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.

Can’t move on

One good thing about being a Fulltimer is if we don’t like where we are we can move on. The weather has been crappy here on the coast of California. We have woken up to drizzle for the last 2 mornings and everything is a muddy mess. It should get better as far as the drizzle but the weather is still supposed to be overcast, damp and cold. Also other than family we have no reason or desire to visit southern California. It is too crowded with obnoxious people, too expensive, and I have probably mentioned the Hispanic population before. The problem is we can’t move right now. We have to fulfill our commitment to dog sit our daughter’s dog.

This is not something that is difficult since she is a really cool dog and she is happy to be with us.
