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.

I am officially a Zonie. That’s what we used to call people from Arizona that would show up in California during the summer. When I say I am a Zonie, I mean I went to the Arizona Motor Vehicles Department and got my Arizona drivers license. Since we own an RV lot in Arizona and are severing our ties with California I decided to get an Arizona license. What a simple process. I simply filled out the short form, handed them $10, stood on the line for a photo and the machine spit out my license. That’s it, no driving test, no written test, no eye test, no questions asked.

    Hey...I know a Zonie, well she was a Zonie in 1983 until she moved to CA in 1983 and hasn't left since then. Her in laws are parents thought. In my experience Zonies are great people, I'm sure you'll live up to the reputation.

    Hey Dan, we used to call people from Arizona "Zoners". So which do you like better?? : ) Isn't it funny how some states are so easy when it comes to things like getting your license. Montana is the same way. Filled out a form, showed them my California license and then they took my picture and money and it was done. And best part is that it's good for 5 years hear and there are no lines at the DMV, ever.
