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.

Crazy day

Today was a mess…Weather wise that is. We were supposed to have some guests visit us and stay for a week here at the resort but they emailed me and said they would wait a day or more for the wind to subside. Wise move since today was a mixed bag of weather. Last night the wind blew so hard I was wondering if we were going to have a tornado or something. The motorhome was shaking and rocking quite a bit. It blew in to the morning until about 8:00a when suddenly it stopped, the clouds went away and it started to warm up. Then as suddenly as the nice weather came it went away. The wind roared again and even a few raindrops fell.

These photos were when it was sunny here but raining off in the distance. This went on most of the day. It made for kind of a useless day. I did get the refrigerator defrosted though. It’s not supposed to get any better for the next couple of days.
