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.

Good Spot

Our daughter is in a different infield spot than the previous years. At first we thought it might not be a better spot than the last but were opened minded about it. Turns out it is a great spot. It is right at the exit of Pit Road and in the middle of turns 1 and 2. We get to watch some of the action in the pits and the race off Pit Road.

Seems this part of the track has some tricky turns because there were about 8 or so crashes into the wall right in front of us. This part of the wall is hammered from all the cars crashing into it.

This guy was trying to put his car back together so he can get back out there.

Turns out it was not possible.

Even though last nights race was just a Camping World West Series race, which is mostly western US locals, it was a pretty fun race.

The weather was a mix of sun and clouds with little wind. It stayed cool and was for the most part comfortable. Today is supposed to be warmer and it will only get better from here.
