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.

What boycott

After the signing of State Bill SB-1070, which gives the local law enforcement the right to question the legal status of a suspected illegal immigrant, several California cities staged a boycott against Arizona claiming this could lead to racial profiling. Well it appears the boycott is having no effect on Lake Havasu City since the hotels and campgrounds are reporting record bookings for this holiday weekend. In the same sense San Diego has reported a number of reservation cancellations from Arizona residents for the summer. The term “Stepping on your own…well you know what” comes to mind.

The weather has been fabulous here in Havasu. We haven’t seen the 3 digit temperatures we usually begin to see this time of year. It has been very warm but comfortable.

We have been of the lake a couple of times this month and the water is smooth as glass and the temperature is very nice. The resort is empty and I personally think everyone left too early, but they all had their own reason to head north this soon.

We will be heading to California soon but only for about 10 days to visit with family and pick up our grandson for a summer of travel. We are really looking forward to having him for the summer and he can’t wait to travel with us. He calls every night and talks to Susan about it.

  1. I being from Michigan am a long way from the problems at the border of Mexico. But what I've read and heard on TV...I fully support Arizona and their "new" law enforcement. Why can't the other states who have a border with Mexico follow in their footsteps? I believe that might make Washington support the new law! Hope I haven't offended anyone as this is just my humble opinion.
    You and Susan have a great holiday weekend, and summer with your grandson.
