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.

Blustery day

It started out last night with lots of wind. But that’s not unusual for Havasu. We do get a lot of wind. This morning when we woke it was looking like rain but the wind had subsided a bit. Finally early morning it started to rain. As the day progressed the rain got worse. Susan was not too happy since yesterday she decorated our borrowed golf cart

for the Golf Cart Christmas Parade here at the resort. We parked it under the neighbor’s patio but the wind and rain still took its toll on it. The parade is Wednesday so she has time to freshen it up a bit.
Since today was not a good day to hang outside Susan spent the day baking banana bread for all our friends. I spent the day nursing the convection oven since it’s fan motor is on the way out. I had the oven partially disassembled and had to keep nudging the fan to keep it running. I have oiled the motor a number of times in the past but this time it didn’t help much. I need to replace the fan motor but can’t see an easy way to get it out. I could just replace the oven but it’s a matter of $50 for a fan motor or $500 for an oven. I figure since I have to remove the oven to replace it I will probably find a way to replace the fan once its removed.
