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.

No time change for us

Since the country changed to Daylight Saving time it has messed us up a bit. Arizona and Hawaii are the only states that do not change. Our Satellite programming is based on California time and since we are in Arizona all our favorite programs are now an hour late. Also I have to wait an hour later to check the closing of the stock market to see how far my stocks have gone down... We have to be aware of the time difference when we call our friends and family in California. Personally I don’t think there should be a time change. In a couple of weeks we will be heading for California to spend the holidays. We will have to get used to the time change then. At least then we will be in sync with the rest of the country for a while.

Reminds me of the time I showed up for a motorhome factory tour and was told I was an hour early. Seem during the short 10 minute drive, I crossed into a different time zone.
