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.

Benson / Tombstone

Today we took the drive down to Benson. Benson is about 40 miles south of Tucson and the home of the Kartchner Caverns. We have been there about 4 years ago and liked it so much we just wanted to show our friends.

Since these caverns are living caverns, that’s to say they are still wet, dripping and developing, the scientists use it for research so they are constantly discovering new things about it. We learned things that were unknown 4 years ago when we were there last.

From the Caverns in Benson we traveled another 30 miles down to Tombstone.

You may have heard of Tombstone from some of the western movies. This is where legendary men like Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, Bat Masterson, and Johnny Ringo walked the streets back in he 1800s.

Much of the town has been rebuilt but a lot of it is original right down to the buildings paint and boardwalks.
Not sure what is in store for tomorrow since rain is in the forcast.
