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.

The heat is on

The temperatures have reached the 100+ mark here. It really isn’t too bad yet though. I guess I have gotten to where I can tolerate it more. When it gets up to the 120s that might be a different story. We can maintain a nice cool temperature inside the motorhome with the air conditioners running. I still spend most of my time outside, however I have spent more time inside than usual these days. They had a Pizza party for the people still here on Saturday. On Sunday the last of the people that we hang around with in our area of the resort have left. There are still a handful of people left but we are spread about all over the resort and most stay inside where it is cool so you don’t see many. If it weren’t for all the Casitas that everyone built here we would have a hell of a view since there are no RV left around us. We plan to stay until after the 4th of July then we will head for the coast to visit the grandkids and cooler weather.
