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.

One Hundred +

We are back into the 100+ temperatures here in Arizona. Looks like the sub 100s are gone for the summer. I get out and do a few things on the motorhome in the morning hours then call it quits until evening. After lunch Landen and I head on over to the pool for an hour or so. It starts to cool down around 6:00p so I can do a few more things before the sun goes down. Good thing is it doesn’t get to dark until around 8:00p so with the time I have in the morning and evening I have plenty of time to get thing done.

I have been wanting to take Landen down to the lake to play but there is a problem with KHV, Koi Herpes Virus. I know it sounds bad but actually it’s harmless to Humans. The problem is it is killing off hundreds of Carp in the lake and they are washing up to shore, hundreds of them, so you can imagine what it smells like. They are doing their best to keep the shores cleaned up but with thousands of Carp in lake it is a monumental task. The good news is they are finding less and less washing up to shore every day. They are hoping to get things pretty much cleaned up for the up coming 4th of July holiday.
