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.

A wild week

What a wild week. It all started out with the NASCAR race in Phoenix. We traveled 3 hours over to Phoenix for NASCAR weekend PHOTOS HERE. We had a great time and a great site for viewing all the action.

The day after we got back Susan’s parents came into town. They stayed for a week and enjoyed Havasu enough to look at a couple of houses. Her father said he plans to list his house for sale when he gets back home.

On Thursday some good friends from Tennessee came by for a few days to visit. They also liked Havasu enough to pick up a brochure and price list of lots here in the resort. They are originally from California and are heading back to visit friends and family. While here he got the trailer a little to close to the truck while backing and blew out the back window. Good thing I know a good glass guy in town. He had it fixed the next day for a very reasonable price.

On Friday everyone left so I took a ride down to the channel where they were getting ready for the big off shore boat race on the weekend.

Saturday Susan and I took a 1 hour drive over to Laughlin Nevada to check out the Laughlin River Bike Run PHOTOS HERE. This is somewhat of a mini Sturgis Bike Run. Lots of motorcycles, mostly Harley Davidson’s, Bikers, and vendors selling every kind of bike accessory you can imagine.

Today I headed back down to the channel to see some of the boat races PHOTOS HERE. Lots of big boats and big trucks to tow them.

  1. Well Dan the window is still in the truck. ha ha.. We can't thank you and Susan enough for showing us around you HOME. Yes we are VERY interested. Time will tell.
    Love the photo of the No7 girl but who is that standing next to her with that HUGE smile? I bet Susan didn't see that. Oh wait Susan must have taken the picture. (Insert Grin here)

    Wish we could have stayed for the boat display. I bet it was cool to see in person.
