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.

All ready

We are all ready to head on out of here tomorrow. It will take us 3 hours to travel over to Goodyear Arizona where we will park the motorhome. The RV Park we are staying in is about 13 miles from the track so it’s about a 20 minute drive. We have infield passes so we can drive right into the infield where our daughter’s motorhome is. The wind has come up around here as usual. It’s supposed to be windy tomorrow also but not as bad as today. Hopefully we will get out of here before it get too bad. I hate driving in the wind.

The drive tomorrow is going to also be a test. Since the last time I had my brakes worked on they have been doing some real strange things. I have been told it might be due to the Anti Lock Brake system so I pulled the ABS fuse to disable the system. If the problem goes away I will know for sure it is the ABS that is causing the problem. We will see tomorrow.
