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.

I was filling a close to empty fuel tank on the motorhome and as I usually do I stood there and watched the dollars adding up. It was close to empty so I figured I would have to feed my credit card in at least twice to get it full. I watched as the dollars went past the $75 mark where it usually shuts off and thought, huh, they must have upped it since it cost so much to fill a tank now-a-days. I thought, it will most likely shut off at $100 and I will have to feed the card in again. Then at $94 it shut off. Can’t be full..it hasn’t even reached $100 yet so I squeezed the trigger again. It immediately shut off again. $94…that’s it? Wow the price has really come down. While entering the fill in my log I noticed just 2 months ago I pumped over $200 in the tank.
