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.

Moved on to Tucson

Yesterday we left Quartzsite and arrived in Tucson shortly after noon.

We are now at the Beaudry RV Park. We got settled in and went over to the Beaudry RV dealer to check out some of the motorhomes. Being that they are in chapter 11 they are willing to take just about any offer to move inventory. Some of their last year models are going for close to ½ price. To bad we aren’t in the market for a new motorhome.
Today we headed over to the Pima Air & Space Museum. The Museum was quite impressive. They have Docents that were pilots that actual flew some of the aircraft during the wars so they had some interesting bits of fact.

There have President Kennedy’s Air Force One, an SR-71, several B-52 bombers, and many others. From there we caught a tour bus over to the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

This is where they store thousands of military aircraft. Some are there for future use, some are used for parts, and others are being disassembled for scrap. One of the interesting things is that this is where they are cutting up B-52s in agreement with the arms treaty. They have a giant guillotine that chops them up, and then they paint a big number on top and the Russian satellite flies over to take inventory. Then they do the same with their planes and our satellites take inventory of theirs.
We have 3 more days here and plan to do more touring of the area.
