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.

Fun weekend

It all started Thursday with the run over to Laughlin Nevada for the River Run Bike Rally. I wrote about that in the last post. This weekend was also the 5th annual Desert Storm Boat Race on Lake Havasu.

Friday morning I want down to the channel for the boat parade. I ran out of space on my camera’s memory card. There were so many boats I couldn’t get them all. I was there for about 4 hours and decided I had seen enough…for the day. I knew I would be back before the weekend was over. I was right, because Friday night we got a call from a friend inviting us for a day on their boat to watch the time trials from the water. Getting up and personal, as close as they let us, was a thrill. Some of these guys were blowing past us at over 170 mph, top speed was 175 mph done by a 50-foot Mystic Catamaran. THAT’S FAST ON THE WATER. Each boat/team had to pass a technical inspection, which consists of checking for approved helmets, life jackets, safety shut off switch and every person on board had to pass a breathalyzer test. Later we took a ride down the lake and back. There were SO MANY boats on the lake. Some of them were going past us like we were going backwards. I posted pictures, check them out. After Thursdays rainy weather, the rest of the weekend was fantastic with temps pushing into the 90s.


  1. OK I just sat here and looked at all the photos and I was trying to think of something to say without using any cuss words like Hokie **** or no ******* way. Where in the H*** is all the **** money coming from. Dan if you don't wanna post this no problem. But please fill in the blanks in your mind and delete it... HAhaHAha..

  2. Not only are the boats expensive but also you should see the trucks that bring them out. Some even have semi trucks full of spare parts and machine shops. Not only that but the owners fly in, in their Leer Jets, I know ‘cause they were flying over the resort all weekend. Apparently the struggling economy doesn’t pertain to some.
