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.

My position in today's economy

As I watch the stock market fall lower and lower, I sometimes wonder if I did the right thing by quitting my job, selling the house, investing my money and going fulltime. Then I remember that everything I own is paid off, I don’t have a job that I have to worry about loosing and living in an RV is as cheap as you want to make it. I also remember that my loss in the stock market is only on paper and as hard as it is to NOT pull out I am staying in for the long run. It will come back and I will not suffer any loss from today’s economy. So I sit here next to my motorhome at our resort in the warm Arizona sun feeling pretty good about my decision.

After a blustery day yesterday, today was great. The morning started out cool and calm, and warmed up real nice during the day. It is supposed to improve from here for the rest of the week.
