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.

Interesting day

My day started out pretty good today as I popped out of the motorhome to be greeted by this little guy.

Look how small he is compared to my finger. I watched as I sipped on my coffee and soon he scurried off. A bit later I turned on my patio TV and was disappointed at what the Stock Market was doing. After today, this year has been a total loss. In other words the market took back all the gains I made so far this year.

On a good note, I called about the shade screen I ordered for our patio and they informed me it would be installed today. I hurried off to put gas in the car before they came but when I got back they were here and just about had the job done. Wow, that was quick.

Now I feel better about my patio furniture knowing that I won’t have to buy a new set next year after the sun destroys this set. The shade will keep the sun from baking it and also me. The shade will roll up when I want my views, even thought I can see through it, or I can roll it down to protect my patio.

I like cold beer as everyone else does, even though it’s fake beer (non-alcohol), but I guess I got my frig a bit too cold.

I found this can sitting in the bottom of our casita refrigerator after it tied turning itself inside out knocking it off the shelf. Now that’s cold.
