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.

Three Forks

We left Yellowstone this morning and are now in Three Forks Montana. It got down in the 40 last night so this morning Susan kicked on the furnace to take the chill off. When not running the furnace for a while we usually get a little burnt dust smell for a while. This time it smelled like plastic burning and set off the smoke alarms so we quickly turned the furnace off. Looks like I will have to tear into it to see what’s going on. I am sure it just needs a good cleaning.

Anyway, the drive here to Three Forks was real scenic. We had to take a different route than planned because of construction but I had taken this route before and knew it was a good one. It was a short 2 hour drive and we got here about 11:00a. The weather was good until about 2:30 when another thunderstorm came through. It was intense but short. This is a nice place. We came thought here before when it was a KOA. It is no longer a KOA, which is good because it would probably cost another $10 if it were. As it is they charged us an extra $2 for Landen. I don’t understand what it is that Landen will do that will cost them $2 a day. We are only doing one night here.

  1. My husband and I were just talking about leaving our camp hosting post and taking a few months to see Yellowstone and to visit some friends in Missoula, MT. If you have a minute, come on over and visit my two blogs: A Camp Host Housewife's Meanderings and Levonne's Pretty Pics. Thanks.
