We took the long 12 mile trip over to the track this morning. We are staying in one of the parking lots outside the track for the race where we will be on generator power for the weekend. Our daughter has an infield site and we are going to be spending the days with them. We were suppose to head to the track yesterday but Christina couldn’t make it here until today. We were supposed to have dinner inside the track with them tonight but they got a late start and didn’t make it in time for dinner. No problem, we will have dinner at our motorhome and head on into the track tomorrow morning.
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.

Mountain Pass had lots of snow.
It’s kind of neat seeing cactus with snow on it. But we arrived safe and sound in Las Vegas about 1:00p where we will stay until after the NASCAR race this weekend. I will post some NASCAR pictures of the California race soon.

This year all we could find is the Jack Roush Racing haulers. Landen still got a kick out of them though.

The poll I posted a few days ago about background music has confirmed my suspicions. No one like the background music. It’s kind of ironic that I added the music since I keep my own speakers turned off because I hate background music myself. I have removed the music so you can turn your speakers back on. Thanks for the votes.

I looked out the window today to check out the rain and saw this guy looking back in at me.
It’s as if he was saying, “Can I come in?” Of course I didn’t let him in. The weather was up and down today. The sun would come out and I would head outside. Then the sun would duck behind a rain cloud and it would get cold so I would head back in. Then the rain would fall. Then the whole process would start over again. Tomorrow is supposed to be pretty much the same. I sure hope this weather gets over with this rain by next week. We are heading up to Ontario California on Tuesday to get ready for the NASCAR race in Fontana.

and the Hydrocar
Some people just have too much time on their hands and too much money to burn. It makes good viewing for us that don’t though.

I haven’t heard anything back from Webshots about the possible virus so it looks like I won’t be using their site to post our photos anymore. As soon as I get more photos to post (most likely NASCAR) I will be looking for another site to host them for you all to view.
