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.

I hate LA

Today we drove through parts of Los Angeles. The roads are crap and no mater what day it is or time of day the traffic is terrible. I hade a snoot in a Mercedes SUV squeeze between me and car in front of me then get Pissed because I was too close to him so he literally stopped in front of me in the middle of the freeway. Good thing the traffic was only going about 25 mph at the time. Since I am in no hurry I just chuckled and waited until he decide to take off again. All he accomplished was pissing himself off even more because it didn’t bother me at all. I wish I had got his license number so I could get his address and drop him a note saying, “That was quite entertaining. Hope you feel better now.”

We are now in Ontario at the Elks Lodge. This is where we stay when we go to the NASCAR race in Fontana. I think we confused a few folks here because I had at least 2 people ask if the race was this week. I guess we have stayed here enough that we get recognized.

We are all pretty sad because this is the last stop before we take Landen back home tomorrow. We will still get to spend some time with him before we head back to Havasu because we are going to hangout for a while since it is still over 100 degrees in Arizona. Landen and his sister Alexa want to spend the night together in the motorhome before we go back. That should be fun…


  1. What a way to end a awesome voyage in traffic in L.A.. Thanks so much for sharing your adventures with us (and the rest of the world) I am sure it will stay with Landen for his life time. Again thanks.

  2. You have provided a summer of fun that Landen will never forget nor will you!

  3. On the subject of race weekends...California just lost it's Oct. race for next year. The spring race will be at the end of March. Bummer.
