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.

Gas price

As I drove past the Chevron station down the street this morning I noted the price. Since I was going to run a few errands today and one was to fill the tank, I thought I would keep an eye out for the best price. Yesterday the price was $1.95, down from $2.05 the day before. This morning it was down further to $1.93. After running around all morning I was done with all my errands and on my way back to the motorhome. One more station to check since I was in the neighborhood and knew this station was usually lower than most in town. $1.79! Wow I thought. How can they be that much lower than the rest? Of course I filled up and even considered uprooting the motorhome and filling it up also at $1.79. On the way back to the motorhome I passed the first station where I saw $1.93 in the morning. $1.79! Amazing!

    Costco = $1.58
    And if you have an Amrican Express card from Costco, they'll rebate you 3% on all the gas you buy there! I've been going there since April and have around $250 coming back at years end...

  3. The word is that gas will be below $1 soon.
