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.

Good but disappointing

Today was another good day in the park, but also disappointing. The good part was we saw a bear.

We were on our way back and came across a “bear Jam”. That’s what they call it when all the traffic is jammed up and you can’t get through. We knew right a way it must be a bear. The disappointing part was Mammoth Hot Springs is nearly dried up.

When we came through here in 2005 it was one of the best things to see in the park. Now I would probably not bother unless you have plenty of time.

There are just a few hot springs flowing. I would have gone back over to the Yellowstone Grand Canyon waterfalls if I had known the hot springs were dry. On the way back from the springs the wind was howling. I was driving along and saw a tree blow over right in front of me. Fortunately it only made it to the edge of the road and didn’t land in the road.

Today’s weather was a mirror of yesterday. We woke to a thunderstorm that passed over by the time we were ready to go. So far the thunderstorms haven’t arrived this afternoon but the wind is blowing and I can see them off in the distance. I just hope they will be done in the morning like the last two mornings because we are moving on tomorrow. Tomorrow’s drive should be a nice easy, little over two-hour trip. We will be following the Gallatin River up to interstate 90 then over to Three Forks where we will spend a night. Landen just had a ball and doesn’t want to leave.
