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.

Internet price or real price

Lately I have had a problem with Internet ad pricing. It seems that when you go to a stores website, the prices you see aren’t necessarily the real world prices. Susan and I spent a day shopping for a table to set a TV on for our patio. After searching many stores we went home to think about it and settled on a nice table available at Kmart. I went online to get the dimensions and found it was on sale for $20 less than we saw it in the store. Off to the store I went to get a good deal. After it rang up at regular price I questioned the Internet price and was told that price is an Internet only price however they ended up giving it to me for the sale price anyway. I wasn’t as lucky with Walmart. I spotted a TV for $100 less than the store price on the Internet but Walmart said they won’t even attempt to compete with their Internet price, needless to say they didn’t sell me a TV today. Radio Shack has it on the Internet for the same price as Walmart’s Internet price but our local Radio Shack doesn’t even carry that model. Another was a refrigerator for sale at Home Depot. Their Internet price is $60 Higher than their store price…Go figure. By the way, I went back and looked at the internet ads and can’t find anything that says these are Internet only prices.
