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.

Missoula Montana

There were many short thunderstorms yesterday afternoon and by evening is continued raining. When we woke this morning it was still raining. I thought, maybe I will have to drive in the rain this time. It’s been so long since I used my windshield wipers, I didn’t even know if they worked. Well by the time we crawled out of bed, it stopped raining. We hit the road with cloudy skies. As we were leaving the park Susan spotted 2 foxes romping in the field across the street. That was kind of cool.

As we headed on down the road I could see the rain falling up ahead and hoped we would go around it. Well our luck ran out. We hit a hailstorm. Running down the interstate at 60+ with hail hitting the windshield is pretty scary. Good thing they make them things strong. It was short lived fortunately and the rest of the drive was OK. The wipers did work by the way.

We are in Missoula for tonight. I usually don’t make reservations but since it is the 4th of July weekend I did. Good thing since when I approached the door of the campground office I spotted a sign saying Sorry Campground Full Tonight. Tomorrow we will be parked at our friend’s house in Kalispell so we will be good for the rest of the weekend. It looks like the weather is going to get better for a while. We have been very fortunate that until today, all the thunder, lightning, and rain has been at night which makes sleeping real nice and driving safe.
