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.

I got so frustrated today. We woke to another beautiful day. Absolutely NO wind. The weather reports said by 11:00a the winds will start and be 30+ sustained and 50 to 60 gusts. Well…11:00a came and went with no wind. Hell we could have been in Barstow by now. I finally got on line and checked the current weather in Barstow. 35mph sustained and 50mph gusts. That made me feel a little better. It wasn’t until about 2:00p that the winds got to Havasu. We are now (at 7:00p) experiencing some pretty good winds. The question now, will they still be here in the morning when we want to leave? The weather report says 12mph but it also said high winds at 11:00 this morning. I know how wrong “The Weather” can be.
