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.

Race Day

Susan is so nervous about Jimmy Johnson’s chance at the championship that she can’t watch the races. For the last couple weeks I have been watching the race at my neighbors. Today must have been golf day for them because at the start of the race they were not home. Since it was a dismal blustery day I decided to head over to the clubhouse and kick back in their theater style recliners and watch the race on the big screen TV. I had the whole place to myself. Great way to watch the race.

So why didn’t we just pack up the motorhome and head on over to Phoenix this weekend for the race. After all it’s only about 3 hours away. Well that is a different story. There are things we as owners have requested here in the RV Resort that aren’t in the budget so we are taking it upon our selves to raise the money. So this weekend Susan and our neighbor Sally organized a Block Party in the Resort. One of the streets was blocked off and everyone was asked to bring a dish (main, salad, or desert) and a dollar donation and join in. Susan and Sally got our resident former Las Vegas Entertainer to provide the entertainment. Close to 100 people showed up for the party and the 50/50 drawing raised over $400. Susan got real lucky because the 3 days prior to the party were cold and very windy. Yesterday the skies were clear with a gentle warm breeze. Today the winds and cold returned. Everyone had a great time and the party was a success.
