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.

Not much happening so far

Not much going on here. I guess that’s what we come here for.

I just sit and watch the Geckos hunt for food

and watch the weather roll through. There is usually more to do around here but all the Snowbirds haven’t shown up yet. I have been doing some much needed cleaning of the motorhome and car. In a couple of weeks we are heading back to California for an RV rally. It will be a week trip and then we will come back here to Havasu. There should be more people here by the time we get back.

I just read that the Rexhall Homecoming Rally (not the one we are going to) has been canceled due to lack of interest. I doubt it is lack of interest because the ones we attended were really fun. It is most likely the economy. Usually these rallies draw around 300 motorhomes from around the country. They have only had 12 signup this year.

Not much going on lately. We are just relaxing and enjoying the warm weather here in Lake Havasu City. I somehow injured my knee so I have been taking it easy, waiting for it to heal. Healing takes longer as we grow older. We are waiting for the new Workampers to arrive here at the resort so the owners that are here have taken on some of the tasks until they arrive. I go out every morning and uncover the pool then cover it back up in the evening. Not too hard of a task.

Still hot

It’s been pretty warm around here. When it does drop below 100 it’s because of a pending thunderstorm, which raises the humidity. So in other words, it’s heat or humidity. We have been really enjoying ourselves though. It is so relaxing here and the thunderstorms make for some nice sunsets. There are still very few people here but they are most likely on their way or getting ready. It’s kind of nice and quiet with no one here.

Time to relax

I thought when we got back the Havasu it was time to relax. I have been busy cleaning everything up. I have not had time to relax yet and there is still more to do. After the cleaning it will be time to start fixing things that need attention. By the time I get it all done it will be time to hit the road again. Hopefully the next time we come back all will be done and I can finally relax.

Back in Havasu again

We just spent 4 great days at a friend’s house in Riverside for a 50th birthday party. We have been there before. You might remember this is the place where we pull right up next to their pool. There were 8 RVs there this weekend. I think they have had as many as 11 in the past and all on concrete on their property. Somehow when we go there we always get the choice spot next to the pool.
We left this morning and are now back in Lake Havasu City Arizona. We will be here for a few weeks, and then head back to California for an RV rally. We plan to get the motorhome detailed and carpets shampooed while here and give everything a good cleaning. It is really due.

We’ve left the track

We pulled out of the California Speedway infield about 10:00a this morning. After about an hour we are now in Temecula at the Pechange Casino RV Resort. We will be doing absolutely nothing here for a few days except getting things cleaned up and relaxing.
We had a great time at the track, visiting old friends and watching the race. I just got a kick out of watching the circus in the infield. It is an experience.
I will be posting my photos soon.
