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.

Back in California

This morning we crossed the border and are now back in California. The drive was similar to yesterday morning with lots of fog. We traveled up and down fog covered curvy 7% grades hanging on the edge of the Oregon and California coast. I am sure it scared the hell out of Susan even thought she didn’t say a word. I on the other hand was in control of the gears, accelerator, and brake so I had it under total control and the motorhome handled it well. We are in Eureka at the Elks Lodge where we will stay for a couple of days. Landen is happy that he will get to sleep in for a change and not have to be awaken for an early departure. The reason for the early departures is because most Elks Lodges do not take reservations and the early bird gets the worm…or campsite in this case.

Upon arrival I hopped out of the motorhome and spotted the motorhome of a friend and fellow Elk from my home lodge. He and family are making their way up the coast as we make our way down. Since he has been where we are going and we have been were he is going we swapped stories and info on good camp spots.
