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.

A day of R & R

We have been just going and going this whole trip. Today we took our time getting up and just took a short drive over to Ferndale,

a Victorian town here in Humboldt County, then came back to the motorhome to just sit and relax. Tonight we are heading over to the Samoa Cook House, a real old time lumber camp cookhouse. They have no menu, you get what they are serving that day. They bring it out to you in bowls and you serve yourself and can have all you want. You sit at long tables with everyone else. Susan and I have been there before and the food is great.

I for got to tell you about the experience we had in Bandon Oregon. The reason for stopping in Bandon was to visit the West Coast Game Park. This is a collection of animals such as lions, tigers, and bears. They bring out the young for the public to pet. There are also many animals such as deer, lamas, donkeys, goats, and more wandering around free.

Landen didn’t want to leave after making some friends.

    "They bring it out to you in bowels..."

    That doesn't sound appetizing. Maybe that's why their food tastes like $hi*.

  2. Steve and I ate at the Samoa Cookhouse too. Ray told us about it. It was really good and we enjoyed the interesting story they had there about how it got started.

    Tell Landon and Susan I am so jealous to see them and the lion cub! Looks like this has been just the best trip.

  3. Sandy, I don’t remember who it was that told me about the Cookhouse but now that you mention it, it may have been Ray and Judy.

  4. "They bring it out to you in bowels..."

    Huh, Spell checker didn’t catch that one…

    Actually it tastes pretty good.

  5. All I can say is "hahahahahaha" I want to thank you all for the laugh. Dan I have said it before and I will say it again. You are showing your grandson the time of his life and he will remember this trip for the rest of his life..
