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.

Dodged a bullet

Sometimes you have to spend a little money to save a lot of money. Today I did just that. We have a very limited calling plan on our phone and have been able to live within those limitations for a long time. But things in life change and so did our calling habits. We have been receiving and making a lot of calls outside of the Verizon network during this last billing period and have greatly exceeded our allowed minutes. I was looking at an additional $400+ this month over and above our usual bill. So what I did was bumped up to the next plan, which not only gives us twice the minutes but also allows us to add 5 out of network numbers to call without using our minutes. Now the reason I dodged the bullet is because during the change over I was given the option to start this new plan beginning with the present billing period. So the additional minutes are now covered. So for only an additional $20 a month I saved over $400 in just this month.


  1. Smart move and GREAT catch.
    So did this change your air card to? We have been Verizon for 16 years and are thinking about cutting the land line and cable internet once we move. All of our contacts are Verizon except one.

  2. No didn’t change the Aircard plan at all.
