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.

Our friend won a contest to play in a Guitar Hero band with Jeff Gordon, driver of the #24 car. That’s Rodney at the microphone. We even saw him on TV today.
After the Guitar Hero band, Jeff Gordon gave him a signed Guitar Hero Guitar. It is in the mid 90s today and lots of humidity. We are hanging out inside the motorhome with the airs going. Not much going on on the track today except practice and qualifying.
We get a good view out the front window so there is not much need to go outside right now.

Boy am I getting antsy. It’s only 3 more weeks before we head out of here but I am READY NOW. As you can tell I haven’t been writing about much lately. That’s because there has been nothing to write about. Susan has been busy however, running back and forth between her Mother’s house and here and tending to our Grandson. He has spent most of his summer with us. It’s going to be tough for him and us when we have to leave. The good thing is he will be back in school before we leave so he will have something to take his mind off of us being gone. We were hoping school didn’t start until after the NASCAR race in Fontana so we could take him with us. He would have had a ball.
The Elks Lodge RV Park has been the busiest I have ever seen it. I think more Elks are taking advantage of the Elks Lodge lower cost for RV Parking and meals to offset the fuel cost of traveling. So far this year we haven’t been displaced to the overflow to make room for a large group as we did last year.
