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.

Humming bird rescue

Today I was sitting outside the motorhome and I saw something out the corner of my eye. It was a humming bird struggling to fly.

I scooped him up and now he was my responsibility. I can’t just watch him suffer. Well I was in luck. I caught the curiosity of my neighbor and soon there were more neighbor around. Apparently one has some experience with this situation because she brought out an eyedropper and started feeding the little guy. Soon he was warm and feed and looking a lot better. Looking too young to be on his own we called the Humane Society and they agreed to take him. They said to call in a day or so and they will give us an update. Maybe we can get him back after he is well and he will be our resort hummingbird.


  1. Ohhhhh, Dan this is such a nice thing all of you are doing. Thank you on behalf of the hummingbird and all of us who "can't watch them suffer" either. Really, thank you.

  2. We called today and he was well so they released him. We were a little upset because we wanted him back to release in the resort but at least he is well.

  3. That's wonderful. I'm amazed that the bird let anyone get so close.

  4. He really didn’t have much choice at first. He was too cold and weak to fight. Later I think he got comfortable with us and knew we meant no harm.
