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.

My new boat

Yeah I wish! As I said to my friend, “I would like to take a ride in this thing…it would scare the hell out of me, but I would like to go.” If you look carefully, you can spot me standing next to it.

This was one of the Hot Boats at the 19th Annual Boat Show at Lake Havasu State Park.

These boats are too wide to travel down the streets so they have to use these special trailers with hydraulic tilt to haul them. And at 44 feet long, 12 feet wide, and two 1,250 hp motors on board, you aren’t going to haul this with your average family pickup. A lot of the big manufacturers were at the show which is not unusual as a lot of them are right here in Lake Havasu City.

Tuesday is the official start of Spring Break here at the lake and the weather is shaping up for it. It went from the 60s last week to the 80s this week. We are supposed to go out boating Thursday, hope it’s not too crazy out on the lake.
