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.

You got to be kidding

It got down to a cool 90° last night, and a high today of 114°. Now that is in the shade mind you. The motorhome’s outside temperature sensor is tucked behind the front cap, out of the sun. We have had enough. Tomorrow we are getting ready and come Tuesday morning we are out of here. They are saying this may be a record breaking summer for Lake Havasu City. Lake Havasu City already has the honor of having the highest temperature ever for a populated area of 128°. We are not hanging around for the new record. Here it is 9:00p and it is still 103° outside. We are able to keep the inside of the motorhome comfortable but what good is it to sit here inside the motorhome all summer. Susan is anxious to see the Grandkids and her parents anyway.

    It's only been a couple degrees cooler here in Valley Center this week. 110 in the day/85 night. BUT IT'S A DRY HEAT!

    Avril and I are taking off for Yellowstone via Las Vegas this Saturday. Hopefully it will be a little cooler at that altitude...

  2. Read my July posts from last year. We tried to do the Yellowstone thing via Las Vegas. We got as far as Zion and turned back. Just to hot and miserable. This is not a good time of year to do that trip.

    The difference with us is we're driving the Camry and staying in hotels. Yeah, I read your blog when you were there. In fact, it was your experience in Zion that made us skip that section. The plan is to go straight from Vegas to Yellowstone with an overnight stay in the Salt Lake area. The weather forecast for Yellowstone? Low 70's daytime/high 40's at night.
