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.

That had to hurt

This morning I was on my way up to the office, I got about 2 RVs away when I heard a bang and glass hitting the ground. I knew it had to come from my place because no one else was around at the time. I hurried back and noticed glass on the ground. At first I couldn’t figure out where it came from until I looked up and saw this.

The bathroom window was busted out of the casita. The best I can figure is a bird hit it. Although I did not find a damaged bird lying around, which is what I would expect after seeing the window. Anyway, it was dual pane, now it’s single pain since I just removed the broken outside pane and called it done.

Tonight was the golf cart parade. They judged the carts in 4 different categories.

Yep, Susan won the owners award. I say Susan because she did all the decorating, with some help from our neighbors. I just did the driving. We had about 15 carts in all. We weaved our way through the resort tossing candy from the carts to the viewers.
