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.

Another oner nighter

We are now at the Brookings Oregon Elks RV Park. This is only available to Elks members. I have stayed at a lot of Elks Lodges but this one is the best yet

with 50 amps and cable TV, no sewer but they do have 2 dump stations. It is actually an actual RV Park a few blocks from the lodge. We are doing a one nighter here and its off again I the morning. Not much going on today so I had a little time to clean and do a little maintenance on the motorhome. Also got some time to play a game of catch with Landen after dinner.


  1. Dan; Look for Ralph and Deb they are around there somewhere. Enjoy the trip. We are in Ohio headed towards Pennsylvania. (By Car) Yuck hotels are scary. Wish we were in the MH.

  2. I always seem to run into Ralph and Deb at the Vista Elks Lodge. I will keep an eye out for them since we are stopping at a bunch of lodges in California. Have a good time on your trip and watch out for them bed bugs, yuck!
