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.

We’re back

We are back in Havasu. The drive was a good one with good weather all the way. We did see a pretty bad looking accident around the Palm Springs area though. Looks as though someone with a large fifth wheel trailer lost control, spun it around and laid it over on its side, truck and all. I hope no one got hurt. Fortunately we were alerted on the CB radio about the accident and were told a way around it. The traffic was backed up for quite a way and we missed it all by taking the CBers suggestion. Probably saved us an hour at least of bumper to bumper, stop and go (mostly stop) traffic.
We got lucky and got the use of a friends lot free of charge. It is only for about 10 days but after we got here and was talking to another neighbor, they said they are pulling out in a week and we can use their lot. So it looks like we are covered until we leave in February for some NASCAR fun.

They finally got the cement poured on our lot. A friend has been kind enough to take lots of pictures while we were gone. I talked to one of the framers and he said they will hopefully be getting the lumber next week and can start framing. I am sure once they know we are here and waiting, things will go a bit faster.
