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.

Nice boat ride

It sure is nice to know some that has connections with a boat shop. Yesterday a friend called and asked if we wanted to go for a boat ride. The weather was perfect and the lake was glass so he hooked onto a boat in the showroom and away we went.

It was evening and no one was on the lake but us. As I said, the lake was glass so he opened it up and reached about 60 mph before backing down.

The boat ran so smooth and quiet you wouldn’t even know we were going that fast. He said next week we will take out a faster boat.

Today the temperature pushed over 105°. Tomorrow is supposed to be the same then it will cool a bit for the weekend.

    What a great blog .and a life style you guys have.
    I am a "summer fulltimer" ,I wish I could do it all year round but as a non resident we get only 6 months visa entry at a time...well we have to live with it and do the best from the situation.
    Many happy travels and hope to meet on the road.
