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.

Short list

The to do list for the Casita is getting short. I finally got the baseboards painted, installed, and touched up. Did I ever tell you how much I hate painting? I put it off long enough and decided it needed to get done. Today I sealed all the tile grout so about the only thing I got left to do now is hang shades in the patio.
The wind around here just won’t let up. We usually get 3 days of wind then quite a few days of nice weather. Lately we have been getting a bunch of days of wind with maybe 1 day of calm between. The temperature is all over the place too. We can’t rely on the weather reports, seems no one knows what it’s going to be like in Havasu. We will be heading over to Phoenix in a week. The exact day depends on the weather. I really don’t want to drive in the winds we have been having.
The population around here is getting slim with all the “Snowbirds” heading home. Soon will be time for a major age change here. The older head home and the younger show up for their summer fun.
