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 were on the road during the race but with modern technology and our Verizon Aircard Susan was able to follow every lap on the NASCAR website.
I posted a few photos of our weekend. Click on the Cal NASCAR 2008 thumbnail in the left column.

This time they got out the concrete saws and cut slots in the track to try to drain off the water. They finally got the race started again and it started to rain again. We gave up and left. Last I checked they are still trying to dry off the track and start the race again. Good news…Jimmie is in the lead.
OH and to top it all off. Our daughter thought they could drop us off at our car on the way out but once we got out of the infield we found that all roads in were blocked and the only way we could go was out. So we had them drop us off at our motorhome at the Elks Lodge. The car is still at the track. We hope we can get in tomorrow with the motorhome to pick up the car on our way to Las Vegas.

We are now at the Santa Barbara Elks lodge on our way to Fontana for the NASCAR race. Tomorrow we will be moving on down to settle in for the weekend’s race. Susan is so excited.

We left Temecula yesterday morning and spent the night at the Simi Valley Elks Lodge. We were going to wait until 12:00p to leave since it was only a 2 hour drive to the next stop and they don’t let you pull into your site until 2:00p. We decided to head on out at 9:00a because I needed to fuel up and Susan needed to do some laundry. They do allow you to park in overflow before 2:00p so we sat in overflow while Susan did laundry here at the campground. We are all settled in at our site now.
I really screwed up. I almost never make reservations. Why? Well take today for an example. I called last night and made reservations for tonight and tomorrow night. After making the reservations I started thinking…the 2 nights will cost me $80. I could have stayed at the Lompoc Elks Lodge 2 nights for $30. Susan needs to go to the DMV to get her drivers license renewed. The DMV is 1 block away from the Lompoc Elks Lodge, it is 17 miles from where we are now. If I canceled our reservations here it would cost me $20. I could have canceled and still been $30 ahead. I really screwed up!

You can see some photos of the drag races I shot by clicking on the photo link in the left column. We had pass to the NAPA hospitality tent, which was right next to the NAPA car pit. What a blast! Later that night we went to dinner at the casino then to the Improv for some comedy. We sat and relaxed for today then our friends had to head home. As I was writing this post we were treated to a really cool fireworks show over the casino. I don’t know what it was all about but it was a good show. We will be staying one more night before we head on up north to an RV Rally for next weekend.

I added something new to our website today. I sat down and compiled a list of campgrounds by state, city, and campground name. You can view the list by clicking on the link “Campgrounds Visited” in the left column. Email us if you would like any more info on any of the campgrounds.
