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.

Whew, Just made it

Last night I called the Elks Lodge here in Napa and asked about availability of an RV site. They told me they were full but one was pulling out in the morning. Well when we arrived this morning at around 10:00a sure enough, there was one site available. And it is a fine site at that. It is an end site so we don’t have to stare at the RV next door. Instead we have a view of the woods and an active jogging trail. Beyond the jogging trail is the Napa River and beyond that are wine vineyards.


  1. Dan, as you stay quite often at Elks Lodges in the West, can you tell me if there are plenty of Elks Lodges along the Eastern part of the US that also have camping facilities.
    Being from MI. and planning on traveling when I retire this winter and this would really help the budget.
    I tried to email you on netzero but it would not go through.
    Thanks for any info you can furnish me about the elks.
    Fred H.

  2. I would imagine that doing the weekends that the campsites fill up pretty fast. Sounds like a great site. Your are for sure getting your money's worth.

  3. You must be in #7, its the best site. What a experience you have provided Landen, something he will never forget. Enjoy the rest of the trip.

  4. Your right Ralph. It’s the best site in my opinion.

    Fred, I emailed you the info you need.
