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.

It’s been a while

It has been a while since I posted last. Not much going on right now. We are waiting for next week when we head for California for the NASCAR race. We were going to do our annual river trip…sounds kind of strange since we practically live on the Colorado River, but last year we headed down to Parker Arizona just about 30 minutes away. We took a drive the other day and found all the reserved sites are taken for the next few weeks. We could take our chances and drive down in hopes to get a non-reserved site, which is most likely possible. The catch is, there is no cell service there and our friend’s daughter is about to have a baby. We decided to put the river trip off until further notice.

Tuesday we plan to head for Fontana California, well actually Ontario is where we will be staying, for the California NASCAR race. I say plan because we are in the middle of a windstorm right now and are expecting another one right behind this one. They should be gone by Tuesday but you know how the weather can be. I really don’t want to drive in 25 to 50 mph side winds. We don’t need to be there until the weekend so I can hold of a day or two if needed.

People are starting to trickle in here at the resort. I hear that some of the northern states are already getting a dusting of snow. That means the Snowbirds will be heading on down soon.


  1. Looks like your still living the great life so all is good... We've been in the woods for 3 weeks with no internet service and I am finally able to get on and visit my friends... Have fun & travel safe!


  2. Wow! 3 weeks without internet. Since I do not watch TV, having no internet would drive me crazy.

    Hey Dan and Susan. You are correct about the light dusting of snow. I look out my windows and the mountains are starting to turn white already. We had a low of 30 last night and it it will only get up to 51 today. Summer left on Monday, we has 80 degrees, and by Wednesday it was 55. Time to get out the long underwear ;(
