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.

Car's busted

When we got here yesterday, I unhooked the car as usual and Susan jumped in, fired it up and parked it as usual. After getting everything setup Susan jumped in the car to go see the Grandkids, turned the key and…nothing. Everything worked find but the starter didn’t make a sound. I poked around, pulled a few fuses to check them and a after determining they were all good plugged them back in and turned the key. It started right up like a brand new car. Hum, maybe a loose fuse. Susan got in the car this morning to head for the store and the car fired right up. Good I thought must be OK. No such luck. She called me from the store…No start. I got one of the guys here to give me a ride there and Susan a ride back while I stayed with the car. I tried the fuses again, No good. I checked cables, Plugs, Relays, Fuses, Nothing. Finally I got out a screwdriver and rapped on the started. Fired right up. Looks like its time for a new starter. After 5 years of driving and dragging it all over the country, this is the first time we have had a problem. I can’t complain too much.
