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.

A new decade

Well we have officially entered into a new decade, 2010. I hope everyone made the journey OK. We did. The last decade was good to us. We had good jobs and paid off the house in the first half, then sold the house for a BIG profit and started our fulltime journey in the second half. It’s hard to believe we have been fulltime for ½ decade and still love it. So far our investments have kept up with our spending even through this tough economy. We have always come out with a positive balance in our portfolio at the end of the year. Granted we spent a lot of money this year building our casita but I conceder that as an investment rather than an expense.
Havasu tried a new thing this year for New Years. They closed off most of down town and charged everyone (adults only) $15 to $20 to party in the streets, one drink included. There were 3 bands spread out through the town. As far as I know it was successful. I say, As far as I know, because we did not participate.

Instead we stayed close to home and went to a New Years party here at the resort. It was a lot of fun. We didn’t have to fight crowds, or brave the cold. The music was good, good friends, and good food and drink. Today was a typical New Years day. We did absolutely nothing. After a morning walk I sat on the patio all day and watched TV. Susan did the same after doing some laundry. The rest of our friends played golf in the morning then went to the Clubhouse to watch the game.

Well I hope this coming year will be a good one for everyone.


  1. Dan,

    Hard to believe you have been full timing for a 1/2 century! Do you mean a decade??

  2. You are correct my friend. I need to correct my post.
