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.

It rained really good today. The weather called for rain but I thought…Naw, Not here. I was out replacing the coach batteries in the motorhome when I heard the thunder, then the wind started blowing, and then the rain came. The battery compartment is under the slide so I was able to complete the job and stay relatively dry. I had to wait until the rain stopped to put everything away though. I chuckled thinking about all the kids coming into town for the holiday with their boats and tents only to find rain. We were going to hang out on a friends boat in the channel tomorrow and watch the circus of crazies but we decided to hold off. Maybe Monday.
On our way back from Williams last week, I had about ½ tank of fuel. I thought it would be wise to fill the motorhome then instead of when we travel again thinking the fuel prices would be higher later. I paid about $3.65/gal then. I filled the car today at $3.98/gal. And it’s only going to get worse.
