good climbing shoes, many, many steps. Also we stopped by Winslow, AZ (as in the song from the Eagles-Standing on a corner in Winslow,Az) The "corner" is there,unfortunately the building attached to the corner had burnt down. But the mural on the one side wall was saved. Fun to see! Have a great time!
