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.

Down the road a bit

We traveled down the road a bit. Following the Columbia River we are now in an Oregon State Park called Ainsworth in Bridal Veil.

This park is pretty much in the woods along the Columbia River. We got lucky since this is a first come first serve park. No reservations. There were about 3 sites left when we got here and one of them we probably wouldn’t fit. We arrived at about 11:00a and if we had been any later we would have been out of luck. The drive here was an easy one with the river in sight the whole trip.

At one point we got a good look at Mount Hood. At over 11,000 feet it really stands out. We will be here for two nights and tomorrow we will be checking out the waterfalls along the Historic Columbia River Highway. There are seven waterfalls along this stretch. Landen is looking forward to seeing them.


  1. How about the names of the campgrounds, as we are going to Wash. Oregon this summer.

  2. When I get some time I will add them to my Campground Review section.
