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.

Older Rvers

I have to admire the older people that are not just sitting home feeling sorry for themselves. I see a lot of older folks enjoying the good life of Rving. Some amaze me that they can hardly get out of their motorhome, some with canes, even some with walkers. Today I even saw one with not one but two artificial legs from the knees down, however they are out enjoying life. But the ones I saw today were real scary. I watched as a gentleman and his wife pulled in today and stopped at the entrance to the park. We were all wondering why he chose the entrance to park, blocking the road for everyone else. After a few minutes he drove over to the narrow road that goes behind the lodge and took his passengers mirror off on a post. After realizing he couldn’t fit down the road he attempted to back out and backed into a parked car. After leaving the parked car he drover over to the exit to the park and parked there for a while blocking the exit. Finally he left. Then in came another that, while attempting to back into his site, backed into his neighbor’s awning while his wife stood outside screaming at him to stop. He totally ignored his wife that apparently was supposed to be his spotter. Where do you draw the line?

    I don't draw a line. I ignore my wife all the time!
