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.

Windy Windy

We got an early start this morning and since it was a short drive we arrived at the campground here in Bandon Oregon at about 10:30a. Since we arrived this early, our site was still occupied. We only had a few minute wait though until our site was clear. I am not sure why they just didn’t put us in another site since there are a bunch that are open. The site they put us in is in the back and apparently an unforgotten area of the campground. It is a gravel site with weeds growing up through while the other sites are cement pads with an attempt at some landscaping. We are here for 2 nights so it will due.

While here the wind started to kick up.

Landen and I took off to see the beach and while we were gone Susan said the satellite dish, which is on a tripod, blew over 3 times even though I had it tied down. By the time I got back it was laying on its face with the arm broken off. Good thing I am handy at fixing things. I just drilled out the arm and added some screws and we were back in business. After getting set back up Susan noticed we were not getting our Showtime channels. I had a hunch and checked and sure enough, our free year of showtime had expired today.

Check this out. If you click here you can see a satellite view of our trip. If you zoom in you can see the exact site we occupied in the different RV Parks.
