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.

Unexpected move

We are now in Vista California. This was an unplanned trip and was decided just last night. Susan’s mother is going in for surgery tomorrow and Susan wanted to be with her. Since our house has wheels I said, “Let’s go.” We had a good drive here with perfect weather. The rains stopped and the sun came out. Along the way we saw plenty of evidence of the storm. Lots of highway signs were blown down and we saw a blown over Big Rig that they were trying to upright. We also past through an area that was flooded. Fortunately the water had subsided away from the road when we went through.

There is also plenty of snow in the mountains. Tomorrow is supposed to be even nicer but more rain is coming next week.


  1. Dan we hope the best for Susan's Mom.. Thanks for the rain...

  2. Thanks Lee. Susan’s mom made it thought the surgery fine and is recovering. It will be a long slow process but she should be fine. It was a long day for everyone.

  3. Hi Dan and Susan,
    Steve and I are glad Susan's Mom came thru the surgery and is recovering. You guys take care. That is a very pretty shot of the snow on the mountains.

  4. Thanks Terry. She is doing a lot better than everyone expected. Even the nurses and Doctors are amazed.

  5. Nice mountain photo and great blog, much different from life. Looking forward to reading more.
